At the Movies: ‘The Godfather’ at 50 anni

Based on the best-selling book by the late Mario Puzo, The Godfather debuted in theaters on 24 March 1972. Immediately receiving universal acclaim, the Paramount Pictures film was, for a frame, the highest-grossing movie of all time, hauling in $243.8-M worldwide, which adjusted for inflation equals $1.6-B.

Italian American director Coppola, 32 anni, helmed the picture for producer Albert S. Ruddy; tales of its uphill production, fraught with one issue after another such as casting the brilliant, but difficult Marlon Brando are epic, they’re getting a limited series treatment on Paramount+ titled The Offer.

The Godfather went on to be best picture at the 45th Academy Awards. In addition to Mr. Coppola winning an Oscar, shared with Mr. Puzo for best adapted screenplay, he was also nominated for best director. Several of the iconic cast were also nominated, including Brando who won and declined the award, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall and James Caan.

At the Box Office

‘The Batman’ Earns Another $36-M, Hits $300-M Domestically

The Caped Crusader placed #1 at the box office for the 3rd weekend running, while ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’ confirmed the increasing appetite for Japanese anime.

That landscape will change next weekend when Paramount opens the Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum action-adventure The Lost City, which held advance screenings on Saturday night, with 70% of showings sold out.

Have some fun, see a movie in a theater this week, the chaos is over. Keep the Faith!
