Joining the upcoming “Beverly Hills Cop” films already in the pipeworks, two new Eddie Murphy films are now on the schedule from Paramount Home Entertainment. The two New York comedies Vampire in Brooklyn and Harlem Nights are scheduled for release in January.
“Vampire in Brooklyn” is the story of Witherspoon Maximillian, a member of an exclusive race that legend has called Nosferatu, the undead, the vampire. He knows no mercy and has no regret. He can transform himself in a thousand different ways. Max has ventureed to New York City in search of Rita Vender, an NYPD detective who is unaware of their unique blood bond. As Max and Julius, his hapless ghouls, attempt to transform Rita into Max’s vampiress, her devoted NYPD partner Justice finds he has much at stake in protecting her from an age-old evil.
“Harlem Nights” presents a much more down to earth comedy. When competing mobsters want to grab a piece of the action at club Sugar Ray, the city’s hottest night spot, they have no idea what kind of action they’ll get in return. But they’re up against a father and son team that won’t give up control.
Both DVDs will be available with anamorphic widescreen transfers and audio in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround 2.0. The discs will feature their respective theatrical trailers, but will be otherwise feature-free.
Coming January 29th, both of these Eddie Murphy comedies can join your collection, each priced at $24.99.
