Coppola’s Megalopolis shocks in first image revealed

Los Angeles, May 2 (Prensa Latina) The first image of the self-financed film Megalopolis, by legendary American filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, is already spreading on the Internet and today generates expectations for the film's imminent release.

The teaser shows stars Adam Driver and Nathalie Emmanuel in the distant future, with a dystopian New York behind them, outlining what one of the most anticipated feature films of 2024 is all about.

The image sets an intriguing tone for the film, as the city plays as important a role here as its stellar actors.

Megalopolis is a science fiction film that will soon debut at the 77th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, to be held May 14-25.

This film raises even more expectations because it has been an exciting project for the acclaimed octogenarian director, creator of such cinema classics as The Godfather and Apocalypse Now.

It was made at significant personal cost, without any studio backing, and he is seeking a distribution deal.

The film, which Coppola says he began writing in 1983, tells the story of the rebuilding of New York after the city was leveled by a cataclysm.

Two people fight for the lead in the reconstruction: an idealistic architect (played by Adam Driver) and a pragmatic businessman (Giancarlo Esposito).
