Two-Minute Warning on DVD Next Year!

Been browsing upcoming release catalogues this arvo and had to stop and share my excitement in coming across a film I've wanted to see for ages on Vendetta's February slate: Two-Minute Warning. Directed by Larry Peerce, this 1976 thriller, about a sniper opening fire on a packed crowd at a football game, boasts what must be one of the all-time great star-studded disaster movie casts ever: Charlton Heston, John Cassavetes, Martin Balsam, Beau Bridges, David Jansen, Gena Rowlands, Walter Pidgeon, Marilyn Hassett!!! Have a peek at the cool trailer ("91000 people. 33 exit gates. 1 sniper"):

And continuing on a '70s note (my favourite note...), two other coming soon releases to look out for: The Silent Partner, heist flick starring Elliot Gould and Christopher Plummer, and The Spikes Gang, Richard Fleischer's MGM western which, as far as I know, has never been on VHS or DVD in the US! Love those guys at Shock for putting out these back catalogue MGM movies!!
