One of the greatest films of all time, the much crowned Vietnam War classic, "Apocalypse Now", has exploded once again in South African cinemas, exactly 40 years since its first release.
The Gravel Road Distribution Group in Cape Town says Francis
Ford Coppola's, "Final Cut", version of his war masterpiece however, this time has been restored to the highest and finest audio & visual standards.
The group says the picture looks and sounds better than ever before and was now the...
way Coppola originally intended it.
The distributor says by using ultra- vivid picture quality with Dolby Vision, the movie's highlights are up to 40 times brighter and blacks ten times darker.
They say the new version further boasts spectacular colours not yet seen
before on the silver screen.
This special and never- before- seen edit of the cult film can only be experienced in IMAX theatres in the country currently.
Apocalypse Now, with a star-studded Hollywood cast, follows an army captain on a dangerous odyssey into Cambodia in the sixties to assassinate a renegade American colonel who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost.
