22 Jump Street (3)

22 Jump Street is so fast, so funny and so entertaining, it almost makes time stop. After watching the film, and without looking it up, I couldn’t guess how long the movie had been, because the whole experience was so relentless with its comedy and action. It’s exhausting in the best possible way.

The non-stop onslaught of cleverness is something we’ve come to expect from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. With this, their first directorial sequel, they’ve lived up to the huge expectations of the first 21 Jump Street. In fact, they might have gone beyond it. 22 Jump Street is one of the funniest, and best movies of the summer. Read More »

After next weekend, everyone is going to want Chris Miller and Phil Lord to direct their sequel. The team behind Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie have their first directorial sequel coming out, 22 Jump Street, and it’s a brilliant and hilarious comedic follow-up.

That film comes mere months after another triumph for the directorial duo, The Lego Movie. A sequel was recently announced aimed at a May 2017 release but Miller and Lord won’t direct. They’re leaving that task to their animation director Chris McKay. However they’ll still be a part of the project. In a new interview, they offered an update on The Lego Movie 2, as well as a huge hurdle they’re trying to overcome. Read More »

Ant-Man

Last week, Edgar Wright suddenly departed from Marvel Studio’s big screen adaptation of Ant-Man, with an official statement citing “differences in their vision of the film” as reasons for the “amicable” split. Marvel Studios says they still plan to have Ant-Man in theaters for the announced July 17th 2015 release date, and Marvel has already begun a search for a new director. The movie will have to begin filming this Summer to make that date, so an announcement will likely come soon. So who should replace Edgar Wright to direct Ant-Man? I explore this question in the article below.

Last Man on Earth trailer

By far the strangest show set to air later this year on Fox is The Last Man on Earth, starring Will Forte, with a pilot directed by the guys who made The Lego Movie. As far as we know, the show only stars Will Forte. He plays Phil Miller, who is literally the last man on Earth. How and why did he end up being the only person left? Is there any chance he might encounter someone else? Does Forte, who created the show, really like the comics series Y: The Last Man, or just old Vincent Price movies? Some of these questions might eventually be answered. Check out The Last Man on Earth trailer below. Read More »

22 Jump Street trailer

I can’t tell you what’s in the new 22 Jump Street trailer. I won’t watch it. Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum all returning for the sequel to one of my favorite movies of 2012? I was sold before cameras began rolling. Then the first couple trailers showed the same kind of self-reference, smarts and laughs we’ve come to expect from the franchise. So the hooks were in. At that point, I didn’t want to see any more, as comedy trailers tend to ruin many jokes in a film.

But this is a new 22 Jump Street trailer, from the UK, and just skimming through it you can tell there is a lot of new footage in here. In fact, it’s mostly new footage. If you aren’t as sold or excited as I am, you should definitely check it out. Or even if you are and can’t contain yourself, I get that too. Read More »

Lego movie How It Should Have Ended

The How It Should Have Ended videos are always well done. Insightful, funny, and professional looking. But they’ve taken things to a new level for The Lego Movie. They’ve emulated the animation overseen by directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to create a video that not only looks exactly like it’s part of The Lego Movie, it points out some pretty interesting points. And, because it’s the Internet, it uses Superman and Batman to do so.

Check out the amazing Lego Movie How It Should Have Ended video below. Read More »

22 Jump Street Set

Most directors are lucky to have one smash hit in a given year. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are about to have two. Fresh off of the success of The Lego Movie, Lord and Miller are releasing 22 Jump Street, once again starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as a mismatched pair of undercover cops.

21 Jump Street was one of the funniest studio comedies in recent memory, and if the new 22 Jump Street red-band trailer is anything to go by, these guys haven’t lost their touch. This time around, Schmidt and Jenko pass as college students and head down to spring break — all in the name of catching baddies, of course. Watch the trailer after the jump.
