Francis Ford Coppola's Twixt drummed up a lot of Comic-Con press, but once you take a look at the ridiculous trailer starring Val Kilmer as a supernatural writer, you may not understand why.
The movie itself, which was written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, didn't get a lot of praise. Instead the panel which was hosted by Kilmer and FFC, is rumored to be one of the better panels ever hosted at Comic-Con. Why? Because the team of panelists decided to have an adult conversation about movies as opposed to screaming the words awesome at the crowd over and over again.
Our intrepid reporter Alasdair described the experience:
Coppola treated the panel like he was a visiting film professor doing a guest lecture. He also up front said, 'You can ask me about any of my movies,' because he's a BAMF and he don't give a shit talking about The Godfather".
So in fairness, we decided to to include the panel as well, which you can watch below.
Unfortunately Twixt itself looks like those 90s black and white greetings cards where only the rose is red. But, we do love the odd wordplay and rhythm that is Kilmer's line delivery. Here's the full synopsis of the movie:
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He's unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
