Preview by Jack Foley
WRITER-director Troy Duffy’s eagerly awaited sequel to the cult classic The Boondock Saints blasts its way onto DVD on May 3 when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.
The tough, stylized, vigilante-justice saga follows the boys when they return to Boston after being framed for the murder of a priest. Joined by a new accomplice, the Saints exact vengeance on those responsible and, at the same time, discover a deeper plot rooted in their own family’s legacy of violence.
Joining original cast members Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, David Della Rocco, and Billy Connolly are Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek, Brothers), Julie Benz (TV’s Dexter, Rambo), Peter Fonda and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club).
The DVD special features on The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day include two commentary tracks with filmmakers and cast, deleted scenes, and two behind-the-scenes featurettes: the making-of documentary Unprecedented Access: Behind the Scenes and Billy Connolly and Troy Duffy: Unedited, a multi-camera, off-the-cuff conversation in which they discuss the success of the first movie, their evolutions as filmmaker and actor, and what they hope to capture on their second outing.
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day will be available on DVD for £19.99.
From Troy Duffy, writer and director of The Boondock Saints, comes the eagerly awaited sequel to the tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery).
The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives.
When word spreads that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible.
With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was written and directed by Troy Duffy from a story by Troy Duffy & Taylor Duffy. Chris Brinker and Don Carmody produced with Lloyd Segan and Rob Fried serving as executive producers.
