How lucky are we that after Chris Miller and Phil Lord‘s latest film, The Lego Movie, we only have to wait four months to see their next movie? That movie is 22 Jump Street and, once again, Miller and Lord have their backs to the wall with a sequel to a reboot.
We’ve already seen two versions of the first trailer, a Red Band and Green Band, and now a third version has been released. It’s the green band, with an “alternate ending” but it’s worth watching for the one huge laugh alone. Check it out below. Read More »

As directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller start to do the press rounds for their new effort, The LEGO Movie, the marketing push is just starting to roll on their next one, 22 Jump Street.
As we’ve seen in trailers, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return as earnest but slightly bumbling cops, with Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts helping out and/or getting in their way. One of the best trailer shots so far has the two standing on a car, pumping pistols in the air. That shot has now been repurposed as a pretty good poster, which you can see below. Read More »

The movies of 2013 were great and we’re all anxiously anticipating 2015, but let’s not overlook 2014. While the upcoming calendar isn’t packed as full of blockbusters that make film fans salivate, 2014 has some pretty awesome looking movies from several of the best filmmakers in the world. It has its share of massive franchise films too and while maybe they’re not Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator or Batman fighting Superman, I’ll take Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, the Wachowksis and David Fincher any day.
Below, read my top ten anticipated films of 2014. Read More »
When marketing an R-rated comedy like the upcoming 22 Jump Street, the red-band trailer is a great tool. It quickly and easily gives the audiences what they want: vulgarity, nudity, violence and any number of other inappropriate things the final film will have. For the most part, though, those trailers largely live online.
When you head to the theater this weekend to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, here’s the version of the 22 Jump Street trailer you’ll see. The green band. It’s still incredibly funny, just with less cursing. In the place of that, though, is a bunch of new footage from the sequel, out June 13. Check it out below. Read More »
The 21 Jump Street reboot surprised many with the chemistry between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, and the comic energy of everyone around them. So there’s a sequel, 22 Jump Street, with the major cast back in their roles, and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller back in the driver’s seat(s). The setting is moved from high school to college, so there are plenty of college movie cliches to lampoon, and a new drug plot to follow up. And one character has had gender reassignment surgery, though that may be more of an incidental thing than a big plot point.
Watch the red-band trailer below. Read More »
