Part X: Epilogue
Menace II Society was released on Wednesday, May 26th, 1993. This gave it an extended five day opening that also included Memorial Day weekend. Alas, this was also the same frame that Sylvester Stallone decided to launch a comeback. Cliffhanger was an expensive Die Hard clone that would also be the first summer blockbuster out of the gate. Surely, a low budget “urban” film didn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell against such a behemoth.
