The sequel to 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street, was always going to take place in college. That much was locked in from the film’s final scene. But what would Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) be doing with their time? Those story points have begun to leak out as casting for the sequel, scheduled for release June 13, 2014, continues. Ice Cube is now confirmed to return and Greek star Amber Stevens has been cast, potentially as his daughter (and definitely as Hill’s love interest). Read more about that, and the plot, below.

While many fans have started looking ahead to the summer of 2015, we have a full summer of blockbusters to watch before that. 2014 will provide new movies from well-known franchises and characters like Spider-Man, X-Men, Transformers, Fast and Furious, as well as Planet of the Apes. Lots of familiar properties to go around for everyone.
Then on July 25, 2014 comes a film with no precursor. It has no built-in franchise awareness and, at this point, very few clues to its nature are available. That movie is Jupiter Ascending, the latest film from the groundbreaking Andy and Lana Wachowski. The wholly original sci-fi action film stars Mila Kunis as “a cleaning woman who, unbeknownst to her, shares a genetic makeup with the Queen of the Universe. The Queen isn’t all that happy about the existence of a potential rival, and sends a character played Channing Tatum to track her down.”
In a new interview, Tatum revealed that he’s playing a half-wolf, half-human in the film and said the Wachowskis are “doing stuff that’s never been done.” Read More »

Much as we appreciate big-budget blockbusters that aim to be deep or emotional or to impart profound life lessons, there comes a point in every summer when all we want to do is enjoy some expensive, well crafted mayhem.
Arriving just in time for that moment this year is Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down. The first wave of reactions has just hit the web, and by most accounts (including Peter’s and Germain’s) it’s the perfect summer blockbuster: big, silly, and dumb, in the best possible way. Hit the jump to get the buzz.

Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down is the second of two “Die Hard on Pennsylvania Avenue” pics to hit screens this year, but if it delivers on the promises made by this four-minute final trailer, it could just blow the other one out of the water altogether. It has all the ingredients for a satisfying summer blockbuster: tons of big, explosive action; a liberal sprinkling of humor; and even some cute buddy-cop rapport between Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. Watch it after the jump.
