Screenings on Tuesday 13 August will also feature a Q&A afterwards between Francis Ford Coppola and director, Steven Soderbergh, recorded from Tribeca Film Festival in April, where they reflect on the film’s legacy in light of the 40th Anniversary, as well as the restoration process.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Oscar-winning Vietnam cult war epic, Studiocanal will release in cinemas a special, never-before-seen cut restored with breathtaking realism by Coppola himself to the highest and finest audio and visual standards, for a truly visceral cinema experience.
Forty years after its original release, audiences will get the chance to experience Apocalypse Now Final Cut, a never-before-seen and newly restored cut of Coppola’s spectacular cinematic masterpiece in a way which the director believes “looks better than it has ever looked and sounds better than it has ever sounded”. STUDIOCANAL and Coppola are “thrilled beyond measure to present the best version of the film to the world”
Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, Apocalypse Now Final Cut is Coppola’s most realized version of his multi-awarded classic -a haunting journey into madness that fascinated generations of movie lovers.
