No way! Universal Pictures has just dropped the amazing first trailer for “Twisters” and no it’s not a movie about those delicious chicken wraps from KFC (Although I would watch that). Rather it’s what they are calling a “current-day chapter of the 1996 blockbuster ‘Twister’”. A “Legacy-Sequel” if you will.

Daisy Edgar-Jones stars as Kate Cooper, a former storm chaser haunted by a devastating encounter with a tornado during her college years who now studies storm patterns on screens safely in New York City. She is lured back to the open plains by her friend, Javi (Golden Globe nominee Anthony Ramos, In the Heights) to test a groundbreaking new tracking system. There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens (Powell), the charming and reckless social-media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures with his raucous crew, the more dangerous the better. As storm season intensifies, terrifying phenomena never seen before are unleashed, and Kate, Tyler and their competing teams find themselves squarely in the paths of multiple storm systems converging over central Oklahoma in the fight of their lives.
The film be distributed by Universal Pictures domestically and by Warner Bros. Pictures internationally.
The original Twister was released back in 1996 and starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt as the a rag-tag band of tornado chasers on a perilous quest to test a new sensor device.
