Francis Ford Coppola’s Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone to Debut on Blu-ray™ and Digital December 8, 2020

Francis Ford Coppola’s

Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone

to Debut on Blu-ray and Digital December 8, 2020


Newly Restored, Brand-New Edit ofThe Godfather: Part III 
Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary


HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Just in time for the 30thanniversary of The Godfather: Part III, director/screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola has re-edited the final film in his epic Godfather trilogy.  This new version, entitled Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone, achieves Coppola and screenwriter Puzo’s original vision for the finale, which has been meticulously restored for the finest presentation of the Corleone saga’s last chapter.  Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone will debut on Blu-ray and Digital December 8, 2020 from Paramount Home Entertainment.


“‘Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone’ is an acknowledgement of Mario’s and my preferred title and our original intentions for what became ‘The Godfather: Part III,’” said Coppola. “For this version of the finale, I created a new beginning and ending, and rearranged some scenes, shots, and music cues. With these changes and the restored footage and sound, to me, it is a more appropriate conclusion to ‘The Godfather’ and ‘The Godfather: Part II’ and I’m thankful to Jim Gianopulos and Paramount for allowing me to revisit it.”


Coppola and his production company American Zoetrope worked from a 4K scan of the original negative to undertake a painstaking, frame-by-frame restoration of both the new Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone and the original The Godfather: Part III. In order to create the best presentation possible, Zoetrope and Paramount’s restoration team began by searching for over 50 original takes to replace lower resolution opticals in the original negative.  This process took more than six months and involved sifting through 300 cartons of negative.  American Zoetrope worked diligently to repair scratches, stains, and other anomalies that could not be addressed previously due to technology constraints, while enhancements were made to the original 5.1 audio mix. 


The Blu-ray presentation will include the newly restored and re-edited film, an exclusive introduction by Coppola, and access to a Digital copy of the film.


Coppola’s masterful film adaptation of Puzo’s novel chronicles the rise and fall of the Corleone family and the saga is rightfully viewed as one of the greatest in cinematic history.  The Godfather: Part III was nominated for seven Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Director*.  The film follows Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), now in his 60s, as he seeks to free his family from crime and find a suitable successor to his empire.

Legendary Comics Releases Special Deluxe Edition Trick ‘r Treat Comic Book Collection in Celebration of the Beloved Cult Classic Film


Horror fans can revisit all of Sam’s haunting stories of Halloweens past and present 

together for the first time ever in one definitive collection, 

now on sale online and in stores



LOS ANGELES, September 22, 2020 – In time for Halloween and in celebration of the beloved horror saga, Legendary Comics released today the omnibus of the TRICK ‘R TREAT comic book collection from the deliciously dark imagination of the film’s creator Michael Dougherty (writer and director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the holiday horror hit, Krampus). The celebratory edition—uniting the past two previously released graphic novels for the first time ever and featuring a new special introduction from Dougherty, new cover art and other cool extras—is now on sale in stores and online.


“In these unprecedented and hard times, it is important to keep the Halloween spirit alive and I can’t think of a better way to kick off the season than sharing it with the Halloween icon Sam in this special Trick ‘r Treat collection,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics. “Fans of the film who want to revisit these twisted stories, as well as new readers discovering them for the first time, are in for a real treat. And, as we embark on new ways to celebrate Halloween with virtual trick or treating and drive through haunted houses, just remember to uphold the old Halloween traditions as well and keep your jack-o’-lanterns burning or you might just find Sam at your front doorstep.”


“Even if we can’t have Halloween parties or go trick or treating this year, I hope this compilation will help readers conjure Sam and that special spooky season magic he brings,” said Dougherty. “Because as much as the holiday has become about costumes and candy, Halloween was always meant to be a celebration of those who’ve passed, so I can’t think of a better time to gather around a glowing jack-o’-lantern sharing stories that honor the best night of the year.”


Legendary Comics is bringing fans the full compendium of twisted Halloween tales, brought to life by a top-notch team of creators, including: writers Zach Shields (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Krampus) and Todd Casey (Krampus); Eisner Award-winning writer Marc Andreyko (Batwoman); Eisner Award-winning artist Fiona Staples (SAGA); ZID (Skull Island: Birth of Kong; Lost in Space: Countdown To Danger); Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship); Stephen Byrne (Green Arrow); Grant Bond (Supernatural); Mike Huddleston (Man Bat); and Christopher Gugliotti (Texas Chainsaw Massacre).  


Trick ‘r Treat, the graphic novel adaptation of the film, reveals four evocatively illustrated tales of horror interwoven into one unforgettable Halloween night as the unsettling figure known as Sam pays a visit to an unsuspecting community, wreaking havoc during the scariest night of the year.


And then, in Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead, franchise icon Sam takes readers on a journey back through Halloween history with four chilling tales. Discover old-world lovers whose romance takes a chilling turn and Western pioneers who discover the dark side of the frontier. Travel to 1950s Los Angeles for a tale of pure horror noir and into the heart of small-town America to see some pranksters taught a lesson they’ll never forget. Across centuries of Halloween horror, wherever fear lies, Sam will be waiting…

Sex Is Not That Simple, The Documentary Series That Will Make You...


LOS ANGELES, CA, September 22, 2020 -- "No one's ever looked at my vagina before. I was like: 'Oh my God, is it normal? Does it look ok?'" Sara says. In "Sex Is Not That Simple", a new documentary series, 9 people talk about their sexual experiences. They share funny stories, anecdotes and doubts, and all come to the same conclusion: Sex is not as easy or intuitive as we pretend. 

"[We were in bed and] this girl wanted me to choke her with her necklace until she was really red. I pretended that I was into this stuff but inside I was like: "Oh my God! What am I doing?!'" Zaza tells in episode 3. 

This series, composed of 6 episodes, deals with 18 different subjects. Among them: insecurities about genitals, oral sex and even ego. "When the person I am having sex with likes what I did, I feel like I am applauded!" says Ada. 

The documentary series also gets into more sensitive topics such as consent and slut shaming. Ceyda confesses: "Men can blame you for having too much libido. They call you a nymphomaniac, they ask you: 'Don't you have anything better to do?', stuff like this…". However, the viewer acknowledges that women and men are actually not so different. As good as sex might be (or not), it is a source of uncertainty for almost everyone.

"People talk a lot about sex but they rarely get into the real topic. Sex can be really challenging sometimes, for all of us. The message of this documentary is: 'You can chill, you are not alone in this mess'" Romain Anthony Zlatanovic, the director of the series, says. "Sexuality is not necessarily intuitive. We have to learn how to act, how to handle someone else's body… And sometimes it gets weird! There can be unexpected reactions, unexpected noises... Watching this documentary, everyone will feel a bit more comfortable. And will also have a good time."

What about fetishism? Orgasms? Why is the clitoris not explicitly mentioned in such a series? "In this first season, we focused on doubts and awkwardness. All those topics will be covered in the two next seasons called "Identities" and "Pleasure", the director assures. 

You can watch Sex Is Not That Simple on Vimeo (worldwide), Amazon Prime (US and UK), Youtube Movies and TV (USCanadaUKAustraliaand France) and Google Play (USCanadaUKAustralia and France).
