The first official trailer for Francis Ford Coppola‘s next film Tetro has made its way onto the YouTube this past weekend. Many of you will be surprised to see that it is in black and white (for the most part). Alright, maybe you aren’t surprised — the black and white thing isn’t what is interesting. Hollywood’s been making black and whites for a while now.

What is interesting about the trailer below is that unlike Coppola’s last film Youth Without Youth, this film appears to have some good energy to it. It stars Alden Ehrenreich as Bennie, a soldier who has traveled to Buenos Aires to find his long-lost brother Tetro, played by Vincent Gallo. A once promising writer, Tetro now lives as a shadow of his former self, living with an unsuspecting girlfriend (Maribel Verdú) and writing a play that might help uncover his family’s past.

Check out the first trailer below. Tetro is scheduled to release sometime in 2009, with no hard release date yet. Coppola declined a gala screening at this month’s Cannes Film Festival saying, “this is an independent film, and I felt that being invited for a non-competition gala screening wasn’t true to the personal and independent nature of this.”
