It will be a weekend to remember… if they survive it!

The host of an investigative news show is convinced by the CIA that the friends he has invited to a weekend in the country are engaged in a conspiracy that threatens national security.

Based on the novel of the same name by Robert Ludlum, this political thriller features an all-star cast including Rutger Hauer, John Hurt, Burt Lancaster, Dennis Hopper, Meg Foster, Helen Shaver, Chris Sarandon and Craig T. Nelson.

Sam Peckinpah’s final film was initially taken away from his control and released broadly in a re-edited (shortened) version. This new special edition release presents brand new 2k scans from newly sourced 35mm prints of Sam Peckinpah’s personal directors cut negative, along with the Theatrical Cut.

This stunning new release will give finally the film a well overdue opportunity for reappraisal.
