To live and die with ’80s-era movie trailers

Since William L. Petersen‘s birthday wasn’t too long ago, here’s a 1985 teaser/trailer for To Live and Die in L.A., a movie that reminded a lot of people of what Miami Vice would have been if it was good. Also notable are Willem Dafoe as the smooth counterfeiter, back before his face looked like something off a totem pole, and the Wang Chung soundtrack that tethers this movie to its decade of origin. Thankfully, the trailer itself is too epileptic to expose how dated the movie is. Still, enjoy it, and maybe next year they’ll give us that car chase in reverse.
