Trailer Tuesday: Apocalypse Now

Apocalypse Now, 1979. Martin Sheen "In country."

Director Francis Ford Coppola released Apocalypse Now in August of 1979 after a long, troubled shoot and editing process that ran from March, 1976 until release. Thankfully, instead of a disaster we were presented with a powerful classic that did well at the box office, won many awards and garnered rave reviews.

My father took me to see Apocalypse Now in what must have been the opening or a special premiere week at a theater in San Francisco in ’79 and we received a glossy promotional booklet for the film which I still have packed away somewhere. Take in the trailer below.
