With the help of a recently discovered 16mm print found in an Argentinian film archive, Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece Metropolis is finally (nearly) complete.  And with the addition of 25 minutes of never-before-seen footage, Kino International is planning limited releases in cities across the country to let cinephiles everywhere see the b&w classic in all its glory.  As a German Expressionism junkie, I know I’ll be in line when it hits LA on May 14th.  For the new trailer and a full list of cities and dates for the theatrical re-release, follow the jump.

Metropolis will hit BluRay and DVD later this year.
