Vestron Video’s 1987 action Western Extreme Prejudice, starring Nick Nolte, is being released on Blu-ray Disc May 17 from Lionsgate.
In addition to Nolte, the film, directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hrs.) with a story co-written by Academy Award nominee John Milius (1979, Best Writing/Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium, Apocalypse Now), also stars Powers Boothe, Maria Conchita Alonso (The Running Man, Predator 2, Spread), Michael Ironside (Starship Troopers, Total Recall, Top Gun) and Rip Torn.
The gritty, modern Western follows Texas Ranger Jack Benteen (Nolte) who locks horns with a former friend, Cash Bailey (Boothe), now a ruthless drug kingpin. Though they’re on opposite sides of the law, they share a love interest in the sensual Sarita (Alonso). When a crew of rogue soldiers descends upon the border town for an off-the-books mission, all roads lead to a bloody, to-the-death showdown, as loyalties shift and the lines between good and evil are blurred.
Special features include audio commentary with film historians C. Courtney Joyner and Henry Parke; isolated score selections with an audio interview from music historian John Takis; interviews with Hill, Ironside, actor Clancy Brown, and director of photography Matthew F. Leonetti; trailers; TV spots; and a still gallery.
