"I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse." Paramount Pictures has unveiled an official trailer for the 50th Anniversary 4K re-release of the seminal gangster movie The Godfather, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and first released in 1972. There's nothing like this movie! In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Coppola’s Academy Award-winning masterwork The Godfather, Paramount Pictures announced that the film will have a limited theatrical release in Dolby Vision beginning February 25th, 2022 exclusively in Dolby Cinema at AMC Theatres in the U.S., as well as in international territories around the world. All three films in the epic trilogy have been meticulously restored under the direction of Coppola and will be made available on 4K Ultra HD for the first time ever this March. This searing and brilliant masterpiece garnered ten Academy Award nominations, and won three, including Best Picture. The film's ensemble cast includes Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, John Cazale, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Sterling Hayden, Richard Conte, Talia Shire, and Al Lettieri. It's an all-timer epic cinema classic in every way.
Here's the new 50th Anniversary re-release of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, from YouTube:
"I am very proud of The Godfather, which certainly defined the first third of my creative life," said Francis Ford Coppola. "With this 50th anniversary tribute, I'm especially proud Mario Puzo's The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone is included, as it captures Mario and my original vision in definitively concluding our epic trilogy. It’s also gratifying to celebrate this milestone with Paramount alongside the wonderful fans who’ve loved it for decades, younger generations who still find it relevant today, and those who will discover it for the first time."
No movie changed Hollywood more than The Godfather. From the bestselling novel by Mario Puzo to box-office blockbuster, its influential legacy endures to this day. Starring Marlon Brando in his Oscar-winning performance as the patriarch of the Corleone family, this first installment in the three-movie saga paints a dramatic portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and near fall from power in America. Balanced between the Corleone's commitment to family as well as the ugly crime business in which they are engaged, it features career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan, Talia Shire, Diane Keaton and Robert Duvall. The Godfather is written and directed by American filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, adapted from Mario Puzo's novel who also co-wrote the screenplay. The film first opened in theaters in 1972. Paramount Pictures will debut Coppola's The Godfather 50th Anniversary re-release in select US theaters on February 25th, 2022, then on Blu-ray / VOD on March 22nd coming soon. Who loves this movie?
