The eagerly awaited 3 Disc Apocalypse Now Blu-ray is released this coming Monday (13th June). It includes both the original 1979 theatrical version of Francis Ford Coppola’s visionary masterpiece, and the longer ‘Redux’ version that was released around 2006. Discs 2 and 3 are chock full of extras (most of them released previously as part of the ‘Complete Dossier’ North American DVD release), the jewel of which is the long out of print Hearts of Darkness documentary about the making of the film which itself ranks as one of the greatest films ever made about filmmaking.

This release is about as definitive as definitive gets, and is likely the final word on the film unless Coppola ever decides to release an even LONGER version – there is more footage that was not included in AN Redux.

Here’s another new trailer, created for the Blu-ray release, and watch for my feature about the film that will be posted on Monday.

I've worked in entertainment product development and sales & marketing in the U.S., UK and my native Canada for over 20 years, and have been a part of many changes during that time (I've overseen home entertainment releases on VHS, LaserDisc, DVD and Blu-ray). I've also written and commentated about film and music for many outlets over the years. The first film I saw in the cinema was Mary Poppins, some time in the mid-60s: I was hooked. My love of the moving image remains as strong as ever.
