Beverly Hills Cop Back on Beat

Netflix today released the teaser trailer for the fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie.

Due to premiere mid-2024, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F reunites 30 years later the original cast — Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton — and recruits franchise newcomers Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Taylour Paige and Kevin Bacon. Reads the blurb:

Detective Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) is back on the beat in Beverly Hills. After his daughter’s life is threatened, she (Taylour Paige) and Foley team up with a new partner (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and old pals Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and John Taggart (John Ashton) to turn up the heat and uncover a conspiracy.

“It’s a really physical movie and I had to do some physical stuff,” Murphy told People last month.

“I like to be on the couch, I don’t like to be jumping over and shooting and running. And I had to do some jumping and shooting and running.

“And as a result … at the end of the movie, I had a knee brace and my back is messed up. But the movie is gonna be special.”

Netflix’s also released an image of the three actresses who have played Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown to mark the premiere of the final batch of episodes.

Claire Foy (S1-2), Olivia Colman (S3-4) and Imelda Staunton (S5-6) appear together for the first time in the conclusion, which earned mixed reviews around the world: “a very poignant, beautifully crafted farewell to Queen Elizabeth II” (The Times); “a gloomy end to a drama that once brought such pleasure” (The Telegraph); “an affecting, evocative final chapter” (Sydney Morning Herald);  “a thudding close” (Irish Times); “ends in an anti-climax” (Variety).

As a consolation prize for period drama fans, Netflix is promising “an ultra-sexy, lavish” S3 of Bridgerton next year.

Like The Crown, it will unfold in two parts: four episodes on May 16 and four more on June 13. Reads the blurb:

Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) has finally given up on her long-held crush on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) after hearing his disparaging words about her last season. She has, however, decided it’s time to take a husband, preferably one who will provide her with enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, far away from her mother and sisters. But lacking in confidence, Penelope’s attempts on the marriage mart fail spectacularly. Meanwhile, Colin has returned from his summer travels with a new look and a serious sense of swagger. But he’s disheartened to realize that Penelope, the one person who always appreciated him as he was, is giving him the cold shoulder. Eager to win back her friendship, Colin offers to mentor Penelope in the ways of confidence to help her find a husband this season. But when his lessons start working a little too well, Colin must grapple with whether his feelings for Penelope are truly just friendly. Complicating matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, while Penelope’s growing presence in the ton makes it all the more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown alter ego a secret.
