Director Francis Ford Coppola has made the ultimate version of his classic 1979 Vietnam War drama Apocalypse Now. This version of the movie is called Apocalypse Now: Final Cut and today we have the first trailer for you.
This is Coppola’s favorite and approved version of the movie and it is getting a 4K release that will also appear in the theaters. This version of the movie is 183 minutes long and I can’t wait to watch it. I love this movie and I’m interested to see how this final cut will be. When talking about the movie, Coppola says:
“It’s my favorite version because I feel the first one we released was clipped too short and REDUX is a little too long. This one is ‘just right.'”
Coppola’s “visually dazzling masterpiece is a surreal, hallucinatory, epic tragedy about the horror of the Vietnam War. A U.S. Army Intelligence officer is sent on a bizarre river journey deep into the jungle to assassinate Colonel Kurtz, a renegade Green Beret who uses primitive tribesmen to wage his own war.”
The movie stars Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Dennis Hopper, Laurence Fishburne, and Harrison Ford.
Lionsgate will release the Final Cut in select theaters for only two nights only: August 15th and August 18th. It will later be released on VOD and 4K Blu-ray.
