The Godfather Trilogy - New Release Pending!
« on: January 31, 2022, 01:37:05 am »
Afternoon All,

Just been trawling the BBFC's website, and noted that The Godfather Trilogy has been reclassified as a 15 certificate. Now, let me elaborate.

1 - Originally, Godfather and Godfather Part II, have always been 18 certificates. Both films have now been reclassified to 15's, but are still uncut and uncensored.

2 - The reason for the classification change, is purely down to the BBFC deciding that a) the content is acceptable, in comparison with most average 15-rated movies and DVD's, and b) the fact that the violence is set in a historical context, rather than a fantastical one. Hence, it was decided that all 3 movies could now be accepted in the 15 certificate category.

Now for the news: The Godfather Trilogy is being re-released onto DVD and, for the first time, also onto Blu-Ray DVD too! :clap:

The trilogy has been restored and remastered, via a 4k Digital Restoration process, to improve the picture and sound on all 3 movies. However, both 1 and 2 will still not look as great as some modern movies, due to the way they were filmed, and the inherent nature in which the negatives have been used, and reused since their creation. But, the picture is supposed to be absolutely stunning and improves on the previous DVD release.

With the Trilogy, there will be an all-new 84-minute documentary about the history of the movie, the novel, the death of writer Mario Puzo, and the restoration of the movie, as well as a look at the recent novelised sequel.

Sadly, there is no official release date yet, from Paramount, though sometime in mid-to-late May or early June 2008 appears to be the unofficial word on the street, and there will NOT be any extra footage or altering of the films contents either! SO, if you have the DVD boxed set from recent years, then other than the new documentary and better picture/sound, there should be no other differences in the content.

Nor is there news on when or if the "Godfather Epic" (a near-10-hour reorganisation of all three movies, into one, gigantic, chronological epic masterpiece, showing the life of the Corleone family from birth to death) will ever get released onto DVD. Though a UK and US VHS boxed set of this did come out, it's never been re-released since the early 1990's, and is much sought-after! :(

There is also a rumour that the original Godfather movie, will also be released to selected cinemas, for a short cinematic outing, in the newly-remastered and restored print that is coming to DVD!

Lastly. the release has been retitled as "The Godfather: The Coppola Restoration", but is listed on most sites as "The Godfather Trilogy: Remastered". See this link for a picture and some info.
