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.

Only a few people have seen The Wolf of Wall Street, from Martin Scorsese — mostly guild members and Oscar pundits — but the word has been pretty enthusiastic. I’ve heard that the movie is funny and extraordinarily debauched; that NC-17 talk wasn’t idle chatter. (DiCaprio describes it as “a modern day Caligula.“) There’s a lot of talk about how good the cast is, and also some interesting notes about the music choices.
We’ll all get to see it soon, as the movie opens on Christmas Day, but for now you can either watch or bookmark this great roundtable talk with the creators. Scorsese takes part, with star/producer Leonardo DiCaprio, co-star Jonah Hill, and screenwriter Terence Winter. Read More »
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’ve now heard buzz on almost all of the major Fall releases. Two we’re still a bit in the dark about, though, are David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street. That’ll surely change in the coming weeks as each release is quickly approaching, but Paramount has begun to build the hype for Scorsese’s latest. Commercials have started airing for the Christmas release and now several new images, a clip and two awesome posters have made it online.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens December 25 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey among others. Check out the new media – which includes some awesome behind the scenes looks of Scorsese in action – below. Read More »
Three major films have some not so major updates: two sets of casting rumors and a small title change. After the jump, read about the following:
- A few names, including Emilia Clarke and Garrett Hedlund have been mentioned to possibly be up for Sarah and John Connor in Terminator 5.
- Here we go again. Jonah Hill and Emma Stone‘s names have been mentioned again regarding Ghostbusters 3.
- Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has reportedly been renamed Sin City: A Dame to Die For.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The second trailer from Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street may not have the propulsive drive of the first, which was powered by Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead,’ but it does have a few oh-so-perfect shots of Leonardo DiCaprio reacting to the insane wealth and resulting lifestyle his character enjoys. It’s a gif wonderland, this trailer. The fist-bite shot above is just one example.
Here we see DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, who with an eager beaver assistant played by Jonah Hill (wearing some massive false choppers) builds a young, go-getting brokerage firm. They make more cash than they know what do do with; trouble is, most of what they’re doing is totally illegal. Oops. The feds show up, of course, but not before this tale of Wall Street hubris really plays in the sandbox of insane wealth.
It all looks deliberately exaggerated and more than bit over the top, but seeing Scorsese and DiCaprio in a mode this lively is a joy to behold. Read More »

Of all the reasons to love This Is the End, the amazing cast is by far the best. As hilarious as Seth Rogen (who also co-directed with Evan Goldberg), Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson are individually, they’re even better together. The gang has been tight for years, and it shows in every perfectly silly riff.
We can only assume that that set must have been a hoot, what with all of these comedians trying to outdo each other. Now a gag reel from the production only lends credence to that theory. Hit the jump to see the guys getting even goofier on the set than they do in the final film.

It’s easy to imagine an alternate universe in which 21 Jump Street, an unasked-for reboot of a stale old property, sank in 2012 without leaving much of a trace. Instead, thanks to the crackling chemistry between leads Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, the hilarious script by Hill and Michael Bacall, and the energetic direction by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it turned out to be one of the year’s pleasantest surprises.
Now the group has reunited to try and recreate that magic. Production on the sequel 22 Jump Street kicked off this past weekend in New Orleans, and we have the first pics from the set right here. Hit the jump to check ’em out.
