Midnight Run in April


The cult classic Midnight Run starring Robert De Niro, Charles Grodin and Dennis Farina is getting a Blu ray release in the UK by Second Sight in April.

Bounty hunter Jack Walsh has got a new assignment, one that could set him up for retirement. He’s just got to get bail-jumping accountant Jonathan ‘The Duke’ Mardukas back to L.A. by midnight on Friday. But he’s not the only one on his trail. The Duke’s just embezzled $15 million from the mob who want him dead, trying to get him first are the FBI who want him to testify, five minutes in his company and Jack just wants him to shut up. It’s going to be a long journey from New York to L.A.! With a razor-sharp script and performances to match, Martin Brest’s cult road movie sees De Niro give one of his greatest comic performances, equally matched by his co-star Grodin.

The disc will have lots of new extras including interviews with Joe Pantoliano and Charles Grodin and lots of other stuff yet to be announced. Review soon.
