Jonah Hill tries to play football, gets attacked by a giant octopus, and is hit in the face by a beanbag all in the latest trailer for 22 Jump Street. The green-band trailer shows Hill and Channing Tatum at it again, this time posing as college students to bust a drug dealer. “We’re like a power couple,” Tatum tells Hill in the trailer. Yes, yes, you are. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
Tag: 21 jump street (1-10 of 11)
To quote Nick Offerman’s meta Deputy Chief Hardy in the official red-band trailer for 22 Jump Street: “Nobody gave a sh– about the Jump Street reboot, but you got lucky. So now, this department has invested a lot of money to make sure Jump Street keeps going.”
And keep going it will after the surprising success of the 21 Jump Street reboot (and Channing Tatum as a comedic actor) last year, the boys are back to bust up another drug ring, this time as undergrads. Perhaps Jenko and Schmidt, a.k.a. almost-30-year-old Jonah Hill and 33-year-old Channing Tatum, will have a better time blending into the collegiate lifestyle than they did in high school. But according to one student — “You look old as sh– to be here” — perhaps not.
Set perfectly to Wallpaper.’s #STUPiDFACEDD, the trailer shows Ice Cube, Rob Riggle and Dave Franco also returning, the latter two sharing a jail cell (and a very special one-sided relationship). Check out the joke-filled trailer below:

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are heading back undercover. Sony announced at its CinemaCon presentation that it will release a 21 Jump Street sequel sometime in 2014. A followup was never in doubt, after the crafty comic remake of the 1980s babyfaced-cop show made $138 million. In fact, Variety reported last year that Sony closed a deal for Hill and Michael Bacall to write the sequel before the original had even opened. EW called the comedy, “Fast, cheeky, and very funny.”
Few other details are available, including a more specific timeframe for release, or what exactly, the film will be about — but who cares? On a scale of The Giggs-Tripping Major Ballsack (beware NSFW video), how excited are you?
We’re officially halfway through 2012, and if you’re an obsessive box-office junkie like me, that means it’s time to reflect back on the past six months at the movies and give credit to some of the best box-office performances. (Theoretically, it’s also time to think back to box-office disasters like Battleship, John Carter, and That’s My Boy, but we’ll save that for another time…)
There have been loads of strong performers with sensible budgets, so it was difficult to whittle down the slate (sorry, Safe House and Contraband, you were thisclose to making the cut!), but whittle I did. Thus, here is my totally-up-for-debate list of the 15 Most Impressive* Box Office Performances of 2012… so far. READ FULL STORY
Box office report: 'The Hunger Games' stays on top with $61.1 million, holds off 'Wrath' and 'Mirror Mirror'
Not even Olympian gods and a very wicked witch could slow down The Hunger Games‘ exemplary box office run.
The smash adaptation, which scored the third best opening of all time last weekend with $152.2 million, dropped by 60 percent in its second frame to $61.1 million. While that drop may seem hefty, it was all but expected given last weekend’s unbelievable numbers, and it was in the same range as the second weekend drops of comparable blockbusters like Iron Man 2 (-59 percent) and Spider-Man 3 (-62 percent), and, in fact, better than many others like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (-70 percent).

Box office update: 'Hunger Games' wins Friday with $18.9 million; 'Wrath' and 'Mirror Mirror' not so fair
Two new wide releases couldn’t dethrone box office champion The Hunger Games on Friday.
The blockbuster dropped by 72 percent from its first Friday to $18.9 million, which should lead to a three-day gross above $60 million and an easy weekend win. (A hefty drop was all but guaranteed after scoring the third-best opening of all time.) Over ten days, The Hunger Games‘ total will likely sit at about $250 million.
In second place, READ FULL STORY
Rebooting an old concept can be challenging, but Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum agree that 21 Jump Street, based (very loosely) on the 1980s TV show of the same name, pulls it off. Jonah Hill “has very good taste” in picking roles and projects (he stars in and and is a producer of 21 Jump Street), Schwarzbaum says. Gleiberman praises Channing Tatum’s humor in the film and likens him to a young Brad Pitt. See the EW critics’ full take, in the latest installment of Movie Talk With Owen and Lisa below.
R-rated comedy 21 Jump Street (starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill) topped the box office on Friday with a tremendous $13.1 million in its first 24 hours. The well-reviewed television adaptation–it earned a “B” CinemaScore grade–may pull in about $35 million over the Friday to Sunday period, which is a gross typically reserved for comedic summer tentpoles — not any old springtime release. I’d guess that 21 Jump Street‘s terrific start will trigger a sequel announcement within a week. Sony could have a new smash franchise on their hands. READ FULL STORY
After John Carter’s disappointing opening frame, this weekend brings moviegoers only one new wide release, 21 Jump Street, which looks like a potential smash that could birth a franchise. Although a number of limited releases — Will Ferrell comedy Casa De Mi Padre (382 theaters), Nicholas Cage thriller Seeking Justice (230 theaters), and Jason Segel/Ed Helms comedy Jeff, Who Lives at Home (250 theaters), — are hitting multiplexes, they aren’t likely to make much impact on the box office. Friends With Kids‘s expansion from 369 to 640 theaters might give it a small boost, but on the whole, the chart will likely look very similar to last weekend. Here’s how things may shake out: READ FULL STORY
