Trailer and new featurette for ‘Mario Puzo’s The Godfather: Coda – The Death Of Michael Corleone’

December cannot come soon enough, and here’s a little teaser for something we’re all looking forward to – Mario Puzo’s The Godfather: Coda – The Death of Michael Corleone, Francis Ford Coppola’s re-edit of The Godfather: Part III. This one is released in select cinemas on 5th and 6th December before hitting the home formats on 8th December. The cast includes Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia, Franc D’Ambrosio, Bridget Fonda, George Hamilton, Joe Mantegna, Talia Shire, Eli Wallach, Sofia Coppola and Raf Vallone.

The original second sequel in the franchise has been re-edited with restored picture and sound.

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Godfather: Part III, director/screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola brings a definitive new edit and restoration of the final film in his epic Godfather trilogy—Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), now in his 60s, seeks to free his family from crime and find a suitable successor to his empire. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)… but he may also be the spark that turns Michael’s hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. The film’s meticulously restored picture and sound, under the supervision of American Zoetrope and Paramount Pictures, includes a new beginning and ending, as well as changes to scenes, shots, and music cues. The resulting project reflects author Mario Puzo and Coppola’s original intentions of The Godfather: Part III, and delivers, in the words of Coppola, “a more appropriate conclusion to The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II.”

You can check out the brand new trailer and featurette, where co-writer and director Coppola explains what he set out to achieve with the new version, below.
