You know what Jack Burton always says, if you can find a Blu-Ray version of “Big Trouble in Little China”, then by God you should buy it right away, otherwise how dare you call yourself cool. Yup, Fox is finally releasing John Carpenter and Kurt Russell’s insanely entertaining and highly quotable ’80s movie on Blu-Ray later this year (August 4). DVD cover art for the Blu-Ray and specs below. I actually own the regular DVD, and the commentary by Russell and Carpenter is just awesome. Of course, it probably helps that Russell sounds drunk as hell during it. I’m not saying he was, but I’m just saying.
Directed by thrill master John Carpenter, this edgo-of-your seat adventrue stars Kurt Russell as Jack Burton, a tough-talking, wisecracking truck driver whose hum-drum life on the road takes a sudden supernatural tailspin when his best friend’s fiancee is kidnapped. Speeding to the rescue, Jack finds himself deep beneath San Francisco’s Chinatown, in a murky, creature-filled world ruled by Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who mercilessly presides over an empire of spirits. Dodging demons and facing baffling terrors, Jack battles his way through Lo Pan’s dark domain in a full-throttle, action-riddled ride to rescue the girl. Co-starring Kim Cattrall, this effects-filled sci-fi spectacle speeds to an incredible, twist-taking finish.
