Fritz Lang’s epic science-fiction drama, Metropolis, premiered in Berlin on 10 January 1927.

The original cut of Metropolis has been lost and for decades only shorter versions of the film could be seen. However, over the years, various elements of footage have been rediscovered and in 2010 a new restoration was released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Kino Video.

You probably won’t have time to watch the entire film today but this trailer only lasts for a couple of minutes and is well worth a look.

Thanks for reading my blog today.
