Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced this past week that Barcelona-born filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra’s latest action thriller, Run All Night, which teams him once again with Liam Neeson — in 2014 they delivered Non Stop — will be a DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack launch on June 16.
The ARR is 95 days and the domestic box office take was $26.4 million.
This time out Neeson gets to return to his Irish roots as a former hit man by the name of Jimmy Conlon, but his professional moniker was “The Gravedigger.” He was a long-serving enforcer for the New York City-based Irish mob, but that was long ago.
He is forced out of retirement — and forced to sober up as well — when his son (Joel Kinnaman — RoboCop) becomes tangled up with Albanian drug dealers and sets in motion a series of killings that, wouldn’t you know it, lead right back to Conlon’s old boss (played by Ed Harris) … there will be no peace until one, or both, of them end up dead!
Bonus features include deleted scenes, and a pair featurettes (exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU) — “Shoot All Night” and “Action All Night.”
Also added to the release calendar this past week for delivery on DVD on May 5 are a pair of long overdue Wallace Berry films.
Director John Conway’s (with uncredited directing assistance from both Howard Hawks and William A. Wellman) 1934 Best Picture nominee, Viva Villa!, starring Wallace Beery as Pancho Villa … his co-stars were Fay Wray and Leo Carrillo.
The other Wallace Berry film getting a vault dust-off is director William A. Wellman’s 1945 film, This Man’s Navy, which takes a look at the LTA service (lighter than air … blimps) in the waning of World War II. Tom Drake, James Gleason and Jan Clayton (as Ellen in the Lassie TV series) are Berry’s co-stars.
