Riding the Storm of the Century in the New “Twisters” Trailer

The second trailer for Minari director Lee Isaac Chung’s Twisters has whipped into view, giving us a longer look at what the talented Chung has done with the sequel to the 1996 original starring Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton.

We open on a rodeo where bucking broncos have their violent twisting upstaged by the titular weather event. Twisters is centered on Kate Cooper (Daisy Edgar-Jones), a young woman with a vertiginous history with a cataclysmic twister she faced when she was in college, and she’s been haunted by the experience ever since. But Kate’s not the type to run from her fears; instead, she’s been studying the weather phenomena from the tornado-free safety of New York City. But Twisters, true to its title, will force Kate to face her fears—or, as the film’s official Twitter page says, ride ’em:

Kate’s inevitable run-in with the fearsome tornadoes occurs when Javi (Anthony Ramos) asks her to help test his ground-breaking new tracking system. Once she’s back in the field, Kate meets Tyloer Owens (Glen Powell), a social media maverick who has built his social stardom by sharing his death-defying twister experiences with his many followers; the more ferocious the twister, the more fans Owens whips into a frenzy. These two will be tossed together, quite literally, during a brutal storm season that puts them in the path of multiple huge storm systems converging over central Oklahoma.

Joining Jones and Powell are Brandon Perea (Nope), Sasha Lane (American Honey), Daryl McCormack (Peaky Blinders), Kiernan Shipka (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Nik Dodani (Atypical) and Maura Tierney (Beautiful Boy)

Twisters spins into theaters on July 19.
