Watch Metropolis Now
In 1984, Oscar-winning composer Giorgio Moroder (Top Gun, Midnight Express, Flashdance) reintroduced Fritz Lang’s 1927 science fiction epic Metropolis to a new generation of moviegoers. He colourised scenes, added new subtitles, plus a throbbing rock soundtrack to Lang’s iconic imagery. Featuring songs from some of the biggest stars of the early MTV era: Freddie Mercury, Pat Benatar, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Loverboy, Jon Anderson and others, it became a dramatic vehicle for Moroder’s visionary music and a beautiful retro-futurist timepiece. Through faithfully maintaining Lang’s intriguing and timeless storyline, today, it is this version of Metropolis that first comes to mind for millions around the world.
The UK DVD Premiere of Giorgio Moroder Presents: Metropolis is released by Eureka Entertainment on a Limited Edition DVD Steelbook on 23rd July 2012. However it is also available for streaming right now for you lucky readers…
