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.

Mondo Tee’s brand new Metropolis poster. This was made by Uruguayan illustrator Martin Ansin for the upcoming SXSW screening of the film at the Alamo Drafthouse.
Two different variants of the poster were made, one is gold, the other is silver, both printed with metallic inks, with the silver one also featuring glow in the dark ink.
I really love the whole look of them.
You can buy them from Mondo Tee.

Hi to all our readers in Argentina.
Lost footage from Fritz Lang’s classic, Metropolis where recently found in Buenos Aires Museum. These lost scenes have just been shown to journalists.
Apparantly this original cut of the 1927 film had been in the hands of a private colector for 80 years before being passed to the Museum.
The original cut is 3 and a half hours long so there must be some substantial extra scenes on there. Hopefully it will get rereleased.
Quite rightly the Museum Director, Paula Felix-Didier, has said, “The film hasn’t left the museum and it won’t leave until the city government and the Murnau Foundation decide what to do.”
