Sometimes you’re stuck in traffic and an obscure movie pops in your head. A few weeks ago my car is creeping in rush hour and I think how great Jeff Goldblum was in Into the Night. The memory comes complete with a bunch of us all over the sofas and floors of Fowlerhaus in the ’80s watch the comic thriller on VHS (or it could have been Beta). While the film was entertaining, it’s been a while since I’ve grazed across it on the cable box. Thankfully Into the Night is getting the Shout Select treatment so fans from the ’80s can experience it better than VHS. The bonus features shall enhance the experience since Jeff Goldblum wants to talk about the role. There’s also a short documentary with performances by B.B. King. Here’s the press release about release of Into the Night: Collector’s Edition:
INTO THE NIGHT [COLLECTOR’S EDITION]
FEATURING NEW INTERVIEWS
WITH JEFF GOLDBLUM AND JOHN LANDIS
ARRIVES ON BLU-RAY™ NOVEMBER 7, 2017
Los Angeles, CA – Shout! Factory is headed Into The Night on November 7 with a new Blu-ray release from their Shout Select line. Into The Night [Collector’s Edition] boasts new interviews with Jeff Goldblum and John Landis, a new restored master, the award-winning documentary B.B. King Into The Night, and the original theatrical trailer, and is available for pre-order now on Amazon.com and Shoutfactory.com.
From John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), comes the perilous – and hilarious — tale of Ed Okin (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park), an insomniac who discovers that his wife has been having an affair.
Unhappily married, unsatisfyingly employed and unsurprisingly depressed, aerospace engineer and insomniac Ed Okin needs to get away. But getting away proves to be no easy feat when Ed drives to the airport and a gorgeous smuggler, Diana (Michelle Pfeiffer), leaps his car, pursued by four murderous killers! Chased across the landscape of a “truly mythical” (Time Out) Los Angeles, Ed and Diana will encounter an endless array of intriguing nocturnal characters (played by a bevy of famous directors) and a charming English hitman (David Bowie). But will they escape their relentless pursuers? The only way to find out is by diving Into The Night!
