HOT 4K NEWS
CELEBRATE the 40th Anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola’s visionary Vietnam War epic with the newly restored "Apocalypse Now Final Cut," which arrives on 4K Ultra HD 4-disc Combo Pack (4K disc, plus three Blu-ray discs and Digital copy) for the first time ever August 27 from Lionsgate.
Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, "Apocalypse Now Final Cut" is Coppola’s most realized version of the film with a running time of 183 minutes, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards®, won three Golden Globes® (Best Original Score, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture, 1980), and is one of AFI’s top 100 films.
Starring Academy Award winner Marlon Brando (1972, Best Actor, The Godfather), Academy Award winner Robert Duvall (1983, Best Actor, Tender Mercies), Golden Globe winner Martin Sheen (2001, Best Actor – TV Series, “The West Wing”), Academy Award nominee Dennis Hopper (1986, Best Supporting Actor, Hoosiers), Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne (1993, Best Actor, What’s Love Got to Do with It), and Academy Award nominee Harrison Ford (1985, Best Actor, Witness), experience Coppola’s spectacular cinematic masterpiece the way it was intended.
Francis Ford Coppola’s stunning vision of “The Heart of Darkness” in all of us remains a classic and compelling Vietnam War epic. Martin Sheen stars as Army Captain Willard, a troubled man sent on a dangerous and mesmerizing odyssey into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade American colonel named Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost.
In addition to the restoration, this 4-disc "Apocalypse Now Final Cut" anniversary set also includes the film’s Theatrical Cut and Extended Cut (Redux), as well as the acclaimed Hearts of Darkness documentary.
Loaded with hours of in-depth special features, the set will also feature the fascinating Tribeca Film Festival Q&A with Coppola and the prolific Steven Soderbergh (Sex, Lies, and Videotape), which has not been seen or heard outside of the festival until now, and newly discovered behind-the-scenes footage.
