'22 Jump Street' red-band trailer: Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill get collegiate -- NSFW VIDEO

22-jump-street-01.jpg

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:

'Jupiter Ascending' trailer: Love, war, and outer space -- VIDEO

Jupiter-Ascending.jpg

What do you get when you pair Channing Tatum as the “perfect hunting machine” with Mila Kunis as the wanted earthling named Jupiter? Jupiter Ascending, the next sci-fi adventure from Lana and Andy Wachowski, a.k.a. the people who brought you Cloud Atlas.

The first trailer for Jupiter Ascending revolves around Tatum’s character hunting Kunis and then seemingly falling for her. Kunis seems to be the key to something much larger than most people on Earth can understand. Add in some elf-like ears and a lot of futuristic guns, and you’ve pretty much summed up the trailer.

Channing Tatum announces 'Team Oscar' contest on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'

There’s nothing Ellen Degeneres likes more than her hometown of New Orleans and male strippers — at least if you buy the intro that actor Channing Tatum (Magic Mike21 Jump Street) received during a satellite appearance on Friday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he kicked off this year’s Team Oscar college search.

The competition is aimed at giving young filmmakers an opportunity to appear on stage during the live Oscar broadcast.

Tatum and Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will pick the six winners of this year’s competition. Students who win will be flown out to attend the 86th annual Academy Awards where they will deliver Oscar statuettes to celebrity presenters on stage.

“It’s inspiring to see talented young people passionate about movies, and I’m excited to help shine a spotlight on them through Team Oscar,” said Tatum who will return to The Ellen DeGeneres Show sometime early next year to announce the Team Oscar winners. Team Oscar is open to U.S. college students and runs through Jan. 5, 2014. To enter, students must visit The Academy’s Facebook page and submit a creative short video explaining how they will contribute to the future of movies. Additionally, entrants will be asked to answer a brief essay question on a similar topic.

This one goes out to all the ladies: Forever Fest celebrates chick flicks, Channing Tatum's abs

Forever Fest, a new film festival in Austin, Texas, that runs Nov. 1-3, aims to flip the genre’s usual dude-heavy script and honor all things girly. Picture a giant slumber party of a weekend stuffed with chick flicks, mimosa brunches, a clip show of film’s best chiseled abs and biceps, and photo booths where you can get your picture taken with Channing Tatum and Ryan Gosling cutouts. Lots of glitter, though not necessarily the movie Glitter. The co-founders Sarah Pitre and Brandy Fons have standards when it comes to their girly programming. They gave the stultifying ensemble mash-up Valentine’s Day as an example of a romantic comedy they’d never inflict on Forever Fest audiences.

Fons, 41, who handles publicity for Alamo Drafthouse, was obsessed with the movie Pitch Perfect when the idea for Forever Fest was first born. “In Austin there’s a gaming festival, there’s a television festival, there’s a beer and food fest,” she said, “but there’s not a festival celebrating films over a weekend like the Pitch Perfects of the world.” Pitre, 34, who works as a lead programmer for Alamo Drafthouse and runs the website Forever Young Adult, says they approached their inaugural fest as a chance to reclaim the term chick flick. “We define chick flick as any film that celebrates the female experience and by that definition that makes chick flicks a vital, important genre,” says Pitre. “For us we really want to lift up that term and provide a place for people to come and celebrate chick flicks without any sense of shame.” They named their baby Forever Fest because, as Pitre says, “forever is such a word that you use as a teenager. Like, best friends forever, I’ll love you forever. But it also brings to mind these movies that we’ve seen a hundred times but we’re going to love forever.”

Sony Pictures Classics sets release date for Steve Carell and Channing Tatum pic 'Foxcatcher'

Moneyball director Bennett Miller’s highly anticipated Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum, will hit theaters on Dec. 20, Sony announced Thursday.

Foxcatcher tells true story of Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and his younger brother Mark (Channing Tatum), both Olympians, and their fraught and dangerous relationship with John du Pont (Steve Carell), a paranoid schizophrenic and heir to the du Pont fortunes. A late December release date positions the film in an ideal space for awards consideration. Miller’s previous narrative films, Moneyball and Capote, both received significant awards buzz. He even picked up a Best Director nod for Capote.

Veterans, active military can see 'White House Down' for free July 4

What could be more patriotic than seeing the White House blown to bits on July 4?

To thank active military and veterans for their service, Sony is offering free admission to the Channing Tatum-Jamie Foxx action film White House Down on Independence Day, the studio announced Tuesday.

Several movie theater chains — Regal Entertainment Group, AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, and Carmike Cinemas — are participating in the promotion. To get in, patrons must present a valid military ID. The offer is only valid on July 4.

The Roland Emmerich-directed film, which opened wide last weekend, follows Capitol Policeman John Cale (Tatum) who dreams of being a Secret Service agent but has been denied the opportunity. He finds himself indispensable to the President (Foxx) when he’s in the right place (on a White House tour with his daughter) at the wrong time (a paramilitary group takes over 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.), and he must save the President, his daughter, and the country.

Box office report: 'Monsters University' stays on top with $46.2 million; 'The Heat' hot, 'White House Down' not

It’s been a great June at the domestic box office — and thanks to a jam-packed slate of robust earners, the month finished strong this weekend. In fact, the top five films all earned over $20 million.

Monsters University stayed on top of the chart with $46.2 million, marking a slim 44 percent drop over the Friday-to-Sunday period, which was lower than the second weekend declines of Brave (49 percent), Cars 2 (60 percent), and Toy Story 3 (46 percent). The well-received family film has earned $171.3 million total after ten days — and it will definitely surpass the original Monsters Inc.‘s $251 million cume. The film will face a formidable challenge next week, though, when Despicable Me 2, which has been cleaning up overseas (it’s already earned over $50 million from just seven countries), hits theaters on July 3.

In second place, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s buddy-cop comedy The Heat scored an excellent $40 million — a career-best debut for both stars. The film, directed by Bridesmaids helmer Paul Feig, cost Fox only $43 million to make — and it will surpass that figure by Tuesday. The Heat‘s great debut trumps the opening weekend of McCarthy’s other 2013 hit, Identity Thief, which began its run with $36.3 million on the way to a $134.5 million finish.

As might be expected, adult women drove business for The Heat, which carries an R-rating. According to Fox, audiences were 65 percent female and 67 percent above the age of 25. Crowds issued the film an “A-” CinemaScore grade. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Monsters University' and 'The Heat' crush 'White House Down' on Friday

Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock proved they were an appealing comedic duo on Friday — but they couldn’t outpace the animated pairing of Mike and Sully at the box office.

Monsters University topped the chart with $14.3 million yesterday, putting the Pixar sequel on track for an excellent $49 million second weekend. That would give the family film a $175 million total after ten days — a healthy total as it prepares to take on Despicable Me 2 next weekend.

In second place, The Heat scored an excellent $13.6 million, which easily trumps McCarthy’s last two starring efforts: Bridesmaids, which opened with $7.8 million on a Friday, and Identity Thief, which began with $11.1 million on a Friday. The Heat may take in about $39 million this weekend, which would not only be a fantastic start considering its $43 million budget, but also a career-best opening for both Bullock and McCarthy.
