Beverly Hills Cop 4

Moviehole has an interview here with the screenwriter for the 2010 film, Derek Haas where he said, among other things: "I think you have to focus on the protagonist and set up a conflict based on or suggested by the first movie. You don't sacrifice character just for bigger action or more special effects. You always start with character and say, 'what does he want at the beginning of the film?' Then just tell a great story that doesn't snub what came before it but builds on it."

Special thanks to Movie for so many of the dynamite movie posters we use from time to time. You cannot find a better place to run down those new or classic posters.
