What you may need to know:

1. It’s an action drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981. The film follows the lives of an immigrant and his family whose business keeps running into corruption and violence.

2. 1981 was the most violent year in New York City history with 637,451 reported felonies that year. 19,475 1,832 of those were murders.

3. Oscar Isaac replaced Javier Bardem in the lead after Bardem and the film’s director J.C Chandor fell out over the “direction of the script”. The film was also still without finance at that point.

4. This is Chandor’s own script and he really impressed with his two previous productions, Margin Call (2011) and All Is Lost (2013). “Elegant and handsome” Jeremy Irons is a most impressive bastard in Margin Call.

5. Co-star Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac were classmates in Julliard, the School for Performing arts in New York.

6. The film sneaks in just ahead of the Oscars deadline which is midnight on December 31. Aye Aye!

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: Escape from…Escape From New York (1981)

Release Date: New Years Eve

    I think the murder figure you have quoted is incorrect, from the article:

    “There were also fewer murders – 1,675, an 8.6 percent decrease from 1981.”

    “2. 1981 was the most violent year in New York City history with 637,451 reported felonies that year. 19,475 of those were murders.”

    – 19,475 murders in NYC in one year. Did that not sound strange to you lads?!
