Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis

The teaser trailer for this movie is out.  Check it out:





I'm not terribly impressed by the trailer.   :Hqn66ku:

I'm also not very optimistic about this movie.  Coppola made some some of the greatest movies ever back in the 1970s, but he arguably hasn't made a truly great movie since Apocalypse Now.

What do y'all think?  Does the movie look interesting to you?  Do you plan to see it?  Do you think Coppola, at the age of 85, still has what it takes?

The movie comes out May 17th.

Seems like the tagline should be: "Darth Emo discovers the Force."
Mulder: "If you're distracted by fear of those around you, it keeps you from seeing the actions of those above."
The X-Files: "Blood"

That is one terrible trailer.

The premise could be interesting. I'm just worried from the Wikipedia summary that the story being centered around the mayor's daughter might be dull. I'm assuming she'll probably meet up with and become allies with Cesar to go on time-stopping hijinks with, but she by no means sounds like the main character.
