|.||"Lethal Weapon 4" -
is the latest movie of the series. We left Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh
after escaping death from the previous movie. Here they are put on a hit
list by The Triads. With mercinaries are on their tail, they team up with
Leo Getz, Lorna Cole and Chris Rock to attempt to put an end to the Triads.
Shot in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
Production - Leathal Weapon IV production budget has been reported to be $115 million to $130 million. The filmmakers are under a time crunch to get the movie released, in large part because the release dates were selected long in advance at the time the producton was approved. This big budget film is being watched closely since Warner Bros. has been indefinitely postponing or canceling other big budget pictures lately (see The Wall Street Journal, Thursday 23 April 1998 Page B1, "Warner Bros. Cancel Films, Cuts Budget") such as Superman Lives starring Nicolas Cage and I Am Legend with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

World Premiere - World premiere Tuesday 7 July at Mann Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The Lethal Weapon 4 cast will watch as Danny Glover does the hand and footprint in the cement thing. Ceremony starts at 5:00 pm. Premiere begins at 6:00. Public is invited to join the crowd.
Trailing Bits 14 June from a fan - I would not even guess what
the budget is. They are still doing post-production on the film-working
long, hard hours to meet the date of July 10th. Saw a trailer and the film
looks great. Audience reaction to the trailers has been great. It'll be
awesome. Have a "Lethal" summer!
