Francis Ford Coppola's passion project, Megalopolis finally has a release date. The film will release in theatres and on IMAX screens in the US and Canada on September 27. It premiered at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival and competed for the prestigious Palme d'Or award.

Megalopolis stars Adam Driver, Nathalie Emmanuel, Shia LaBeouf, Grace VanderWaal, and Zendaya. The film revolves around an architect (Driver) looking to build a retro-futuristic version of New York City in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Coppola takes inspiration from HG Wells' speculative science-fiction literature, the September 11 attacks, Roman history, and several other events for the film.

Earlier this year, Coppola shared on Instagram a video that gives a first-look at Driver's character and wrote, "Megalopolis has always been a film dedicated to my dear wife Eleanor."

Coppola and Michael Bederman produced the science-fiction drama, which marks the Godfather filmmaker's comeback after 2011's Twixt.
