There's going to be another release of Orson Welles' The Lady from Shanghai (1947), this time from the usually terrible Mill Creek, sourced from the same 4K restoration as the TCM release, but without the extras.

Jonathan Kaplan's Truck Turner (1974) on blu-ray from Kino



Truck Turner (Hayes) is a football star-turned-bounty hunter who's tracking a sadistic pimp on the mean streets of Los Angeles. Armed with his brute strength and ace cool partner (Alan Weeks), Truck closes in on his mark. But a tragic accident soon changes all the rules, and suddenly the hunter finds himself being hunted by the city's deadliest hired killers! Truck strikes back in a series of wild car chases, shootouts and bone-crunching fistfights, knowing that the battles can lead to only one place: an intense struggle to the death against Harvard Blue (Kotto), the brutal leader of L.A.'s organized crime syndicate.

Split Second (1992) - Amazon UK

Set in the year 2008, in a largely flooded London, the waterlogged and rat-infested capital is being terrorised by a monstrous serial killer, who has resurfaced after years of inactivity. Maverick policeman Harold Stone (Hauer) is on his trail, but the killer seems bent on destroying Stone, his girlfriend Michelle (Cattrall) and his new partner Dick Durkin (Neil Duncan).   




Haven't seen this but it looks like Blade Runner and that's good enough for me
