Mamma mia! Francis Ford Coppola's classic film franchise will be available to stream soon.
Netflix has added a dose of classic cinema with its introduction of the Godfather trilogy into its streaming repertoire in January 2018. Movie lovers around the world, especially those who appreciate classic Hollywood fare, will now be able to stream the iconic franchise from the comfort of their homes, and relive all the memorable moments and quotes which have established the films' distinct legacy.
Netflix announced the arrival of the series onto its network with a Tweet that humorously references Vito Corleone's (played by Marlon Brando) most famous quote:
Arguably one of the most respected movie franchises in the history of cinema, the Godfather saga racked up 28 Oscar nominations at the time of their release, winning nine awards including Best Picture for both I and II, Best Director for Francis Ford Coppola, as well as Best Actor for Brando. The film also included a noteworthy cast of Hollywood legends including Brando, Al Pacino, and Diane Keaton.
The first two additions in the franchise are considered to be two of the best films in cinema's history, while the third is universally recognized as a disappointment, and a deviation from the preceding film's brilliance and mastery.
In other Netflix news, Bright has accumulated a staggering amount of viewers since its release last week, as the critically-reviled film amassed a viewership of 11 million in just three days.
