Midnight Express 30th AE (R1) in February - Artwork added
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Midnight Express (30th Anniversary Edition) on 5th February 2008 priced at $19.94 SRP. Based on a true story and winner of two Academy Awards, Midnight Express follows the unsure fate of Billy Hayes (Brad Davis), a young American caught at the Turkish border trying to smuggle hashish. With his future in the hands of a foreign government, Hayes faces uncertainty and fear – papers from the Embassy mean little and the Turkish government is set to use him as an example to deter other drug dealers. With his options quickly dwindling, Hayes realizes the Midnight Express (inmate slang for “an escape” under cover of night) may be his last hope.
Directed by Alan Parker and written by Oliver Stone, Midnight Express also stars Bo Hopkins, Randy Quaid and John Hurt.
