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 »

In the wrong hands, The Lego Movie could’ve been a lazy, forgettable kids’ film with no obvious purpose other than pushing more plastic bricks. But as directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it’s looking like a very early contender for the year’s best animated film — funny, smart, energetic, and far more original than we have any reason to expect a film based on a toy would be.
With every new bit of marketing that rolls out, it’s looking more and more promising. Today, we have nine new clips from the film totaling about eight minutes of footage. Chris Pratt leads the voice cast as Emmet, an extraordinarily ordinary minifig who is accidentally drafted to lead a revolution against the evil President Business (Will Ferrell). Watch all the videos after the jump.

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.

Blissfully ignorant Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) may be the hero of The Lego Movie, but he’s far from the only character. To the contrary, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have constructed an entire plastic brick world around him, and the new poster offers a chance to check out some of the other minifigs that populate Lego land. Check it out along with some new character posters after the jump.

Even if you’re too old for trick-or-treating, you can count on getting at least one shiny new treat tomorrow. Warner Bros. has announced that they will release the second trailer for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s The Lego Movie on Thursday, October 31, to follow up that delightful first trailer we got back in June.
And to prepare for that new promo, the marketing team has revealed five brief new teasers based on some of the film’s central characters: good guy Emmet (Chris Pratt), kickass Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), villainous President Business (Will Ferrell), pirate-y Metalbeard (Nick Offerman), and competitive Batman (Will Ferrell). Check ‘em out after the jump.

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.
