Agree this looks to more of a remake but no matter.

This look like it will be a fun time and also agree it should have kicked off May or Memorial Day weekend.

And again agree I had a blast with the first one in the theaters, it was a great experience. We went on a whim not expecting anything and it turned out to be fantastic.

The original Twister had a great song based soundtrack that I probably know better than the movie. It had some of my favorite artists at the time (Van Halen, Tori Amos, Lisa Loeb, Belly, Soul Asylum, Buckingham/Nicks) and others that I also enjoyed. That CD got a lot of play by me. I doubt this one will have anything like that. Do movies these days even have soundtracks like that they put out anymore?

Given how poorly The Fall Guy performed on traditionally one of the biggest weekends of the year, without any real competition, I bet they are.

Humans Being? Probably my favorite Hagar-era VH tune and they placed it perfectly in the movie.

It says at the end of the trailer there will be a soundtrack. The song in the trailer is called "Ain't no love in Oklahoma" by Luke Combs which is supposed to be released May 16th.

This movie feels like a relic of the '90s. Which makes sense.

The original is still great fun and hasn't aged that bad. This still looks like a pitiful remake. Going from Van Halen to a country song is all kinds of

I hope the soundtrack is a mix of Rock and Country songs.

Maybe it's showing my age or whatever, but while the original was a summer classic when I was a teenager, when I saw the new trailer for this my first thought was, gosh, real people get their lives ruined by tornadoes, do we really need a movie about it? What an old man thought.

Unfortunately if you go down that rabbit hole you can say that about a lot of movies and movie types.

I haven't gotten to the point where I think that way about disaster movies but that's the main reason I can't watch some horror/thrillers anymore. Over the top slashers are fine but the ones more rooted in reality are films I tend to avoid these days.

This heightens the tension for me where slashers are closer to comedies because of their absurdity.

Well, I do like the Shania Twain song on the Twister soundtrack, so at least they got her back. I'm guessing most of these people are country artists, but don't recognize most.

I heard the premiere of the Luke Combs song... sounds good. And yes, the first 10 names are all current country artists. Several others too that I recognize.

I don't mind the heavy country influence but do hope there's some rock songs on it. Both genres are a part of the Soundtrack of Oklahoma. I'm likely buying this album no matter what. "Ain't No Love in Oklahoma" is pretty good. I really do miss the days of these tie-in soundtracks to summer movies and it's neat to see them make a comeback.

Pre-order tickets are available now.

I noticed there are 2 Early screenings. One just a regular premium early screening on Wednesday the 17th. The other is an IMAX with a Live pre-show Q&A with the cast. I went with that one now. I'm always for more value for your time.

Saw the trailer during the basketball game last night. Looks great! I miss the Discovery show Storm Chasers.

This is the one movie this summer I'll likely pay full price to see. My closest theater has an early screening on their Large Format screen so I might go to that.

They are not only country artists, they are pretty much the top country artists of the industry. I don't know how the movie will be or how much music will actually feature, but this will definitely give it appeal to Middle America.

Well, Hit Man takes place in New Orleans and tornadoes can bring heavy rain like conditions, so I guess he technically will be in swampy conditions in both movies...

This looks okay but I probably won’t see it theatrically.
