It is time, once again, to run away from an extreme weather event. That’s right: In the trailer for Twisters (why didn’t we just call it TwIIster?), tiny puny humans get out of their truck and run away from a tornado. Just like that time in The Day After Tomorrow when foolish humans ran away from an extreme freeze! We’re so good at running away from weather.
Except when we’re really good at running toward weather, which seems to be the sole personality trait of Glen Powell’s character in this film. (That and having alarmingly white teeth.) He’s a “tornado wrangler” who teams up with Daisy Edgar-Jones, who is traumatized by a very bad encounter with a tornado (presumably the one at the start of the trailer). Here’s the synopsis:
Twisters appears to also star a lot of Ram pickups. It is not a reboot or a remake, but its very own story, just—let’s say—set in the greater Twister cinematic universe. Unfortunately, it does not star Helen Hunt, unless maybe it secretly does. (Edgar-Jones could totally be Hunt’s character’s kid.) The film is written by Mark L. Smith (The Revanant); the late Michael Crichton, who wrote Twister, also gets credit.
