Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis Screened to Studios Without Interest: 'It's So Not Good'

Francis Ford Coppola screened his latest film to major studio heads, hoping for mainstream distribution and a big marketing campaign. Reactions were not great.
The film is a complex love story with deep philosophical themes, but distributors are skeptical about its commercial potential and market positioning.
Coppola's recent films have been non-commercial and experimental, leaving distributors unsure about how to handle his latest project, Megalopolis .


being considered ‘too risky’ for film studios in 2024 is a veritable badge of honor in this culture

True! Coppola is self-funding movies that he believes in, with A-list stars. He made Godfather and Apocalypse Now, he’s got nothing to prove.

“It’s so not good, and it was so sad watching it. … This is not how Coppola should end his directing career.”

No, that’s exactly what he should be doing with his experience and resources.

Producers just bitter they’re not attached to the project.

That the execs are thinking it doesn’t have commercial appeal is almost a guarantee that it’ll be received as great - these are the same execs that think all the public wants are sequels, prequels, and lazy 80s IP nostalgia cash-ins.
