Opening in New York last Friday, and coming to select screens in Los Angeles this Friday, the 1987 cult action thriller Miami Connection is seeking Oscar gold with a new trailer from Drafthouse Films. This epic showdown between a synth-rock band of Tae Kwon Do orphans AND motorcycle-riding, coke-dealing Ninjas surely has the stuff to go toe-to-toe with Lincoln. Right? Watch and decide for yourself as Maurice Smith pleads for a Best Supporting Actor nod for his role as 'Jim'. We think the song Friends has a real chance at garnering a Best Original Song nomination, but the fact that it is three decades old might hamper its eligibility.
