What Is Twisters About?

A star-studded remake of Twister, a 1996 blockbuster, Twisters follows a group of weather researchers who find themselves at the mercy of lethal storms. The original film was a box office hit, going on to receive Oscar nominations for its visual effects and sound design. While it’s inspired by the 1996 film, however, Twisters won’t return to the plot and characters from Twister; instead, it will stand alone as a modern-day story – one which highlights the terrifying effects of climate change. 

Daisy Edgar-Jones leads the cast of Twisters, starring as NYC-based researcher Kate Cooper. According to the film’s official synopsis, Kate is ‘a former storm chaser haunted by a devastating encounter with a tornado during her college years who now studies storm patterns on screens safely in New York City.’

However, Kate is soon lured back into danger after her friend Javi convinces her ‘to test a groundbreaking new tracking system,’ the synopsis continues. ‘There, she crosses paths with Tyler Owens, the charming and reckless social-media superstar who thrives on posting his storm-chasing adventures with his raucous crew, the more dangerous the better.

‘As terrifying phenomena never seen before are unleashed, Kate, Tyler and their competing teams find themselves squarely in the paths of multiple storm systems converging over central Oklahoma in the fight of their lives.’
