The Godfather Collectible Figure

There have been plenty of collectibles and artwork paying tribute to cinema’s greatest mob boss, Don Vito Corleone from The Godfather. But most of them hone in on the intimidating version of the man in a tuxedo discussing dark deeds and deals with the shades drawn. The collectible creators at Damtoys are taking a different approach with a new 1/6 scale figure of a much more casual, even sleepy, version of Vito Corleone, labeled as the “Golden Years Edition” of the character. Check it out below. Read More »

Godfather Making Of Movie

Barry Levinson is making a movie about the making of The Godfather, and it’s already shaping up to have quite a cast. Oscar Isaac is set to play Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, while Jake Gyllenhaal will play legendary producer Rober Evans.

There was significant push-back against Coppola directing the film, as there was against several of Coppola’s casting choices. But of course, as we know now, it all worked out in the end.

The Godfather Life-Size Bust

As pop culture fanatics, we’ve seen a lot of weird, expensive merchandise inspired by movies and TV shows. But some of the most perplexing collectibles, at least to me, are life-size busts featuring life-like sculpts of famous faces, and this new piece from DAMTOYS inspired by The Godfather is easily one of the most unnerving.

Marlon Brando is immortalized in a tangible form as this life-size bust of his portrayal of Vito Corlone in The Godfather, complete with a fabric partial suit, synthetic hair, and a face made out of medical grade silicone. See The Godfather life-size bust below and think about how it would terrify you in the middle of the night. Read More »

the offer tv series

It’s gonna be a hell of a sell for ViacomCBS to convince people to subscribe to their newly rebranded Paramount+ (formerly CBS All Access). But with its newly announced slate of original titles, Paramount+ may have an offer we can’t refuse.

ViacomCBS announced that five new originals will be arriving to Paramount+ when it rebrands in early 2021, including The Offer, a scripted drama about the making of The Godfather from the perspective of film producer Al Ruddy. Ruddy serves as executive producer on the limited series, which will be written by Michael Tolkin (Escape From Dannemora), who also serves as executive producer.

Just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in. Francis Ford Coppola hasn’t directed a new feature film in a few years, but he has gone back to tinker with some old ones. He recently released a recut version of The Cotton Club, and now he’s about to do the same thing with The Godfather Part III. Infamous for being the least-well-received entry in the otherwise fantastic Godfather saga, this new Godfather III cut, which goes by the somewhat clunky title Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone, is headed to theaters and digital platforms this December.
