From the VHS box:
A creature from another world and this time Schwarzenegger is the prey!
Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this action-packed adventure story of fighting men pitted against an unseen enemy, a force more powerful than their fiercest weapons. Recruited by the CIA to rescue hostages held by guerrilla fighters in a Central American country, Schwarzenegger and his men encounter an enemy unimaginably more deadly than any on Earth — because the Predator is not of this Earth. Packed with spectacular special effects and combat scenes of gut-wrenching power, PREDATOR is the most terrifying — and most exciting — Schwarzenegger movie yet.

48 HRS. on VHS. Starring Nick Nolte, Eddie Murphy. With Annette O’Toole, Frank McRae, James Remar, David Patrick Kelly, Sonny Landham, Brion James, Denise Crosby. Directed by Walter Hill. 1982.
From the box:
Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy make one of the most unusual and entertaining teams ever in Walter Hill’s roller-coaster thriller, 48 HRS. Nolte is a rough-edged cop after two vicious cop-killers. He can’t do it without the help of a smooth and dapper Murphy, who is serving time for a half-million dollar robbery. This unlikely partnership trades laughs as often as punches as both pursue their separate goals: Nolte wants the villains; Murphy wants his money and some much-needed female companionship. Watch for Murphy’s hilarious scene in a redneck country-western bar–you’ll want to see it again and again.
