You can have the gun and the cannoli; we want this 4-disc high-def set.
The Godfather Collection
This new “Godfather” collection includes restored versions of all three original movies.

Well, Paramount had to figure out a way to get you to buy “Godfather III,” right?

The studio just announced “The Godfather Collection: The Coppola Restoration” for standard-def DVD and Blu-ray. Both versions include each of the three original movies, which have been completely restored—a process that was overseen by Francis Ford Coppola himself.

Featuring all of the bonus material from the original box set, this set also includes a bevy of new extras. Presented in 1080p, the Blu-ray version supports with English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD, French 5.1 Dolby Digital, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital and English Mono (except The Godfather: Part III) and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles.

Each of the three movies will have its own disc with Coppola commentary. Disc four has behind the scenes info, a family tree, Connie and Carlo’s Wedding Album, additional scenes, photos, short films, and a slew of other featurettes and extras.

The 5-disc standard-def set has been enhanced for 16:9 viewing. It doesn’t have all of the Blu-ray version’s extras or the same price tag, retailing for $72.99. All three of the movies will also be available individually for $20 each—but only in standard-def.

“The Godfather Collection: The Coppola Restoration” will be available starting September 23 for $119.99.
