Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi epic Metropolis is going to be re-released as the director originally intended for it to be seen for the first time since German cinema-goers saw it in 1927. The footage previously believed to be lost has been found and restored back into the film.
The reconstructed and restored Metropolis will be shown in cinemas this September and the dvd/blu ray will be released late 2010.
