Wal-Mart's latest insert is advertising the Lethal Weapon 3-pack (and several other Warner's three-fers) at $9.99. Of cours, YMMV.

This release has been out for a few weeks actually, as I've already seen it in stores. All three movies are the "Directors Cut" widescreen versions of the films - so I'd say it was the same content.

Kind of surpised that they just didn't do I and II on one "double feature" disc, and III and IV on another. That way, you'd get all four movies on 2 discs - but with the current version you're short a flick.

I have a question, I really want to buy this three pack and I have seen it at work for only 9.99 for all three Lethal Weapon flicks. What is the aspect ratio on the first three flicks? On the back of the case it says all three are 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, but I always thought they were 2.35:1. I don't know if its just a typo or Warner screwed up on these discs. Any thoughts

I believe the first is 1.85:1 and the rest are 2.35:1

Yeah, the director (Donner) went with a wider aspect ratio after the success of the first film.

I have only seen the Lethal Weapon films in keepcases at Blockbuster with the artwork displaying on back for rental only. Alot of Warner titles that were once snapper cases are now in keepcases at Blockbuster with real artwork and not cut paper from the snappers like most rental places. These are the real deal.

I've come across a bunch those new Blockbuster keepcases recently as well. I actually bought Lethal Weapon 1, and also saw several copies of Lethal Weapon 3. Unfortunately I've had no luck finding the LW2 keepcase yet. They have a small white box near the top of the back cover that says "For Rental or Previously Viewed Sale Only" - otherwise they're no different than the traditional exclusive keepcases they used to have (well that, and the fact that many of these are actually older catalog titles rather than new releases). And dvd luver is right, they aren't color photocopies or cut-up snappers crammed into a keepcase - they're actually real nice.

Yep, I've been looking for the "Spies Like Us" cover for ages, so if anyone scores some of these, let me know.
