Giorgio Moroder's version that took the film into the 21st century, with music by Freddie Mercury, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Pat Benatar and Lover Boy.
Moroder created his own version of Metropolis, adding colors, special effects, replacing the intertitles of the dialogues with subtitles and composing a soundtrack according to the era. Almost three decades after its premiere, the Metropolis recreated by Moroder is no longer seen as an irreverent work with Fritz Lang and can be enjoyed as what it has always been: A show of admiration for this masterpiece of German cinema and a decisive step towards the recovery and restoration of the cinematographic heritage. This version has been remastered in image and sound from a 35mm archival copy.

|Much to Fritz Lang's dismay, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels were big fans of the film. Goebbels met with Lang and told him that he could be made an honorary Aryan despite his Jewish background. Goebbels told him "Mr. Lang, we decide who is Jewish and who is not." Lang left for Paris that very night.
