The Cotton Club Encore – On Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital
After doing it with Apocalypse Now Redux, director Francis Ford Coppola is back with another look at one of his classic films with The Cotton Club Encore. Now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital release, the new version features exclusive new bonus material from Lionsgate for the film and a reworked version that’s closer to Coppola’s original vision for the movie. (You can find out how to purchase the film in each version from the official Lionsgate website.)
Set in the 1930s at the iconic Cotton Club, the film followed the drama at Harlem’s legendary club as musicians, gangsters, and entertainers lives collided as they tried to navigate this world filled with violence and passion. The all-star cast included Richard Gere, Gregory Hines, Diane Lane, Lonette McKee, Bob Hoskins, James Remar, Maurice Hines, Laurence Fishburne, Nicolas Cage, Jennifer Grey, and Tom Waits.
This version of The Cotton Club was previously shown during the 2017 Telluride Film Festival, and this new cut also features additional scenes such as an extended Gregory Hines and Maurice Hines tap performance, Lonette McKee’s brilliant rendition of Ethel Waters’ “Stormy Weather,” as well as Coppola’s originally envisioned ending, and more scenes.
