New Francis Ford Coppola Edit of The Godfather: Part III Heading to Theaters

"The Godfather: Part III is considered by many, including a movie critic by the name of Roger Ebert at the time of release, to be the worst of the three Godfather movies. But now, it's getting re-edited by director Francis Ford Coppola himself for a theatrical release later this year. So... does that mean it'll be good now?

Coppola is working to restore and re-edit Part III. The version is dubbed Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The death of Michael Corleone, named after the filmmaker's co-screenwriter, author Mario Puzo, who penned the source material. It promises to achieve Coppola and Puzo's "original vision for the finale, which has been meticulously restored for the finest presentation of the Corleone saga’s last chapter," according to a press release.

Paramount Pictures plans to release this Coppola cut in theaters this December, followed by an at-home release.

"Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The death of Michael Corleone is an acknowledgment of Mario’s and my preferred title and our original intentions for what became The Godfather: Part III,” Coppola said in a statement. “For this version of the finale, I created a new beginning and ending, and rearranged some scenes, shots, and music cues. With these changes and the restored footage and sound, to me, it is a more appropriate conclusion to The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II and I’m thankful to Jim Gianopulos and Paramount for allowing me to revisit it."

Released in 1990, the crime drama starred Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia, Talia Shire, and Sofia Coppola.

American Zoetrope, Coppola's production company, used a 4K scan of the original negative of the film for a frame-by-frame restoration of both the theatrical version of Part III and the new cut. The process lasted more than six months. Halfway through the project, Paramount notes work had to shift to remote locations in the San Francisco Bay area and Los Angeles as the pandemic spread to the U.S.

“Mr. Coppola oversaw every aspect of the restoration while working on the new edit, ensuring that the film not only looks and sounds pristine, but also meets his personal standards and directorial vision,” Andrea Kalas, senior vice president of Paramount Archives, said in a statement.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Mario Puzo was working on the re-edit with Francis Ford Coppola. Puzo died in 1999. "

I heard it was so fu*king bad that I never wanted to taint the original two films by watching it so I get what he's saying, he's obviously kidding. Maybe now it'll be worth watching and maybe after that I'll finally watch the original part 3 to see it it's as bad as people say.

the godfather 3 is like the office after season 4-5

it has its moment, but the overall battle has already been won, so there isn't much emotional connection left , there is a story there still and its still a tragedy but its not like an uphill battle.....

seeing michael patch things up with kay adams seems realistic because they were bound to be in each others lives for the sake of the children, they were bound to start talking to each other again at some point ...maybe it comes with time..

but seeing him shun her, for aborting his baby, which in the catholic world is literally seen as destroying life ...thats the biggest sin you can possibly do..to someone in that world...and it was augmente because it was a son....and the apparent succesor to michael......that was more dramatic and entertaining to me ..seeing him hate kay for the rest of his life....but that didn't happen

my favourite character was tom hagen , so maybe i am biased because there no mention of him in godfather 3, it was a*sumed that he already died,

with that being said, it wasn't nearily as bad as peolple make it out to be, its just the expectations were so high

The last half of Godfather 3 is good as hell.

The first half is weird because its too hard to figure out what the hell is happening.

First time I saw those twin a*sassins get k*lled by that master a*sassin at the theater, I was like "Oh sh*t..."

WInona Ryder was supposed to play Mary. She would've been a lot better. Also they should've paid Duvall what he wanted to come back. Those two changes and it's a much better movie.

I don't see how Coppola is gonna make this movie better with the changes he's talking about.

Yeah she would've been much better. Sofia Coppola had a lot of trouble with her lines. Apparently they dubbed a lot of them over in post production.
