This summer, the epic disaster film genre returns with a thrilling, suspenseful cinematic adventure at the heart of one of nature’s most gripping and destructive forces. From the producers of the Jurassic, Bourne, and Indiana Jones movies comes “Twisters,” the new chapter of the successful 1996 film “Twister,” directed by Lee Isaac Chung, the Oscar-nominated writer and director of “Minari.” “Twisters” stars Golden Globe nominee Daisy Edgar-Jones (“Where the Crawdads Sing,” “Normal People”) and Glen Powell (“Set It Up,” “Top Gun: Maverick”) as two opposing forces working together to predict and possibly tame the immense power of tornadoes.

Edgar-Jones portrays Kate Cooper, a former storm chaser who can’t get over a past tragedy caused by a tornado. Now, she studies storm patterns from the safety of her home in New York but gets drawn back into the open plains by her friend, Javi, to test a groundbreaking tracking system. There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens (Powell), a charming and reckless social media star who has become famous for his posts about his daring storm-chasing adventures.

As storm season intensifies, terrifying and unprecedented weather phenomena are unleashed. Kate and Tyler, with their rival teams, find themselves fighting for their lives amid multiple storms converging over central Oklahoma.

“Twisters” also stars Golden Globe nominee Anthony Ramos (“In the Heights”) as Javi, Brandon Perea from “Nope,” Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney (“Beautiful Boy”), Sasha Lane (“American Honey”), David Corenswet (upcoming “Superman: Legacy”), Daryl McCormack (“Peaky Blinders”), Kiernan Shipka (“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”), and Nick Dodani (“Atypical”).

Chung directs the screenplay by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Mark L. Smith (“The Revenant”), based on a story by Joseph Kosinski (“Oblivion”). The production is headed by Oscar nominee Frank Marshall (Jurassic and Indiana Jones movies) and Patrick Crowley (Jurassic and Bourne movies). Steven Spielberg, Thomas Hayslip, and Ashley Jay Sandberg are executive producers.

The cinematographer is Dan Mindel (“Mission: Impossible III,” “Star Trek,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”), production designer is Patrick Sullivan (“Brightburn,” “Twister”), editor is Terilyn A. Shropshire (“The Woman King”), costume designer is Eunice Jera Lee (“Bottoms,” “How to Blow Up a Pipeline”), and composer is Benjamin Wallfisch (“Blade Runner 2049,” “The Flash”).
