This past weekend marked the theatrical release of Jon Watts’ Cop Car, which sped into just three locations on Friday. The thriller expands to more theaters this coming weekend, and it’s also soon headed to home video courtesy of Universal Pictures. Read on for all the details!
From the Press Release:
A corrupt small-town sheriff is on the hunt for two runaway kids who took his car on a joy ride in Cop Car, an unnervingly funny thriller now available on Digital HD and On Demand and debuting on Blu-ray and DVD on September 29, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Starring Golden Globe-winner Kevin Bacon (Footloose, Mystic River) and directed by Jon Watts (the upcoming Untitled Spiderman Reboot), Cop Car is “a midnight movie blast!” according to Russ Fischer of Slashfilm.
When a pair of 10-year-olds find an abandoned cop car in a field and take it for a joyride, it seems like they could kill themselves at any moment. But things only get worse when the small-town sheriff goes looking for his missing car—and the illicit cargo he left in the trunk—and the kids find themselves at the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse they don’t understand. The only way out is to go as fast as their cop car can take them.
Grossing a high per-theater average opening weekend, Cop Car will shift into 55 theaters in 45 U.S. markets on August 14th.
