Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball is hitting Blu-ray Hi-Def, DVD and digital download January 19, 2010. Executive produced by Joe Carnahan (Narc), the writer/director behind Smokin’ Aces, and directed by P.J. Pesce (Lost Boys: The Tribe), Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball features the return of infamous assassins Lazlo Soot and the Tremor Brothers from the original film. Both the Blu-ray and DVD editions include the rated and unrated versions of the movie.
Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball stars Tom Berenger, Clayne Crawford, Martha Higareda, Ernie Hudson, Michael Parks, Autumn Reeser and Vinnie Jones, as well as returning stars from the original theatrical release Tommy Flanagan, Maury Sterling and Christopher Michael Holley.
In the follow-up, Walter Weed (Berenger) is an unassuming desk jockey at the FBI when the Bureau uncovers a plot to assassinate him. A team of degenerate, psychotic assassins dispatched by mystery man Hal Leuco to win a huge bounty includes a resourceful beauty who has a unique method of killing her prey (Higareda), a power-tool wielding psychopath (Jones) and a deadly master of disguise (Flanagan). Also in the hunt is the fan-favorite Tremor family from the original film, featuring nymphomaniacal gun-nut (Reeser) and her lethal kinfolk (Sterling, Parks and C. Ernst Harth). Baker (Crawford), the agent in charge of the operation, puts himself and his team in the line of fire to defend Weed, but it’s not until the smoke clears on the film’s explosive climax that the surprising identity of the plot’s mastermind is revealed.
