Black Moon Rising (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Harley Cokeliss
Don Keith Opper
Brand New 2K Restoration of the film from the Original 35mm interpositive! When master thief Sam Quint (Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive, Blown Away, The Park Is Mine) is hired by the government to steal top-secret data from a crime organization, he hides the stolen data in the experimental supercar, The Black Moon. But when the car is then stolen by high-tech auto thief Nina (Linda Hamilton, The Terminator), Quint must pull off the most daring heist of all: break into an impenetrable skyscraper and steal it back. With time running out and all sides closing in, Quint and Nina take The Black Moon on one final ride towards a shattering climax of sky-high suspense. Screenplay by legendary filmmaker John Carpenter (Escape from New York), Desmond Nakano (American Me) and William Gray (An Eye for an Eye), from a story by Carpenter. Top-notch direction by Harley Cokliss (Malone) with a rousing score by Lalo Schifrin (Prime Cut). The all-star cast includes Robert Vaughn (Bullitt), Richard Jaeckel (The Dirty Dozen), Lee Ving (The Taking of Beverly Hills), Bubba Smith (Police Academy), William Sanderson (Blade Runner), Keenan Wynn (Dr. Strangelove), Nick Cassavetes (The Wraith) and Don Keith Opper (Android).
