The double feature Blu-ray is due out this summer.
In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is preparing to release 'The Pope of Greenwich Village/Desperate Hours' on Blu-ray on June 2.
The Pope of Greenwich Village - Turn up the Sinatra, put on a leather jacket, and slip into "a rollicking, high-voltage movie that produces tears of laughter" (New York Daily News). Mickey Rourke (The Rainmaker), Eric Roberts (Runaway Train) and Daryl Hannah (Splash) "create emotion-charged characters who tingle with energy and play with conviction" (The Hollywood Reporter) in this modern-day classic that's as robust and powerful as Italian espresso!
In New York's Little Italy, smooth-talking hustler Charlie (Rourke) works in a restaurant and dreams of one day buying his own with his girlfriend Diane (Hannah). His wiry wheeler-dealer cousin Paulie (Roberts) waits tables, skims money off checks and is always scheming to score big. But they're all about to pull a scam on the wrong guy - Bed Bug Eddie (Burt Young, Rocky), the Mafia king of Greenwich Village! Now these small time con men are in big-time trouble - trouble so big that even their mobster uncle might not be able to save them!
Desperate Hours - From Academy Award-winning director Michael Cimino comes this taut psychological thriller about a family held hostage in their own home. Starring Mickey Rourke, Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins, Mimi Rogers and Kelly Lynch, this nail-biting action film grabs you by the throat and leaves you gasping in terror. Prepare yourself. The Desperate Hours have begun.
In dire need of a hideout, escaped convict Michael Bosworth (Rouke) uses his charming smile to gain entry into the posh home of Nora and Tim Cornell (Rogers and Hopkins) and their two children. While waiting for his beautiful lawyer- turned- accomplice (Lynch) to arrive, Bosworth's smile soon explodes into homicidal rage when the Cornells desperately try to fight back. Holding the family at gunpoint and ruthlessly pitting husband against wife, Bosworth's fury escalates into a shocking night of terror and cold-blooded murder. Finally, the family is forced to take a stand that will either destroy them... or unite them as never before.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include a trailer, TV spots, and Meet the Makers.
