Eddie Murphy Ignites the Screen in Two Newly Remastered Action-Comedy Classics

1.jpg 2.jpg

Latest Additions to the Paramount Presents Line Arrive on Blu-ray™ July 6, 2021



Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte push the limits of both action and comedy in the acclaimed classics 48 HRS. and ANOTHER 48 HRS., arriving separately on Blu-ray in the Paramount Presents line July 6, 2021 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 to look back at the making of his high-octane classics. This is the Blu-ray debut of ANOTHER 48 HRS. 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 each disc are detailed below:



48 HRS.

  • · Filmmaker Focus: Director Walter Hill on 48 HRS.
    • · Filmmaker Focus: Director Walter Hill on ANOTHER 48 HRS.
    • · Theatrical Trailer
    • · Space Kid—original 1966 animated short, which makes an appearance in the film

      ANOTHER 48 HRS.

    • · Filmmaker Focus: Director Walter Hill on ANOTHER 48 HRS.
    • · Theatrical Trailer

      48 HRS. Synopsis
      Nick Nolte is unforgettable as Jack Cates, a rough-edged Inspector on the hunt for two vicious cop-killers. Unlikely ride-along con Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy), is given 48-hour leave from prison to help Cates on the case. The laughs fly almost as much as the punches, as both men pursue two very different goals in a short amount of time.

      ANOTHER 48 HRS. Synopsis
      Eight years after the first 48 hours of mayhem, Reggie (Murphy) is about to be released from the pen. But, after the bus transporting him flips over (17 times), Inspector Jack Cates (Nolte) enlists the ex-con for another seemingly impossible two-day task to nail an elusive drug lord with a price on Reggie’s head.

Cannot wait for 48 Hours. That old BD is probably the worst mastered disc in my collection.

I had the original BD of 48 HRS. and gave that up for the same reason as Dave mentioned:

I'm looking forward to this one as well. I'll also admit I'm kind of surprised that the BD for Another 48 HRS. won't include deleted scenes, as I recall that Paramount trimmed 25 minutes from the movie prior to being released.

Oh my.

Will definitely be getting this.

Glad I never bought the badly reviewed previous release of 48hrs as I nearly gave in.

I don't think I have seen the sequel.

Worth a punt?

Everyone is going to have a different opinion.

However, the sequel is a shadow of the original film. It feels like it's just going through the motions and it lacks the energy and humor of the original. Eddie even tries to repeat the infamous "Roxanne" bit and it falls flat.

Been some time since I have seen it, but those are my memories

Thanks.

Probably a good reason I have not seen it, then.

I disliked the sequel so much that I never bother to own it on any home video format.

Everything Ronald said about the movie is fair. I don't think I'm quite as negative on it as he or Robert are, but it's definitely one of those unnecessary sequels that tries to be a carbon copy of the original and doesn't measure up. I don't recall it being outright awful (like, say, Beverly Hills Cop III), but there's just no need for it to exist. That said, I also haven't seen it in decades and might dislike it more if I watch it again. In any case, I'd advise a rental before a purchase.

I was out of town mid-July 1990 for concerts with little to do during the day, so I went to a different movie each of the 5 days.

I saw:

-Robocop 2
-Quick Change
-Another 48 Hours
-Betsy's Wedding
-Total Recall

"R2" was total crap. "TR" wasn't great but was fun. "QC" is a classic. I have little memory of "BW".

And I don't really remember much about "Another" either, though I know it disappointed me. I don't think I hated it like I hated "R2", but I don't think I enjoyed it either.

Not sure I've seen it in the nearly 31 years since then, so I'll be curious to watch it again!
