Robert De Niro and Al Pacino celebrated the 50th Godfather anniversary

-

Actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Godfather movie  through a special projection at the Tribeca film festival in New York City.

Al Pacino, who is 82 years old, the actor who played Michael Corleone and Robert De Niro, 78 years old, who played young Vito Corleone in The Godfather Part II, released in 1978, went on stage full of emotion.

Al Pacino talked about this cinematic masterpiece and confessed that he is “deeply honored” for all the praises received by The Godfather. Pacino also said he was very lucky to get the role of Michael Corleone, although it took him a “life time” to accept it and move on.

Al Pacino was only 31 years old and a single movie in his resume when Francis Ford Coppola approached him for the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather.

The Godfather received 10 Oscar nominations. In 1973 he won the Oscar for best movie but also the Oscar for best actor ( the award went to Marlon Brando ) and best movie script ( Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola ).

Over the course of the last five decades, The Godfather received praises from both movie critics and the audience and the most praised were actors Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall and Francis Ford Coppola.

The Godfather became the highest grossing movie at the box office in 1972 and for a good while it was the highest grossing movie ever, with between $246 and $287 million gross.

The Tribeca movie festival is founded by Robert De Niro.
