Any trailer that features Tom Waits narration can’t be all bad, but we all have the right to be less than sure about Twixt, the new and seemingly semi-autobiographical vampire detective story (?!) from American icon Francis Ford Coppola. On one hand, his last movie, Tetro, was a surprise return to form and almost certainly his best in decades. On the other hand, this trailer much more strongly evokes the wacky hijinx of the not-so-great Youth Without Youth, only with Val Kilmer taking the bullet this time around instead of Tim Roth. (One for the plus column, though: Elle Fanning as some sort of ghoulie.) Judge for yourself – the three-and-a-half minute trailer is below, and the movie premieres at TIFF this fall.
