Hello, this is Dom…

For their upcoming releases this April, here’s what Second Sight Films had to say:

In Bruges

The hilariously dark hitman movie with a heart, In Bruges, gets its Standard-Edition Blu-ray release, complete with special features on 19 April from Second Sight. The film from award-winning director Martin McDonagh (Three Bill Boards Outside Ebbing Missouri), the film was originally released in 2008 and has gone on to earn cult status. It sees Brendan Gleeson (Cold Mountain) and Colin Farrell (The Lobster) in career defining, critically acclaimed performances, as a pair of hired heavies.

Flight of the Navigator

Take a journey back in time to re-live family sci-fi classic Flight of the Navigator starring Joey CramerSarah Jessica Parker and Paul Reubens, as it arrives on Standard Edition Blu-ray in an  outstanding restored version, that was supervised by director Randal Kleiser (Grease, The Blue Lagoon), on 19 April from Second Sight. 

The year is 1978 and 12-year-old David Freeman is knocked unconscious while playing. He wakes up and discovers it’s now 1986 and he’s been missing for eight years. NASA believes he’s been abducted by aliens and want to use him for their research. But with the guidance of a strange unseen entity he discovers a hidden spaceship and with the help of MAX the computer sets off on an incredible mission to get back to the past where he belongs…

World on a Wire

Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s dystopian sci-fi epic World on a Wire was way ahead of its time, with fascinating themes that would later be explored in films such as The Matrix. Now this hugely influential classic arrives in a stunningly restored Standard Edition Blu-ray on 26 April from Second Sight.

Simulacron 1 is a highly advanced project, designed to elevate conventional computer technology to a new level by creating a virtual reality inhabited by computer-generated people or ‘identity units’. When the head of the project dies mysteriously after showing signs of mental disturbance, Dr Stiller becomes his successor. As he begins to probe deeper into Simulacron, the line between the real and virtual world becomes increasingly blurred and his own existence is questioned.

Upgrade

The critically acclaimed breakout Sci-Fi hit, Upgrade from director Leigh Whannell (InsidiousSaw) and the team behind Get Out, gets a new Blu-ray release in Standard Edition complete with an enhanced slew of special features. 

In a near-future world, where technology controls everything, technophobe Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green – The InvitationSpider-Man: Homecoming) is the victim of a brutal mugging that leaves his wife dead and him paralysed. A reclusive billionaire inventor offers him an experimental cure, an A.I. implant called STEM. Grey accepts and is immediately transformed into an unstoppable killing machine with enhanced strength and agility. Now it’s payback time. Genre specialist Blumhouse and the visionary creator of the Saw franchise team up to create an instant cyberpunk classic.
