The first trailer for the stand-alone sequel Twisters, which touched down during the Super Bowl show, sees Glen Powell, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and Anthony Ramos struggle for survival amidst some serious weather.

The Universal Pictures film, which is directed by Lee Isaac Chung, is a follow-up to Jan de Bont’s 1996 flick Twister.

Twister centred on Bill and Jo Harding (Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt), advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce who must team up to test an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes sweeping across Oklahoma.

In this next chapter, Edgar-Jones will star as a former storm chaser who, after surviving a disastrous tornado encounter, now works a desk job. However, she will soon be forced to go out into the breach once more.

Twisters also co-stars Kiernan Shipka, future Superman David Corenswet, Sasha Lane, Maura Tierney, Katy O’Brian, Brandon Perea, Daryl McCormack, Harry Hadden-Paton, Nik Dodani, and Tunde Adebimpe.

Chung directs from a script by Mark L. Smith, with Patrick Crowley, Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Steven Spielberg producing (the latter of whom also produced the original film).

Watch the Twisters trailer below, ahead of its release in cinemas July 19th.
