Short Circuit

Preview by Jack Foley

NUMBER 5 is alive in the classic 80s comedy sci-fi adventure Short Circuit, which comes to Blu-ray for the first time courtesy of Second Sight Film.

An experimental military robot escapes after being struck by lightening, giving it human intelligence.

He escapes and finds a home with madcap Stephanie Speck (Ally Sheedy), who believes he is an alien, but hot on his trail are scientists Newton Crosby (Steve Guttenburg) and his assistant (Fisher Stevens), who must get to their creation before the army, who plan to put Number 5 out of service permanently.

This hugely entertaining adventure makes its Blu-ray debut, along with a DVD release featuring some great special features and will be released on November 19, 2012.

Special features include a commentary by director John Badham and writers S.S. Wilson and Brent Maddock as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette.

Follow Number 5 in his zany escapades in Short Circuit, a fantastic family film that will be the perfect gift for kids of all ages this Christmas.
