Synopsis:

In talking about his influences on his latest film Baby Driver, director Edgar Wright refers to The Holy Trinity of Nineties L.A. action-crime thrillers: Point Break, Reservoir Dogs, and Heat. There’s traces of all three across his new feature, so it’s a real treat to have one of that trio, Michael Mann’s iconic thriller, return to our screen this summer. Heat sees an absorbing duel between two men - one the icy cool mastermind of a criminal gang specialising in high-risk, high-yield heists (Robert De Niro), the other the dogged detective assigned to his case (Al Pacino). The two Hollywood greats make for an outstanding clash.
