This looks terrifying…
My biggest fear in life — the reason I moved out of Texas — is being caught in a tornado.
Been there on more than one occasion. It’s absolutely the worst experience. It will make you physically sick with fear.
That’s one reason why I did not want to go see the 1996 disaster classic Twister.
My friends had to take me kicking and screaming, and I covered my eyes in absolute panic almost the entire time.
Now, they have made a sequel to the cult favorite, Twister, and it promises to keep you on the edge of your seat.
What will Twisters be about?
As the name implies, Twisters is going to be about — well — twisters. Good ol’ tornados.
The film is going to follow a group of storm chasers in Oklahoma who want to deploy a research device into the heart of a tornado.
They are about to get more than they bargained for.
Who stars in Twisters?
Unfortunately, with the death of Bill Paxton in 2017, it is certain that his character will not be returning for the sequel
Twisters is going to have an entire new cast for a new generation.
You might recognize a few of these names (like, all of them).
Anthony Ramos (In The Heights, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts), Brandon Perea (The OA, Nope), and Daryl McCormack (Peaky Blinders, Good Luck to You, Leo Grande).
You can also look forward to seeing Maura Tierney (ER, The Affair), Harry Hadden-Paton (Downton Abbey, The Crown), Sasha Lane (Loki, How to Blow Up a Pipeline), Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Nik Dodani (Atypical, Dear Evan Hensen), David Corenswet (The Politician, Pearl), Tunde Adebimpe (Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Idol) and Katy O’Brian (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, The Mandalorian).
Will Helen Hunt reprise her role for Twisters?
Helen Hunt has not yet been confirmed as a cast member for this terrifying sequel, but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen.
I guess you’re just going to have to watch it and see!
When will Twisters hit theaters?
We have a while to build up the fear and anticipation for this film.
Twisters is supposed to drop into theaters on July 19th of 2024.
