Lethal Weapon 2 was released in the UK on this day (September 15th) back in 1989.
For some reason it has always stuck in my head as a date to remember and I’m not sure why exactly.
1989 was a special year for me as it was when I first got into seeing films in a big way – even now I can remember quite clearly what was released that year – and when I saw the trailer for this sequel it seemed to embody the excitment and magic of going to cinema.
Perhaps part of why I remember the release so well is that it was a 15 certificate and I regret not sneaking in as a 12 year old, but I just didn’t have the courage to try (even though I had already done so before then).
