Word from the Warfront: Coppola Releasing New "Final Cut" of Apocalypse Now

Are you ready for even more (or maybe less) horror in Vietnam?

Tribeca confirmed today that they will be screening what is being titled as Apocalypse Now: Final Cut in New York on April 28, what is to be the 40th anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola's seminal war drama's original release. Tribeca's site describes this Final Cut a la Blade Runner as "a new, never-before-seen restored version of the film... remastered from the original negative in 4K ultra HD". Steven Soderbergh will also be present to discuss the massive undertaking that was re-editing and restoring this film to its original glory, and perhaps (fingers crossed!) giving more details on an official 4K UHD bluray release. 

No other details are know as to what will be added or taken away from this so-called Final Cut in comparison to 2001's Apocalypse Now Redux. Whether or not the infamous plantation sequence will remain or we'll get to see more of Colonel Kurtz's damaged psychotic ramblings (more Marlon Brando is always a good thing, right?) remains to be seen. All will surely be revealed at its official screening later this month.
