Calling all movie buffs! We’re giving away 10 copies of Apocalypse Now on Blu-ray! The films are courtesy of Lionsgate Entertainment, and are available while supplies last.
Francis Ford Coppola’s Academy Award-winning film about the Vietnam War starring Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, and Robert Duvall is finally available in high-definition. Coppola recently spoke to EW about the new release of his 1979 film and its “poetic” opening scene set to “The End” by The Doors, which is arguably one of the best opening scenes in film history. We’ve got copies of the 2-disc set, which includes Apocalypse Now Redux, additional scenes, a reading of Heart of Darkness by Orson Welles, and lots more.
