Metropolis is a sci-fi masterpiece, and seriously one of the most influential films of all time. I love this movie, and I love what it's done for cinema. It inspired the imagination of people and got them thinking outside of the box. Metropolis is a silent film made in 1927, and the Fritz Lang classic was recently fully restored by Kino Int. with 25 minuted of previously lost footage.
The new 147 minute cut of the film will be released in theaters this summer in select theaters before it comes out on Blu-Ray in November of this year. Make sure to visit the official website for more information on the restoration of the film.
The HD trailer that Kino has put together for the film is fantastic. If you haven't seen this classic movie yet, I highly suggest you watch it. If you have seen it, watching this new cut of them film will be like watching it for the first time.
The most influential of all silent films — and a blueprint for future classics like Blade Runner and The Matrix — Fritz Lang’s visionary Metropolis can finally be seen as intended, with 25 minutes of newly—discovered footage and Gottfried Huppertz’s magnificent original score. The addition of this astounding new material (1,257 shots, including entire new sequences), carefully restored and edited into the 2002 restoration, results in the closest rendition ever seen since the film’s 1927 Berlin premiere.
