      Because Coppola is embroiled in a major ped uh file scandal since the 90's. That's why he became persona non grata in PedoWood and all his directorial efforts since the scandal have bombed and why no studio wants to work with him.

      Agreed. Hollywood is so "risk averse" that they spend 100s of millions on reboots, remakes, prequels, sequels, etc. because they feel established titles will bring in audiences. Unfortunately, the people writing, directing, etc. have little talent, so they flop as we have been seeing. That money would be far better risked on an established filmmaker like Coppola, even with his missteps, and an original story (which is what fans have been asking for) like Megalopolis.

      He is doing exactly the same thing he did with One From the Heart in 1981, when he was getting in trouble with bad press because of conflicts with the distributors. Coppola booked Radio City Music Hall for one night for a preview of the movie to try and break the bad news cycle and solve the conflict with the distributors. One From the Heart tanked in the box office for being to bold and original, I love it, it's a fabulous movie, far from his best but a great movie anyway, but also because of bad press, although that was a movie that would never be a box office champ.

Things like Abigail, Civil War and The Fall Guy, that were rated positively, didn't make returns.

    As an artist and lover of film and magic I see Francis and his approach to life as an inspiration beyond just a biography of achievements and "failures." He keeps telling everyone what's possible and truly hopes they hear and use his words. He used to say "there will be a Mozart of film and some kid will pick up a camera..." This was wonderful to hear and he still brings me back to that hopeful place every artist loves to begin at. Who can not wait to see this!?

So it will have a big studio behind it in the US.

    Hands down the best trailer I’ve seen all year. I was very interested in this movie to begin with but now I’m more excited for it than anything else coming out

    I got a little nostalgic/excited shiver when the American Zoetrope logo came up. Looks fantastic; cinema in all its wild, audacious ambition - as it ought to be, and mostly hasn't been for a less than Marvelous decade and a half.
    Welcome back, Mr. C. You've been missed.

    Finally!! Something new and not just a remake, reboot or origin story where we "finally" get to see the backstory of Palace Guard #7 in Sleeping Beauty and how he ended up becoming a palace guard!

    Architecture and design elements central to the film. Haven't seen that strong architecture in film since since Blade Runner and 2001 but let's wait and see...

      The entire premise of the film is all about futuristic architecture. It's going to blow your mind.

      @@necromaya Yes I'm eager to see Coppola's take but for those of us in contemporary architecture and design the bar for "futuristic architecture" is quite high because of the last 20 years with computational design and now AI. Fingers crossed!
