I saw 3 maybe around when it came out and thought it all sucked. Haven’t seen since. I wouldn’t even know differences. But I’ll get this and add to Coppola Restoration blus, but watch the HBO Godfather Epic I’ve had for past 5 years on my dvr, then see new cut of 3...

I can't believe we're not getting this in 4K. I'm holding off just in case a UHD/4K version is released digitally.

Exactly. And Paramount's been releasing them, so I'm holding off until then. A trilogy release is inevitable at this point, now that they've done this new cut.

Meh. It’s only $14 and change for the Blu-ray. I still pre-ordered. Interested enough to see how different this cut of the film is.

A shorter run time than the original version. That's got to be a plus.

Kinda would have liked a cheap DVD to slip into my Coppola restoration DVD set I found for $3 at the thrift store. Maybe down the road.

Do you really want to name your movie after this though?



That death felt very Monty Python at the time.

Maybe because they removed Sofia Coppola's part.

Google it big boy.

Alas....does anyone think any kind of new cut will improve this movie on any level? Me neither.

Has the Theatrical version ever been released on video? I seem to recall even the very first VHS edition was a Director's Cut with 9 minutes of extra footage and I'm guessing some other tweaks and changes.

It’s not a terrible movie, never has been, but it is admittedly problematic. Can’t hurt to give it another try.

Oh...it's pretty terrible. And the last 30 minutes are excruciating.

I don't think anything can fix this movie.

CGI Deep fake Robert Duvall for George Hamilton and Winona Ryder for Sophia Coppola, maybe?

Yep, I’ll watch this new cut at some point, but I won’t be buying this until this one and the first two hit 4k.

No, the theatrical cut was never released to home video. The movie had a hard Christmas release date and Coppola was quite vocal about the fact that he hadn't finished editing it. The theatrical cut was rushed to get something onto screens for the holiday box office and for awards consideration. Coppola continued to edit while it played in theaters. The "Director's Cut" premiered on video and Coppola insisted that it was the only finished version of the movie. In his mind, the theatrical cut was an incomplete rough cut.

Im one of the very few people who like part 3 more then 2 and Im really looking forward to this. I enjoyed the new cut of the Cotton Club so hopefully this will be just as good .

I don't hate 3, but I would not go that far...or even close to that far.
