First Look Teaser for Coppola’s ‘Megalopolis’ Movie with Adam Driver | FirstShowing.net

“Time stop!!” The French distributor Le Pacte has released the first look teaser for Megalopolis, unveiling the very first reveal of any actual footage from this intriguing new film. Megalopolis is director Francis Ford Coppola’s latest ambitious project, a $100M+ project that he has been trying to make ever since he first conceived the film in 1979. The basic setup is: an architect wants to rebuild New York City as a utopia following a devastating disaster. It’s not actually NYC, but a giant city like NYC hence the Megalopolis title. The architect’s plan is opposed by the mayor, who has other ideas for the city. It’s premiering at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival in the Main Competition in a few weeks (we’ll be there!), which is why France gets to kick off the marketing. The Megalopolis ensemble cast includes Adam Driver as Caesar, Giancarlo Esposito, Nathalie Emmanuel, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Voight, Jason Schwartzman, Talia Shire, Grave Vanderwaal, Kathryn Hunter, and Dustin Hoffman. This teaser is just one scene from the film with Adam Driver on top of a building (that looks like the Chrysler Building) & that’s it so far.

Here’s the first look French teaser trailer for Francis Ford Coppola’s Megalopolis, direct from YouTube:

An accident destroys a New York City-like metropolis already in decay. Cesar, an idealist, aims to rebuild the city as a sustainable utopia, while the venal mayor, Frank Cicero, has other plans. Coming between the opposing men and their visions is Frank’s socialite daughter, Julia. Tired of the attention and power she was born with, Julia searches for her life’s meaning. Megalopolis is written and directed by the legendary American filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, his 23rd feature film, director of many other films including The Godfather Trilogy Part I-III, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, One from the Heart, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, The Cotton Club, Peggy Sue Got Married, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Jack, The Rainmaker, Youth Without Youth, Tetro, and Twixt previously. It’s also produced by Coppola, with Michael Bederman and Barry J. Hirsch. Made by Coppola’s company American Zoetrope. The film is premiering at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival in the Main Competition this May. No US release date has been set yet. Le Pacte will debut Coppola’s Megalopolis in French cinemas in September this year. First impression? Who’s intrigued?
