Shout Factory has two new Blu-ray Steelbooks on the way. Walter Hill's cult favorite Streets of Fire and the most bodacious sequel of all-time Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey are coming home on November 20. Streets of Fire is a two-disc set, featuring a new 2k scan, and a plethora of special features, including two feature-length documentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, music videos, and more.
Bogus Journey (criminally underrated in my book), is a little more bare-bones than I was hoping. The disc features two audio commentaries, and some cast interviews. I do like the Steelbook itself however, and as a collector it will look great on my shelf.
Streets of Fire (35th Anniversary Edition Steelbook)
Amid a brooding rock & roll landscape, the Bombers motorcycle gang, led by the vicious Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe, John Wick), kidnap diva Ellen Aim (Diane Lane, Man of Steel). Her hope for rescue lies with unlikely heroes: soldier of fortune Tom Cody (Michael Paré, Bad Moon) and his sidekick, the two-fisted beer-guzzling McCoy (Amy Madigan, The Dark Half). Joined by Ellen's manager, Billy Fish (Rick Moranis, Ghostbusters), the trio plunges headfirst into a world of rain-splattered streets, hot cars, and deadly assassins.
This cult favorite features a razor-sharp cast and original songs written by Jim Steinman, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and Ry Cooder and performed by The Blasters and The Fixx. Directed by cult filmmaker Walter Hill (The Warriors, Southern Comfort, 48 Hrs.), Streets of Fire is a rock & roll shotgun blast to the senses.
