And just like there are now three “Marquee Collection” Blu-ray releases in the pipeline from MVD Entertainment Group!
Two weeks ago the Dwayne Johnson remake of Walking Tall was the launch title for this new promotion banner, which MVD describes as films too new to be “cult,” but just old enough to be “catalog,” — a companion class, if you will, to the company’s popular “Rewind Collection.”
Last week director Joan Chen’s 2000 film releases of Autumn in New York, starring Richard Gere and Winona Ryder, was next “Marquee Collection” Blu-ray to be announced for delivery on Aug. 28.
This week it is Blast! on Blu-ray, the all-action thriller from writer/director Albert Pyun. The street will also be Aug. 28.
Jack Bryant (Linden Ashby) is in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s been like that for a number of years for this former Olympic hopeful, who let booze and injuries bring him down to the low-level world of being a building janitor.
He’d actually prefer being back at home watching the Women’s Olympic Swim Team on TV, but when the international terrorist known as Omodo (Andrew Divoff) and crew take the team hostage (at the Atlanta Summer Olympics) he finds that he has an exclusive front row seat to the terror. Only a cell phone to an outside expert in tactics (Rutger Hauer), his wits and his long forgotten martial arts skills stand between torture and death for the hostages!!
