Paramount Pictures will reissue director Brian De Palma’s Snake Eyes with Nicolas Cage on Blu-ray on May 18th. It doesn’t look like they included any special features. But you can check out the killer cover art below!

Cage stars as Detective Rick Santoro, who has never played by the rules. When he attends a high-profile boxing match with his friend (Gary Sinise), he witnesses a terrorist assassinate Kirkland. Despite a lockdown on the arena, key witness Julia Costello (Carla Gugino) escapes. And Santoro begins to suspect Kirkland’s death is part of a much conspiracy that involves boxing rivals and a beautiful stranger.

De Palma (Carrie, Mission: Impossible, Scarface) directs from a screenplay written by David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible) from a story by De Palma. Cage stars with Gary Sinise, Carla Gugino, John Heard, Stan Shaw, and Kevin Dunn.

It sports a 41% over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus reads: Snake Eyes has a number of ingredients that promise a trashy fun time; unfortunately, they’re lost in an energetic and stylish thriller with a frustratingly hollow core
