Midnight Run (1988)
Thursday 26th February 2015
One of the biggest cult films of the 80s Midnight Run, starring the legendary Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin, comes to UK Blu-ray for the first time from Second Sight Films.
Robert De Niro plays Jack Walsh, a bounty hunter with a new assignment that could set him up for retirement. All he has to do is get bail-jumping accountant Jonathan 'The Duke' Mardukas (Charles Grodin) back to Los Angeles by midnight on Friday. But things aren't that simple. The Duke has embezzled $15 million from the mob and they want him dead, the FBI want to get to him first to testify, Jack just wants him to shut-up after five minutes in his company. 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 (Beverly Hills Cop), cult road movie sees De Niro (Goodfellas) give one of his greatest comic performances, equally matched by co-star Grodin (Beethoven). This highly anticipated high-def version will be released on 20th April 2015 complete with some fantastic brand new special features.
