THIS CONTEST HAS NOW ENDED. We can only accept entries posted by the deadline. If you’ve entered, thanks and good luck! We’ll select our random winner soon.

ORIGINAL POST: We interrupt our regular Movie Poster Monday for our latest giveaway: A one-time-only movie poster celebrating the latest treatment to The Godfather epic, The Godfather: The Coppola Restoration. And you can win one right here at Meet In the Lobby. (Click on it for the biggie.)

The Godfather: Coppola Restoration Movie Poster

The artistry, impact and longevity of The Godfather series is undeniable. Yes, even the much-maligned The Godfather Part III. Say what you will, but it’s a sharply plotted signature to a pair of films that reimagined the modern crime drama — and made Francis Coppola a rich man.

After adapting Mario Puzo’s pulpy novel into a classic – and dealing with complaints about casting little-known Al Pacino and Gordon Willis’ appropriately dark photography — Coppola never wanted to direct The Godfather, Part II. Too much hassle. But he returned, with what is believed to be an unprecedented million-dollar payday. The Oscars kept coming, and both movies are widely considered two of the greatest American films ever made.

Now, Coppola has overseen a restoration of the first two films, available as part of an incredible set (with Part III) on DVD and Blu-ray. Paramount is touting these updated prints as “an all-new experience,” and the science behind it is fascinating for us purists. Details are available on the DVD and the official Godfather website.

We could go on and on. And on. But let’s get to it: We have two copies of the commemorative Godfather trilogy poster to give away (no, the signature isn’t an autograph — it’s part of the DVD cover art). To enter, just leave a comment on this post saying you’d like one. We’ll choose two entrants at random as the winners. Entries will be accepted through Monday, December 22 at 5pm ET.
