"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in."
Get ready to buy the Godfather saga once again. After mammoth VHS sets, the DVD collection and multiple Blu-ray releases, the entire trilogy has been meticulously restored once again in 4K, just in time for the first film's 50th anniversary.
Francis Ford Coppola has spent much of the last decade looking back. He turned out new director's cuts of The Cotton Club, Dementia 13 and Apocalypse Now. And in 2020 he turned his eye to The Godfather Part III, which was never in the same league with the first two films in the series. Now the full trilogy will be released yet again, this time in Ultra HD with a slew of bonus features. The extras include a new introduction by Coppola, a featurette on the preservation process, never-before-scene 8mm footage from the production, and all the previously released extras. Both versions of the final film - The Godfather Part III and The Death of Michael Corleone - are also included. Superfans can nab a limited collector's edition, which features everything mentioned above, as well as a hardcover book with archival photos from all three films.
The Godfather Trilogy arrives on 4K Ultra HD on March 22.
