(February 24, 2012 – Burbank, CA) – It’s been 25 years since the action buddy film, “Lethal Weapon,” became a phenomenon in its genre and spawned a legacy of films on the heels of its success. Now Warner Home Video (WHV) will debut the ultimate “Lethal Weapon Collection” as a five-disc gift set containing all four original theatrical releases in the series (“Lethal Weapon,” “Lethal Weapon 2,” “Lethal Weapon 3” and “Lethal Weapon 4”). The franchise, directed by Richard Donner (“Superman,” “Goonies”) and starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as L.A. detectives Riggs and Murtaugh, is one of the most successful in film franchise history with a worldwide box-office gross and home entertainment sales totaling more than $1 billion. The “Lethal Weapon Collection” – a perfect Father’s Day gift – includes four featurettes (released for the first time in the U.S.) about the genesis, legacy and making of each film in the franchise. Also included are deleted scenes, outtakes and two music videos; one starring Sting and Eric Clapton. Lastly, also included are 2010 cast interviews with Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Rene Russo, Joe Pesci and Donner. With two hours of explosive content, it’s sure to be a firecracker of a set. About The Films: “Lethal Weapon” (1987)
Forced to form an uneasy alliance, two L.A. cops – Veteran cop Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) and Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) his new young partner who doesn’t care if he sees another birthday - begin to unravel the mystery of an apparent suicide that turns out to be murder and more.

“Lethal Weapon 2” (1989)
Riggs wows the pretties of a hotel spa before getting to Leo Getz (Joe Pesci). Murtaugh receives bad bodywork news from an auto repairman after his beleaguered station wagon sees some Riggs-piloted street action. Plus, feisty Leo shares a newly included scene in which he recalls a suspect's address by complex spins of numbers that, well, no one can tell it like Leo. And no one would follow his lead but Riggs and Murtaugh. It's police procedure, Lethal style. And it's yours to enjoy as the duo draws a bead on criminals hiding behind diplomatic immunity.

Lethal Weapon 4 (1998)
Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return, with Pesci again riding comedy shotgun as chatterbox Leo. Murtaugh is still the family man. Riggs is still the gonzo loose cannon and - what's this? - family man. His ‘will-he/won't he’ marriage to Cole (Rene Russo) is one of the new wrinkles in this powerhouse crowd-pleaser that also stars comedy favorite Chris Rock and international action star Jet Li. This sequel involves an action packed battle with a Chinese ganglord.
