2. Corleone font

The Godfather film logo vs Corleone font

Although the first movie’s logo had too tight spacing and wasn’t legible as a font, the third movie’s logo was better spaced and worked even at smaller type sizes. However, the font used for the film title in the poster is very similar to the Corleone font, designed by FontMesa. The font has 211 glyphs and 217 characters. In addition, it supports international characters and kerning. It offers the euro symbol as well. 

On August 18, 2013, it had an update. Additionally, the Corleone font has two variants. Unlike the first Corleone font, Corleone Due has normal upper case letters, while the first font has an extended top line.

Note: In our opinion, the “Corleone font” is more similar to or close to the Logo font from the Godfather film.
