'Assault on Precinct 13: Collector's Edition' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Jul 30, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

John Carpenter's classic action thriller is ambushing Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is preparing 'Assault on Precinct 13: Collector's Edition' for Blu-ray. An exact date has not been announced, but the title is expected to hit stores in November.

John Carpenter directs this tense remake of the classic Howard Hawks western 'Rio Bravo.' Set in modern-day Los Angeles, it concerns a mob of crazy guerilla gunmen who lay siege to a soon-to-be-closed police station, trapping a single cop (Austin Stoker) and a couple of secretaries (Laurie Zimmer and Nancy Loomis) inside. The gunmen unleash wave upon wave of attacks on the beleaguered station, but the cop proves himself a resourceful foe.

Specs, supplements, and suggested list price have not been revealed yet.
