The Complete Metropolis Movie Trailer has premiered. The Complete Metropolis is directed by Fritz Lang and stars Alfred Abe, Gustav Fröhlich, Rudolf Klein-Rogge, Fritz Rasp, and Brigitte Helm. The Complete Metropolis‘ plot synopsis: “In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city’s mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.” The official announcement for the new version of the film
The most influential of all silent films — and a blueprint for future classics like Blade Runner and The Matrix — Fritz Lang’s visionary Metropolis can finally be seen as intended, with 25 minutes of newly—discovered footage and Gottfried Huppertz’s magnificent original score. The addition of this astounding new material (1,257 shots, including entire new sequences), carefully restored and edited into the 2002 restoration, results in the closest rendition ever seen since the film’s 1927 Berlin premiere.
Metropolis, now The Complete Metropolis, is 147-minute long.
