Must Watch: Brand New Trailer for 'The Complete Metropolis'
A few months ago, we brought you word that a full restored version of Fritz Lang's 1927 sci-fi masterpiece Metropolis would actually be hitting theaters this summer before arriving on glorious Blu-Ray at the end of the year. In honor of this restored re-released, Kino Int. has put together a trailer for what they're calling The Complete Metropolis, a new 147-minute version of the movie. There's nothing like seeing a trailer in high def for a movie from 1927 that just so happens to be one of the greatest movies of all-time. I encourage anyone, even those who haven't seen Metropolis, to watch this trailer and see the movie itself this summer.

For more info on The Complete Metropolis, visit the official website at: kino.com/metropolis. There they have info on the restored cut and the 25 minutes of footage that was added. You can also find out info about which theaters it will be playing in. As of this moment, not too many are listed outside of New York and Los Angeles, but more will be added as time goes on. I should also point out the fantastic series of articles on CHUD (also read Part 2) about the "long road to Metropolis" and this re-release. The Complete Metropolis hits theaters on May 7th and will continue to show "in all major markets throughout the US and Canada."
