'Shoot first, Die Later' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Mar 12, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Fernando Di Leo's 1974 crime drama is bound for Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, RaroVideo is working on 'Shoot first, Die Later' for Blu-ray on May 28.

Desperately sought after and never before released worldwide Rarovideo is proud to be releasing the tough, exciting, dramatically potent, well acted and action packed film, 'Shoot first, Die Later' which is known as one of the most impressive Italian crime/police movies ever made. Luc Merenda gives the performance of his career as a highly regarded police detective who is taking syndicate money in exchange for departmental favors. His father, a simple man, also works for the department but on a lower rung; he isn't jealous of his son, but rather proud of him, little knowing that he's a crooked cop. A series of events leads the young detective to ask his father for a favor (he wants a certain police report that is desired by the syndicate) and it doesn't take long for the detective's father to realize his son is on the take... which leads to numerous complications. .

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will have a new HD transfer from the original 35mm negative print and supplements will include: Original trailer; A fully illustrated booklet; Documentary - The Master of the Game (Il Padrone del Gioco); and Documentary - The Second Round of the Game (La seconda mano del gioco).

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.95.
