TWISTERS Movie Trailer Premieres During Superbowl

The trailer for the new Hollywood flick TWISTERS, the sequel to the 1990s movie TWISTER which starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt, premiered during the Superbowl on Sunday night. Of course, the storm chasing community and #WxTwitter weighed in.

I have to get something off my chest up front...

Look, ya don't look cool lamenting a Hollywood flick and it's scientific shortcomings - just go buy some popcorn and be glad they're making another damn movie about tornadoes.

Your storm chasing ability, or resume are not improved by how loudly and publicly you decry the scientific inaccuracies of something we're all just spending 20 bucks on for a couple hours of entertainment. That's something that's always bugged me about the "Twister is so FAKE" schtick. Okay, and it's also a really entertaining movie about chasing tornadoes, which was always the intention. It's not a National Geographic documentary - it's Hollywood thrill!

I can't wait to spend a hot July day inside an air conditioned theater with an ice cold fountain coke and the movie TWISTERS.
