Finally, re-mastered versions of Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece films ‘The Godfather,’ ‘The Godfather, Part II,’ and, um, ‘The Godfather, Part III,’ (well, two out of three ain’t bad,) are being released on DVD. Before you race out to get in line to buy them, you should know that, right now, the discs are only coming out in England.
The Digital Bits, who first uncovered this news, is saying that while an announcement hasn’t been made for a US release, no doubt, one will be forthcoming. The collection will contain the films, all the features from the previous boxed set as well as almost 75 minutes of additional features, including ones on the restoration and the reception of the film when originally released.
Paramount is one of the studios who hasn’t announced any Blu-Ray discs for release yet, so, could ‘The Godfather’ be the first announcement?
