Rick Rosenthal's (Halloween II, Halloween: Resurrection) Bad Boys (1983) celebrates its 40th Anniversary with four slick new three-disc Mediabooks offering multiple cuts of the film with Bill Conti's soundtrack on CD.
No this is not the Will Smith / Martin Laurence / Michael Bay actioner, but it's still one of the best 80s prison thrillers featuring an up-and-coming Sean Penn delivering one of his best performances with an awesome cast including Clancy Brown, Esai Morales, Jim Moody, Alan Ruck, and Reni Santoni. This Chicago-set thriller gets to celebrate its 40th Anniversary with four new three-disc Mediabook releases from German label Turbine Medien. While it'd be great to just have the film on disc with slick packaging, Turbine is throwing in four cuts of the film!
For the first time on Blu-ray - the edition includes:
Uncut-US-Kinofassung (HD ca. 124 Min.)
Extended German theatrical version (HD approx. 112 min.)
German theatrical version/US video version (HD approx. 109 min.)
Retroversion (Open Matte 4:3) (SD-NTSC ca. 109 Min.)
Features: US trailer, director's audio commentary (optional German + English subtitles), soundtrack CD by Bill Conti (ROCKY, KARATE KID), 12-page book section on the history of the film by Tobias Hohmann
Each Mediabook is limited to a certain number of units so if you're looking to pick this up, you'll have to act fast.
These Mediabooks are up for pre-order right now - they're due to ship out on March 31st.
