Director and author Francis Ford Coppola is celebrating the 30th anniversary of “The Godfather III” with a new version of the third part of his iconic Mafia trilogy.

The first excerpts can already be seen: in the opening credits of the trailer for “The Godfather – The Death of Michael Corleone – Epilogue”, US director Francis Ford Coppola promises a “completely new experience”.

Among other things, he changed the beginning and the end in this remastered version and gave the film “new life”. According to the trailer, this is the director’s “true vision”. After the planned theatrical release at the beginning of December, the film should also be released for home theater on December 8th.

In the third and last part of the godfather saga (1972-1990), head of the family Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) tries to lead the mafia clan out of crime and to do honest business. But even in the trailer, bullets fly and blood flows. In addition to Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia, Joe Mantegna, Talia Shire and Sofia Coppola also play. The film received seven Academy Award nominations, but came away empty-handed at the 1991 awards ceremony.
