1991 box office bomb Hudson Hawk gets a second chance tonight at 7:30 at the Aero's 20th-anniversary screening. Bruce Willis plays a criminal mastermind blackmailed out of retirement to help industrialists take over the world via stolen crystals. A transmutation machine is involved. Also, Leonardo Da Vinci. Schedules permitting, director Michael Lehmann and writer Daniel Waters will be on hand afterward to explain (er, discuss). We're guessing Willis, who co-wrote the screenplay, is less likely to appear.
