LETHAL WEAPON 4

Introduction

Riggs and Murtaugh are back.

The blockbuster "Lethal Weapon" series, starring MEL GIBSON and DANNY GLOVER as partnered police detectives Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, began in 1987. From the moment they encountered these two unconventional cops, audiences were hooked on a cinematic roller-coaster of action and humor; the movie became an overnight international hit.

Rarely has an action movie created heroes who connected so directly with the viewing public. The crowds who cheered "Lethal Weapon" felt as though they knew Riggs and Murtaugh personally -- and they wanted to know them better. In 1989 "Lethal Weapon 2" added JOE PESCI in a scene-stealing role as the fast-talking Leo Getz and out-earned its predecessor. "Lethal Weapon 3," the highest-grossing movie in the group, opened in 1992 and introduced RENE RUSSO in a starring role as Martin Riggs' love interest and fellow daredevil detective, Lorna Cole. Since then, audiences have clamored for the return of Riggs, Murtaugh, Cole and Getz on-screen.

Now they're getting their wish.

In "Lethal Weapon 4," the quartet is joined by junior detective Lee Butters (actor-comedian CHRIS ROCK), as the team struggles to unravel a series of crimes involving immigrant smuggling and counterfeiting. Their leads converge on a man named Wah Sing Ku (Chinese action star JET LI), a fiercely disciplined Asian Triad princeling bent on a complex and deadly mission.
