Apocalypse Now Final Cut (2019)


Introduction

In April 2019, Coppola showed Apocalypse Now Final Cut for the 40th anniversary screening at the Tribeca Film Festival.

This new version, of the original Apocalypse Now, has a runtime of three hours and two minutes, with Coppola having cut 20 minutes of the added material from “Apocalypse Now Redux“.

It is also the first time the film has been restored from the original camera negative at 4K; previous transfers were made from an IP.
