With the upcoming Escape From New York Blu-Ray on the horizon, the first extras details are online. Let’s have a look…
Blu-ray Disc One:
Blu-ray Disc Two:
This disc will be released April 21st. By the way 20th Century Fox has reportedly won a competitive bidding war to bring us a new version of John Carpenter’s iconic 1981 sci-fi classic.
Kurt Russell starred in the original as Snake Plissken, a criminal tasked with rescuing the President of the United States after the downing of Air Force One. The President’s escape pod landed on Manhattan Island, which has been converted to a maximum security prison completely run by the criminals that inhabit it. Adding to the complications, Snake has one day in which to get him back – otherwise he’ll be killed by a poison in his system.
Possibly the best news here is that John Carpenter will return to this new project as an executive producer, and will provide creative input for what Fox hopes will be a reinvention that will launch a new franchise featuring the new Snake.
