MIAMI BLUES

COLLECTOR’S EDITION

STARRING Alec Baldwin, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Fred Ward

TO BE RELEASED ON BLU-RAY FOR THE FIRST TIME

MiamiB-bluAVAILABLE FROM SHOUT! FACTORY APRIL 28, 2015

Los Angeles, CA – “Edgy! Dazzling! Irreverent!” That’s how The Hollywood Reporter has described Miami Blues. Shout! Factory has announced the film will now be released on Blu-ray for the first time on April 28, 2015, and will fea­ture new inter­views with Alec Baldwin, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Brace your­self… this intox­i­cat­ing “cock­tail with rum and cyanide” (Time) is at once “bru­tal, fun­ny, unpre­dictable and a bit unhinged” (Newsweek). Fred Ward, Alec Baldwin and Jennifer Jason Leigh star in this off­beat black com­e­dy about a mur­der­ing thief, his sim­ple-mind­ed wife and the den­ture-wear­ing cop clos­ing in on his trail.

Veteran crim­i­nal Frederick Frenger, Jr. (Baldwin) has moved to Miami to get a fresh start… at rob­bing a whole new set of peo­ple. But when his street­walk­er-gone-straight wife (Leigh) begins to sus­pect his crim­i­nal behav­ior, and an obsessed cop (Ward) begins to close in, he will need a lot more than luck and a bogus badge to escape a cross­fire hot­ter than the bar­rel of a smok­ing gun.
