Big Trouble

This offbeat black comedy from independent film pioneer John Cassavetes has been given a serviceable presentation in this DVD release. Big Trouble has been transferred to disc in its original widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, letterboxed on conventional televisions and enhanced for 16 x 9 playback on widescreen monitors. The audio, in English, has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, while optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish have been included. The film's original trailer has been added as a bonus.
