Shout Factory announced the upcoming release of Director John Carpenter’s action sci-fi, Escape From L.A. (1996) on a collector’s edition Blu-ray. Stars Kurt Russell.
Snake is back! Kurt Russell rejoins filmmakers John Carpenter and Debra Hill to do to Los Angeles what they did to the Big Apple in Escape From New York – with even more futuristic thrills and big action!
Into the 9.6-quaked Los Angeles of 2013 comes Snake Plissken (Russell). His job: wade through L.A.’s ruined landmarks to retrieve a doomsday device. Don’t miss the excitement as Snake surfs Wilshire Blvd., shoots hoops at the Coliseum, dive bombs the Happy Kingdom theme park, and mixes it up with a wild assortment of friends and foes including Stacy Keach, Steve Buscemi, Bruce Campbell, Peter Fonda, George Corraface, Cliff Robertson and Pam Grier. Escape From L.A. is a “go-for-broke action extravaganza” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times)!
The label is hoping to be able to produce a brand new transfer for the release. Exclusive new bonus features will be included.
