The Godfather: Part III was greeted with a mixed response from critics and audiences upon its release in 1990.
Director Francis Ford Coppola wasn’t entirely happy with it either, having envisaged it as a coda – or epilogue – to the first two films and not part of a trilogy. Coppola has since been given the opportunity to revisit and restore the film to his original vision, complete with his preferred original (and spoilerific) title, and a new beginning and ending. Moreover, a number of scenes, shots and music cues have been repositioned, and an extensive frame-by-frame restoration using a 4K scan of the original negative was undertaken to deliver the best possible picture and sound quality. The end result promises to be a much more satisfying finale to Mario Puzo’s mighty mafia saga.
