Francis Ford Coppola already revealed his plans to re-release his Vietnam War masterpiece Apocalypse Now on theaters on August 15 and 18, with the iconic film set to play on select IMAX screens as well. Which means fans of the classic film can enjoy the 4K transfer on the largest screens for a limited time.

“In truth, I’ve always wanted Apocalypse Now to be exhibited in the grandest format of cinema conceivable,” Coppola said. “And now audiences will have a chance to experience ‘Final Cut’ in the most immersive format in existence.”

One of the most acclaimed films of all time, Apocalypse Nowhas seen two previous releases. The original film screened in Cannes on May 10, 1979 before hitting theaters on August 15 of the same year. It was a box office hit upon initial release, accumulating $150 million worldwide. And while critics were mixed, the film still received eight Academy Award nominations, winning two for Best Sound and Best Cinematography. To this day, Apocalypse Now and its many masterful sequences such as “Ride of the Valkyries” are still paid homage to in motion pictures.

In 2001, Coppola released a 202-minute extended cut titled Apocalypse Now Redux in theaters and on DVD. This new version, simply titled Apocalypse Now Final Cut, is shorter than Redux, but longer than the original cut of the film
