Francis Ford Coppola’s “Megalopolis”: Watch First Look Teaser for Most Talked About Film of 2024


Francis Ford Coppola directed three of the greatest movies of all time: “The Godfather I & II” and “Apocalypse Now.”

Now he’s gambling everything on “Megalopolis.” It’s going to the Cannes Film Festival in competition without a distributor.

Adam Driver and Giancarlo Esposito star with a huge A list cast including Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Grace VanderWaal, Kathryn Hunter, Talia Shire, Dustin Hoffman, and D. B. Sweeney.

In this first teaser trailer, the film looks like it’s metaphysical with sci fi mixed in. The cinematography already seems sensational.

Can’t wait to see more! Coppola has put $100 million of his own money into project by leveraging his winery. Let’s hope he has a hit and can make toasts soon!
