The group then moves out of the truck and runs for their survival amid a tornado storm. We then meet Tyler who calls himself the ‘tornado wrangler’ as he loves chasing storms. This is followed by a series of shots from the film that showcase the tornadoes and the destruction they cause.

At one point, the characters witness two tornadoes at once. The trailer concludes with more montage shots and one person asking, ‘Was that it?’ To which Tyler answers, ‘Nope.’ The video concludes with two people being snatched away by the storm.

Fans can rest assured that there will be plenty of those in the film. The disaster genre has seen a variety of films over the years with different storylines. While most of them deal with things that are over the top and made up, Twisters is a bit different than the rest.

The United States of America witnesses more tornadoes than any other country on this planet. This is mainly due to the prairie land that elevates the revolving bags of air. This makes tornadoes a frequent occurrence for the people of the US. Hence, a film on this subject is closer to them than a person from any other country. That is where a film like Twisters comes into play as they tap into that feeling of dread and the requirement of basements.

We can expect a heavy dose of goosebumps-inducing sequences involving the storms as well as people chasing them. Apart from that, maybe a touch of human stories can be also shown. Since such storms only leave a trail of destruction, a glimpse into the aftermath through a more realistic lens can appear in the film.

But it’s a full-on commercial film so we should stick to high-octane sequences only. No one has forgotten the cow flying in the air scene from Twister. Fans of that film will expect that kind of money shots in the sequel as well. Irrespective of content, the trailer guarantees that the film is going to be a roller coaster ride and a piece of engaging storytelling.

Now, fans are only waiting for the release date so that they can get to witness the story unfold on the big screen. Films in the disaster genre expect you to suspend that idea of disbelief a bit more.
