Oscar-winning filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola shared the teaser-trailer his new film Megalopolis, which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and will be released in theaters later this year.  The film marks Coppola’s first film as director in nearly 13 years (since 2011’s Twixt).

The epic sci-fi drama, described as “a Roman Epic fable set in an imagined Modern America,” is written, directed and produced by Coppola and stars Adam Driver, Giancarlo Esposito and Nathalie Emmanuel.

An official synopsis reads: “The City of New Rome must change, causing conflict between Cesar Catilina (Driver), a genius artist who seeks to leap into a utopian, idealistic future, and his opposition, Mayor Franklyn Cicero (Esposito), who remains committed to a regressive status quo, perpetuating greed, special interests, and partisan warfare. Torn between them is socialite Julia Cicero (Emmanuel), the mayor’s daughter, whose love for Cesar has divided her loyalties, forcing her to discover what she truly believes humanity deserves.” 

The cast also includes Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Voight, Jason Schwartzman, Talia Shire, Grace VanderWaal, Laurence Fishburne, Kathryn Hunter and Dustin Hoffman.
