Francis Ford Coppola’s definitive cut of his Vietnam masterpiece Apocalypse Now: Final Cut will come out Oct. 19 on 4K Ultra HD Steelbook from Lionsgate, exclusively at Best Buy.
The film is fully restored from the original 1979 film and enhanced with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, as well as Meyer Sound’s Sensual Sound.
Starring Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando and Dennis Hopper, the war epic, inspired by Joseph Conrad’s story Heart of Darkness, follows Army Capt. Willard (Sheen), a troubled man sent on a dangerous odyssey into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade American colonel named Kurtz (Brando), who has succumbed to the horrors of war and barricaded himself in a remote outpost.
The Steelbook features all new artwork from artist Ken Taylor and an intro by Coppola.
