Mario Van Peebles is back in the saddle on June 2nd when his real life hostage thriller A Clear Shot hits DVD and Digital and we have an exclusive, never before seen clip from the film courtesy of Uncork’d Entertainment. Check it out below!
Starring acclaimed actor Mario Van Peebles, A Clear Shot is inspired by the true story of the 1991 Good Guys Electronics Store siege in Sacramento, California, the largest hostage siege negotiation ever attempted in the United States.
An electronic store erupts into chaos as four gunmen storm the premises. Rick Gomez, Sacramento Police Departments’ top negotiator, realizes he needs to talk down the gunmen and keep everyone safe, all while juggling government politics. The gunmen leader doesn’t want to hurt anyone, but his brother is a different story. A peaceful surrender quickly turns this sleepy city into a national tragedy.
A Clear Shot examines a bizarre turn of events as law enforcement attempt to save the hostages, as well the emotional trials and social pressures of immigrant assimilation into the American culture.
From writer-director Nick Leisure, and starring Mario Van Peebles (New Jack City, Posse), Mandela Van Peebles (Jigsaw), Jessica Meza (“General Hospital”), David Fernandez Jr (End of Watch), Marshal Hilton (Echoes of Fear), and Glenn Plummer (“Sons of Anarchy”), A Clear Shot comes to DVD and Digital June 2 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
The new and exclusive clip which features some of the tense drama is called 3:59 PM and you can watch it directly below and make sure to check out A Clear Shot next Tuesday!
