It’s without question that “The Godfather” is a spectacular and gripping dramatic film and believe it or not the release will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in the coming months. To help laud a limited theatrical run, Paramount Pictures has delivered a 50th Anniversary Trailer. Take a look down below at this clip and the legendary casting of this Academy Award winning film.

About The Trailer: In Select Theatres February 25 and on 4K Ultra HD and Digital March 22. No movie changed Hollywood more than THE GODFATHER. From the bestselling novel by Mario Puzo to box-office blockbuster, its influential legacy endures to this day. Starring Marlon Brando in his Oscar®-winning performance as the patriarch of the Corleone family, this first installment in the three-movie saga paints a dramatic portrait of the Sicilian clan’s rise and near fall from power in America. Balanced between the Corleone’s commitment to family and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged, it features career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan, Talia Shire, Diane Keaton and Robert Duvall. This searing and brilliant masterpiece garnered ten Academy Award® nominations, and won three, including Best Picture.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: So I will be honest that I don’t have anything additional to add to this trailer since its for a film that has been out for so many years already but I will say that I am glad to know it is getting a return to theaters if only for a brief run. During the heavier parts of the pandemic, the movie theaters and all their staff took a bad hit. I am not speaking of the film industry but those houses that stay open and all the workers who count on it to survive. I am glad that many have re-opened and are showcasing films once again. We aren’t 100% “there” yet but I will admit to having seen a few films over the last few months. I’ve been keeping it to the Marvel Superhero stuff for the most part and with that being said I don’t think I will see ”The Godfather” during the limited run. If they release a 50th Anniversary Blu-ray I might investigate that since I don’t own the film currently and I don’t mind building up my digital queue. This trailer was a solid reminder of how gripping the film was way back when and actually still is. Nice work Paramount, so what do you readers think? Will you be seeing this one again when the chance is there? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
