Throughout this week “Napoleon” will be released in theaters in all countries of the world. A film produced by Apple TV+ that is about the most famous French leader in history. Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix join forces in one of the first Apple productions to hit the big screen, although it won’t be the only one.
This version is not the definitive one. Now we are also working on an extended version that will have a duration of four hours and ten minutes. In principle it is said that this will solve some of the problems of editing and character development that may fall slightly short in the “commercial” version.
The life of Napoleon, but with twice as many shots
The duration of the version that will be released this Thursday in theaters in Spain, and tomorrow in the United States, lasts just over two and a half hours. The extended version will not be released in theaters, but we will have to wait for it to be published on the Apple TV+ platform. We don’t have an exact date yet, but We estimate that it will be from January.
Normally, from the time a film stops appearing in theaters until it begins to be seen in digital versions and streaming platforms, there is an unwritten window that must be respected of 45 days. That is why it would be logical to see this version on Apple TV+ starting in mid or late January.
“Napoleon is a spectacle-packed action epic detailing the eventful rise and fall of the iconic French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, played by Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix. The film is an original and personal look at Napoleon’s origins and his rapid and ruthless rise to emperor, seen through the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship with his wife and one true love of his, Josephine. The film captures the famous battles, relentless ambition and astonishing strategic mind of Napoleon as an extraordinary military leader and war visionary.”
Apple is taking its services to another level. TV+ began as a service of series and productions that were very small in number. Now they are releasing several films in theaters, and then bringing extended versions to their platform. It’s a huge step, even winning Oscars and Emmy nominations.
