First Official Trailer for Francis Ford Coppola's Tetro
The official trailer for director Francis Ford Coppola's latest film, Tetro, debuted on YouTube this weekend. A lot of people believe that Coppola has lost it recently, and I'm not sure that this trailer does anything to further prove that he has or hasn't lost his mind, however, it is at least very interesting. There's no denying that after all that Coppola has achieved in his life, that he has quite a bit of filmmaking talent, and that's at least evident in this trailer for Tetro. Newcomer Alden Ehrenreich stars as Bennie and Vincent Gallo stars as his brother Tetro, a once-promising writer who is now a remnant of his former self. Check it out below.
Coppola declined an offer to debut this at Cannes, saying, "this is an independent film, and I felt that being invited for a non-competition gala screening wasn't true to the personal and independent nature of this."
Watch the official trailer for Francis Ford Coppola's Tetro:
Bennie (Ehrenreich) travels to Buenos Aires to find his long-missing older brother Tetro (Gallo), a once-promising writer who is now a remnant of his former self. Bennie's discovery of his brother's near-finished play might hold the answer to understanding their shared past and renewing their bond.
Tetro is both written and directed by profound Academy Award winning filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, of everything from Dementia 13 to all three The Godfather films to Apocalypse Now to Rumble Fish to Bram Stoker's Dracula to John Grisham's The Rainmaker to Youth Without Youth most recently. The film was shot in Argentina last year and is being released independently by Coppola's own American Zoetrope. Tetro is tentatively set to debut in very limited theaters in the US starting on June 11th this very summer.
