  • Mel Gibson and Danny Glover reteam as a pair of Los Angeles police detectives in this hilarious, slam-bang sequel.

Trying to put Justice Department attorney Alice Sutton (Julia Roberts) in the know, he’s run out of her office. Soon both will run for their lives. 

    The two stars conspire for suspense, romance and twists that click like a rush-hour taxi meter. A crackpot theory in the newsletter Jerry publishes may be true. Cryptic Dr. Jonas (Patrick Stewart) and his men aim to quash it — and them too. “I don’t know what I know but I know that it’s big,” Jerry says. What we know is that Conspiracy Theory is big entertainment.

  • Robert Rath is the best hitman around, but the code and sense of duty that once were part of his deadly career are lost in a post-Cold War world of free-lance guns. He wants out. Not so Miguel Bain, a driven killer who knows how to claim the top spot of his shadowy profession: eliminate risk.

    The action s hard and fast when Sylvester Stallone as Rath and Antonio Banderas as Bain square off as Assassins. Julianna Moore plays the wily hacker swept into the duo’s fierce running battle. Director Richard Donner infuses this take with exciting action riffs plunging you into a world where what counts is not making the first move, but surviving the last.

  • Ante up – for laughter and action aplenty! Mel Gibson is sly gambler Bret Maverick, Jodie Foster is a charming scam artist and James Garner (the original Bret Maverick from the Emmy-winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in Maverick, the crowd-pleasing hit that deals you a winning hand.

    With more twists than a switchback trail and more sleights of hand than a shell game, Maverick is rollicking proof of how the West was fun. A riverboat poker tourney promises a winner-take-all $500,000... and Bret aims to be the winner who does the taking! But first he must cope with the hangman’s noose, a runaway stage, a wily Indian chief, outlaws, ingrates, a bagful of rattlesnakes and more close calls than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. So don’t miss the excitement. The jokers – Gibson, Foster and Garner – are wild!

Risks are everywhere: a high-rise explodes into dust, a housing tract goes up like matchsticks, Riggs takes an 80-foot plunge on a motorcycle. Lethal Weapon 3 isn’t just more of everything. It’s the most!
