Plot Synopsis: 1981, 3-time Academy Award Winning composer Giorgio Moroder began a three-year endeavor to restore the science fiction classic, Metropolis. During this restoration Moroder made the controversial decision to give a film a new, contemporary score and added a pop music soundtrack featuring songs from some biggest pop and rock stars of the early MTV era including Pat Benatar, Billy Squier, Freddie Mercury, Bonnie Tyler, Adam Ant, Jon Anderson and more! In addition, to the new score, missing footage was re-edited into the film, intertitles were removed and replaced with subtitles and sound effects and color was added, creating an all new experience... and an all new film. For more than a quarter century, this version of the film has remained out of print, until now. A new HD transfer was created from one of the few remaining prints available and Kino Lorber is presenting the film in the best possible quality, as it was seen in its original release in August 1984.
