The action classics 48 Hrs. and Another 48 Hrs., starring Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte, will arrive on Blu-ray in the Paramount Presents line July 6 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Both films have been newly remastered from 4K film transfers and are presented with new bonus content featuring insight from director Walter Hill along with vintage behind-the-scenes footage.
In 48 Hrs., Nolte is Jack Cates, a rough-edged police inspector on the hunt for two vicious cop-killers. Unlikely ride-along con Reggie Hammond (Murphy) is given 48-hour leave from prison to help Cates on the case. Both men pursue two very different goals in a short amount of time.
This is the Blu-ray debut of Another 48 Hrs., which is set eight years after the first 48 hours of mayhem. Reggie is about to be released from the pen. But, after the bus transporting him flips over, Cates enlists the ex-con for another seemingly impossible two-day task to nail an elusive drug lord with a price on Reggie’s head.
The limited-edition Paramount Presents Blu-ray Discs come in collectible packaging featuring a foldout image of each film’s theatrical poster and an interior spread with key movie moments. The discs also include access to a digital copy of the film along with the theatrical trailer.
Special features on 48 Hrs. include “Filmmaker Focus: Director Walter Hill on 48 Hrs.”; the theatrical trailer; and “Space Kid,” the original 1966 animated short that makes an appearance in the film.
