Lethal Weapon: FOX Releases First Trailer

TV News - Lethal Weapon - FOX Releases First TrailerFox tonight released the first trailer for their upcoming series remake of the film franchise Lethal Weapon.


The official synopsis for the series is as follows:

When Texas cop and former Navy SEAL Martin Riggs suffers the loss of his wife and baby, he moves to Los Angeles to start anew. There, he gets partnered with LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh, who, having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid any stress in his life.


The cast for the series includes Damon Wayans Sr. (Roger Murtaugh), Clayne Crawford (Martin Riggs), Jordana Brewster (Maureen Cahill), Kevin Rahm (Captain Avery), Keesha Sharp (Trish Murtaugh) and Johnathan Fernandez (Scorsese).


Judging it by the first trailer, it doesn’t look as bad as some expected/hoped for. Granted Wayans/Crawford are going to predictably be compared to Glover/Gibson and it’s difficult to do that based on this trailer alone. The action sequences look well done and with a few tweaks to not make it an exact replica of the film franchise, it will be interesting to see what the long term season/series arc will be.
