‘Megalopolis’ Teaser: Francis Ford Coppola Dedicates Film To Late Wife Eleanor

Francis Ford Coppola took to Instagram today and posted the first teaser from his eagerly awaited film, Megalopolis.

Along with the teaser, he posted a tribute to his late wife in the captions.

“Megalopolis has always been a film dedicated to my dear wife Eleanor,” he wrote. “I really had hoped to celebrate her birthday together this May 4th. But sadly that was not to be, so let me share with everyone a gift on her behalf.”

Adam Driver stars in Megalopolis as an idealistic architect attempting to rebuild New York as an American Utopia, with the ensemble cast also featuring Nathalie Emmanuel, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voigt, Giancarlo Esposito, Laurence Fishburne and Kathryn Hunter.

The film’s French deal with distributor Le Pacte and the involvement of longtime Coppola collaborator Paul Rassam were confirmed this week by Deadline. It will premiere in Competition at Cannes this month.

Speculation has been rife around rollout plans for the $120M self-financed epic ever since Coppola showed it for the first time to buyers at L.A.’s Universal CityWalk Imax Theater at the end of March, with the screening followed shortly after by news of its Cannes selection.
