Francis Ford Coppola's The Cotton Club Encore -- 12/10/19






In select theaters on October 11 and will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital on December 10

In this lavish, 1930s-era drama, Harlem’s legendary Cotton Club becomes a hotbed of passion and violence as the lives and loves of entertainers and gangsters collide. Now, Francis Ford Coppola’s extraordinary film is brought to vivid new life in The Cotton Club Encore. Featuring never-before-seen scenes and musical sequences that deepen and enrich the storylines, this remastered and beautifully restored version represents Coppola’s fully realized vision of The Cotton Club.
“I always felt that the movie got cut down; there was 25 or 30 minutes taken out and a lot of the black story got cut out. I found the Betamax of the original cut. I don’t think in the release version of The Cotton Club you really understand what’s happening between the black folks and the white folks and the gangsters. You don’t quite get it because it’s been so truncated,” the director told Deadline. “To my horror, the 25-30 minutes that was taken out, no one knew where the negative was. It didn’t exist anymore. We searched and searched and finally found a good enough print. If you have a good print you can copy a good print and then, with a lot of expensive CG, you could bring it up.”

I never really dug this movie. The stories about the making of it seemed a lot more interesting than the movie itself.

Hopefully, this new cut won't be as dismal as his AN Final Cut...

I've never seen this film. Hoping the home video version gets a lot of featurettes and a commentary. It's only been on DVD to this point, correct (and bare bones)?

I am amazed with your amazement.

I saw it several times back in the day and thought it to be one of his best.
But it WAS a long time ago.
