“We’re here!” Who’s ready for another round at The Cotton Club? Lionsgate has debuted a new trailer for The Cotton Club Encore, which is the official title for a “new iteration” of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1984 film The Cotton Club. With his team at American Zoetrope, Coppola set out to create an updated version that would more closely resemble the original intentions of the film. This new version, shown only at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival, features additional scenes such as an extended Gregory Hines & Maurice Hines tap performance, Lonette McKee’s brilliant rendition of “Stormy Weather,” the originally envisioned ending, and more. Set in the 1930s, the film centers around the The Cotton Club, a famous night club in Harlem. Starring Richard Gere, Gregory Hines, Diane Lane, & Lonette McKee, with Bob Hoskins, James Remar, Nicolas Cage, Allen Garfield, Laurence Fishburne, & Gwen Verdon. This new cut will play at the New York Film Festival then open in theaters, before arriving on Blu-ray this fall. Check it out below. ›››
