Trimark bumps up its slate

Trimark Pictures unspooled the last picture show of NATO/ShoWest ’93, previewing the company’s largest slate in its five-year history.

At the final reception of the convention, Trimark veepee domestic distribution Tim Swain announced Thursday that Trimark would release eight to 12 pix (up from last year’s three to four) budgeted from $ 2 million to $ 10 million.

The clips included “Extreme Justice,” starring Lou Diamond Phillips as a rookie working with Scott Glenn’s seasoned-killer cop in an investigative section of the Los Angeles police department that the film calls a death squad.

Phillips also makes his directorial debut with erotic thriller “Dangerous Touch.”

Clips of previously announced titles also unspooled, including a host of sequels such as “Death Wish V,””Philadelphia Experiment II” and “Warlock: The Armageddon” with Julian Sands.
