Some Opinions on “Lethal Weapon” from Fox Upfront

 

UPROXX – Surefire Hit — No show on the new Fox schedule is likely to become another Empire-sized hit, but brand recognition, a good cast (Damon Wayans and Rectify‘s Clayne Crawford) and a compelling trailer make Lethal Weapon worth a look. Crawford is fantastic in the trailer, and if the show can inject some interesting serial storylines around the staid procedural formula, it could work.

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (1) – And I think Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans work, so I think Lethal Weapon has a chance to work. And remember that in order to work, Lethal Weapon doesn’t have to be as good as the first two movies in the franchise, but it should try to be better than the last two. Crawford and Wayans look to play off of each other well and the clips didn’t pander to the brand or to “I’m too old for this shit” catchphrases. This could end up just being Fox’s version of CBS’ version of Rush Hour, but I’m fooling myself into believing it’ll be something better.

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (2) – Yeah, it’s a reboot — and the last thing Hollywood needs is another unoriginal idea. But the Warner Bros. TV-produced drama was showered with praise by Fox TV Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman from the Beacon Theatre stage, and backed up privately by several others who have screened the pilot. Much is being made of star Clayne Crawford (Rectify), an eleventh-hour find who’s moving with his family from Alabama to Los Angeles for the role. In fact, he’s said to be Warner Bros. TV’s highest-testing character ever. Additionally, the pilot was the year’s highest-testing drama at the network, which will pair it with juggernaut Empire on Wednesdays.

Teaser Trailer: Convergence

You’re going to be hearing quite a lot from us about Drew Hall’s latest film”Convergence,” an independent supernatural horror/thriller hybrid from Frame 29 Films that I’ve been truly lucky enough to see in advance of its festival run and release. The reason you’ll be hearing quite a lot about it from us (and I’m sure from multiple other sources as it starts to do the rounds) is that it is really very, very good. A twisty-turny movie from start to finish, Convergence is a terrific film which I really can’t recommend highly enough for sheer entertainment value.

For now, however, we’re just going to drop the teaser trailer that sets the eerie tone of the film without giving away any spoilers. Check it out below, and do follow Drew on Twitter here and Facebook here, and check Frame 29 Films’ website here. You won’t regret it.
