The Blues Brothers

Everybody needs somebody in John Landis' classic 1980 action comedy, based on characters created by actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd on the television series Saturday Night Live. When Jake Blues (Belushi) is released from prison, he and brother Elwood (Aykroyd) pay a visit to the orphanage where they grew up and learn the building is under threat of closure due to non-payment of taxes. So the siblings concoct a hare-brained scheme to raise the money by reuniting their old band and staging a concert. En route, they cross paths with a deranged bandleader (Charles Napier) and the cops, and a host of famous faces in cameo roles including James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. The plot unfolds at breakneck speed, reaching a crescendo with one of cinema's greatest car chases. The Blues Brothers is released in digital cinemas for a limited time.
