The 1994 film “No Escape“ starring the late great Ray Liotta is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc for the first time [in the U.S.] on October 11th via Unearthed Films, under the Unearthed Classics division. The science fiction film [set in the year 2022] was directed by Martin Campbell, also known for directing “Casino Royale” (2006). It co-starred Lance Henriksen, Stuart Wilson, Kevin Dillon, Ernie Hudson, and the late Michael Lerner.
The tech specs for the release include a 1080p HD presentation in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio with options of both lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround and uncompressed LPCM 2.0 Stereo sound mixes. Unearthed Films sent along with some promo images that seem to be screenshots [found below] from the new transfer of the film in HD. They, oddly enough though are 1918 pixels instead of 1920 pixels wide though for some reason. So, technically these are not in full HD just by 2 pixels in width? Still, it gives you an idea of how it should look, which is rather impressive.
