Midnight Run

One of the biggest cult films of the 80s Midnight Run, starring the legendary Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin, comes to UK Blu-ray for the first time from Second Sight Films.

Robert De Niro plays Jack Walsh, a bounty hunter with a new assignment that could set him up for retirement. All he has to do is get bail-jumping accountant Jonathan ‘The Duke’ Mardukas (Charles Grodin) back to Los Angeles by midnight on Friday. But things aren’t that simple. The Duke has embezzled $15 million from the mob and they want him dead, the FBI want to get to him first to testify, Jack just wants him to shut-up after five minutes in his company. It’s going to be a long journey from New York to L.A.

With a razor-sharp script and performances to match, Martin Brest’s (Beverly Hills Cop), cult road movie sees De Niro (Goodfellas) give one of his greatest comic performances, equally matched by co-star Grodin (Beethoven)This highly anticipated high-def version will be released on 20 April 2015 complete with some fantastic brand new special features.
