Between films like Escape from New York, The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China, few partnerships in the world of the genre are as popular as those between director John Carpenter and actor Kurt Russell. Their last joint project was the 1996 film Escape from Los Angeles, which was released on Blu-ray with a special collector’s edition of Scream Factory. Following the tradition of Blu-ray distribution, the release of the film is accompanied by a series of fascinating feature films and interviews with the actors and the film crew. See the full list of features below and get your copy of Escape from Los Angeles on Blu-ray from 26-27 December. May (pre-order from Amazon now).
Snake Plissken (Russell) takes control of Los Angeles after a 9.6 magnitude earthquake destroyed the city. His task is to sneak through the destroyed monuments of Los Angeles to find the infernal machine. Don’t miss Snake’s excitement as he surfs Wilshire Blvd, throws baskets at the Coliseum, bombs at the Happy Kingdom theme park and mixes with a wild mix of friends and enemies including Stacey Keach, Steve Bushemi, Bruce Campbell, Peter Fonda, George Corrafeis, Cliff Robertson and Pam Greer. Escape from Los Angeles is action (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)!

Like many of John Carpenter’s favourite films, the original Escape from New York would have a new edition by writer/director Invisible Man Lee Wunnell, who has already described in detail how difficult it is to bring the concept to a new audience.
It’s funny, I was so busy with this film that I didn’t have time to get back to this project, Vannell said. Sometimes those press releases come out before you’re done, you are: Don’t tell anyone! Actually, I don’t know. I really don’t know. He’s a cult figure, and I think Snake Plisskin is part of people’s childhood and youth. It’s tight and expensive for them. So I would have been very careful.
He went on to say that I don’t think this kind of property has the same freedom as maybe something like the Invisible Man. He’s more elastic as a character because his fingerprints are on it. There were TV shows and comic books, and now we’re talking about a last movie with Escape from New York and we shouldn’t interfere. Let’s see what happens.
The escape from Los Angeles took place on the 26th. May on Blu-ray.
