Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

A never-before-seen and newly restored cut of Francis Ford Coppola’s spectacular cinematic masterpiece in a way which the director believes “looks better than it has ever looked and sounds better than it has ever sounded”.

Apocalypse Now was nominated for 8 Academy Awards® (including Best Picture) and won 2 Academy Award® for Best Cinematography and Best Sound, 2 BAFTAs for Best Direction and Best Supporting Actor and the Palme d’Or in Cannes. Starring Academy Award® winner Marlon Brando (1972, Best Actor, The Godfather), Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall (1983, Best Actor, Tender Mercies), Golden Globe® winner Martin Sheen (2001, Best Actor – TV Series, “The West Wing”), Academy Award® nominee Dennis Hopper (1986, Best Supporting Actor, Hoosiers), Academy Award® nominee Laurence Fishburne (1993, Best Actor, What’s Love Got to Do with It), and Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford (1985, Best Actor, Witness), the film follows Army Captain Willard (Martin Sheen), a troubled man sent on a dangerous and mesmerizing odyssey into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade American colonel named Kurtz (Marlon Brando), who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost.

The best visual and sound technologies have been used to present Coppola’s true vision of the film: one that delivers deep, visceral visual and auditory impact. “The audience will be able to see, hear and feel this film how I always hoped it could be—from the first ‘bang’ to the final whimper” said the film-maker.  All  three versions of this film are available on this release including Apocalypse Now: The Final Cut, Apocalypse Now: Theatrical Cut, and Apocalypse Now Redux Extended Cut.

Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, Apocalypse Now Final Cut is Coppola’s most complete version of his multi-awarded classic. This is the first time the original negative has ever been scanned and over 11 months and 2,700 hours were spent on cleaning and restoring the film’s 300,173 frames.  Brought to life through ultra-vivid picture quality with Dolby Vision®, delivering spectacular colours never before seen on a screen, with highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. It has also been mixed in Dolby Atmos® to offer a truly immersive sound experience and it has been enhanced Meyer Sound Laboratories’ newly developed Sensual Sound™, a technology engineered to output audio below the limits of human hearing.

Apocalypse now Final Cut 4K

This is the crispiest looking version of the film I’ve seen so far. Some bits are grainy, but what do you expect from a film this old? However it looks amazing and details pop out on the screen, and you can almost smell the sweat and napalm. This is a no brainer purchase for any collector. It’s packed with extras I haven’t even started on yet that’ll keep you busy for hours. The Final Cut is the version Copolla intended screening in theaters, but was trimmed down to the uncomprehending Theatrical version. It’s over 3 hours long clocking 183 minutes.

Great film

One of my favourite films and it arrived in perfect condition!

Stunning

How this movie should be seen.stunning in 4k.

Apocalypse Now

This is one of my favourite films of all time and this new 4K cut didn't disappoint. The film was delivered fast and didn't come with scrathes or marks.

Apocalypse now -final cut 4k ultra

Great picture and sound quality on 4k ultra oled TV. Have always loved this film but this version with the French plantation scene was quite long so not sure when I will watch it again
