UPDATED:Nighthawks Headed To Blu Ray


UPDATED: At the bottom you can check out the extras for this Blu-Ray listing.

PREVIOUSLY: It’s one of the ‘lesser’ Sylvester Stallone movies, but Nighthawks is still not a terrible movie. And maybe one to keep an eye out for now that it is getting a new Blu Ray release.

Independent U.S. distributors Shout Factory have announced that they plan to bring to Blu-ray Bruce Malmuth’s 1981 thriller, also Billy Dee Williams, Lindsay Wagner, Rutger Hauer, and Persis Khambatta. The release will be available for purchase on May 3.

Synopsis: Sylvester Stallone and Rutger Hauer star in this riveting story of suspense and intrigue that starts in London, continues in Paris and reaches its chilling conclusion on the streets of New York.

When Europe’s most feared terrorist (Hauer – The Hitcher) explosively announces his presence in Manhattan, two elite undercover cops (Stallone and Billy Dee Williams) are assigned to stop him before he strikes again. But the ruthless terrorist has other plans for the city – and the detectives.

This edge-of-your-seat thriller, directed by Bruce Malmuth (Hard to Kill), also stars Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), Persis Khambatta (Star Trek: The Motion Picture), Nigel Davenport (The Island of Dr. Moreau) and Joe Spinell (Maniac).

    Nighthawks was a lot of fun back in the day.. Rutger Hauers womanizing villain was badass. Sly and Billy Dee as partners were awesome too, really great stuff.

    Nice, but shame it probably won’t be the extended cut

    I still await that damn blu ray of “The Hitcher”, the 1987 one. Hauer was such a cool fucking cat in that one.

    Bit underrated this one, made during Rutger Hauer’s golden age of creepy villains in the early-mid 80’s e.g. Bladerunner, The Hitcher and of course Nighthawks. Still not sure how I feel about Stallone’s beard. It looked like he was trying to ape Pacino in Serpico. Or does every undercover cop have to have a beard as standard? 😉

    Speaking of Rutger Hauer… I highly recommend this proof of Rutger’s sheer badassery.

    Fun trivia: originally this film was developed as the third part of “French Connection”, with Gene Hackman reprising his role of Popeye Doyle and Richard Pryor portraying his new partner

    I saw The Osterman Weekend a few nights ago starring Rutger Hauer as the charismatic TV presenter turned tough guy John Tanner. It was Sam Peckinpah’s last film and there was also an alternate cut which featured a few different scenes with different angles and the ending was structured differently too. It was a workprint version and hopefully we might get that with Nighthawks if they decided to add in the original 2 and a half hour cut.
