>Adam Driver’s first day on set was particularly memorable, a source suggests. One aspect of the story involves Driver’s character’s body fusing with some futuristic organic material. Rather than using digital techniques, Coppola wanted to achieve the effect through old-school methods, using projectors and mirrors, much as he had done on Dracula, 30 years earlier. “That’s great, except nobody can move,” says the crew member. “So they basically strapped Adam Driver into a chair for six hours, and they literally took a $100 projector and projected an image on the side of his head. I’m all for experimentation, but this is really what you want to do the first day with your $10m actor?” The effect would have been quick and easy to create digitally, they say. “So he [Coppola] spends literally half of a day on what could have been done in 10 minutes.”

Yes. I'm seeing kino incoming:

    >Several sources also felt that Coppola could be “old school” in his behaviour around women. He allegedly pulled women to sit on his lap, for example. And during one bacchanalian nightclub scene being shot for the film, witnesses say, Coppola came on to the set and tried to kiss some of the topless and scantily clad female extras. He apparently claimed he was “trying to get them in the mood”.

        The source article has been linked, dummy.

        https://www.worldofreel.com/blog/2024/5/14/francis-ford-coppola-metooed-report-claims-on-set-firings-marijuana-inappropriate-old-school-behavior

        That interview is one of the most depressing and embarrassing things I've read in recent memory:
        >I think Coppola still lives in this world where, as an auteur, you’re the only one who knows what’s happening, and everybody else is there just to do what he asks them to do.
        That's what a film director is about you twat.
        >This sounds crazy to say, but there were times when we were all standing around going: ‘Has this guy ever made a movie before?’
        Some probably 30-something year-old saying this about Coppola of all people.

        This is representative of the majority of "film-professionals" nowadays, most likely.

        If anyone's making shit up, it's the alleged crew member from the article.

      Absolutely based. If more people acted like him on set we would be getting better movies. All the classics were fueled off this behavior.

      Notice how they don't mention how those "topless and scantily clad female extras" felt about it.

    Movie looks interesting. Seems to be shitting on modern society and how it's devolved into meaninglessness, hedonism and superficiality, which is always welcome. I would hate it to be another "Drumpf bad" vehicle though, and some of the "Populist Shia" shots give me that vibe.

    Pretty disingenuous to say that, there are zero cgi effects that are completed in 10 minutes.

      I wouldn't be surprised if this "anonymous crew member source" was just some journalist sent to discredit Coppola for a bit of cash.

    Trailer looked quite messy, gave me no real idea what the movie is about other than it's New York, some weird political movement going on with some apocalyptic event occurring. Is this another Southland Tales? And despite the title, the city really doesn't look that mega, you say Megaopolis and I think of Coruscant or L.A. in Blade Runner or Mars City in Cowboy Bebop, this looks like just barely futuristic New York.

    Also never forget that Coppola tried to cover up for Victor Salva and blacklisted the kid actors who spoke up against that fat pedo.

      That's on you, mate. The trailer is quite clear (though the audio mixing is abysmal).

      Yeah, it’s a teaser. People have spent years complaining about trailers giving away too much, and this is the first one released, for a highly secretive project.

      It's spoopy ngl that Coppola's wife suddenly dies right before his big Cannes premiere, and then every MSM outlet is warning of a massive MeToo director scandal that will quake the festival. Coppola's enemies have it in for him.
      There's a chance how that neither Apple and Amazon purchase his movie. If so he will have to self distribute it and fight MeToo articles.
