Coppola strikes deal with Lionsgate, promises “Apocalypse Now” and “Conversation” Blu-rays


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Buried in today’s news release that Lionsgate entered a home-video distribution agreement with American Zoetrope — essentially giving them access to Francis Ford Coppola’s prestigious library of films — is the revelation that “Apocalypse Now” is making its way to Blu-ray and will be on shelves Oct. 19.

“With their expertise in the home entertainment marketplace, we consider Lionsgate to be the perfect partner to distribute some of my most enduring films,” said Coppola. “We are excited to be collaborating with them and hope to continue to enthrall our existing fans while also reaching a whole new audience for these films by presenting them in the highest quality format available along with exceptional in-depth special features.”

The partnership begins with the release of Coppola’s most recent release, “Tetro.” But beyond that, the studio already has announced plans to package and rerelease updated versions of “Apocalypse” and “The Conversation,” with Gene Hackman.

With new transfers supervised directly by Coppola, Apocalypse Now will premiere on Blu-ray in two deluxe editions: the 2-Film Set and the 3-disc Full Disclosure Edition.

The 2-Film Set will include both Apocalypse Now – The 1979 Cut and Apocalypse Now Redux, and will also include over nine hours of special features. The Full Disclosure Edition will include the seminal making-of documentary Hearts of Darkness, a 48-page collectible booklet and storyboard, photo and marketing archives.

As for “The Conversation,” another Coppola masterpiece, it won the 1974 Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was selected in 1995 for preservation in the Library of Congress by the U.S. National Film Registry for its cultural significance. It currently is not available on Blu-ray, and will be coveted by true collectors worldwide.
