    21 Jump Street

    I initially found it disappointing that Jonah Hill was using his well-earned celebrity clout to mount a big-screen 21 Jump Street movie, even though the actor was insisting it would be funny and violent. I got even less interested when Channing Tatum, the moderately talented human two-by-four from the Step Up movies and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, signed on to be Hill's co-star. The trend of reviving outdated television series as outsized comedy flicks, kicked off in 1987 with Dragnet, has never caught on as an actual trend and the original 21 Jump Street show was not something I was a fan of anyway.

    Then the first trailer for the movie hit and I found it really funny. Now, there's a newer, longer, and more profane 21 Jump Street trailer for you to laugh your ass all the way through.

    You can watch the red band clip here below, but be advised: there's a ton of swearing in it [...]

    The thing with magic is that the magician has a lot of distractions up his sleeve, so you end up focusing on one thing when you should be paying attention to the other. It’s all fun and games, but when the trick consists of Robin Hood-esque magicians stealing from a heavily fortified bank and giving […]

    Now You See Me Trailer Header

    The one rule that magicians generally abide by is never to do the same trick twice. This requires some major creativity. So rather than saw a person in half or pull a rabbit out of a hat, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco have something better in mind to keep their audiences entertained. In Now You See Me, they will rob a bank from one of the world's most wealthiest men and give it right back to the audiences who have been financially wronged. Think of it as Robin Hood with a hat full of tricks. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Mark Ruffalo also star.

    The first trailer only teased the core plot, which was that they announced that part of the act was to steal from the rich. But this newest trailer gets into the backstory of the characters and some of the planning that went into this magical heist. Oh, let's not forget there are also a few more magic acts [...]

    Zac Efron has really come a long way from his days of being a Wildcat over at the Mouse House. Since putting High School Musical behind him, the actor has been in a plethora of films ranging from comedies to drama. Next year he'll star opposite Seth Rogen and Rose Bryne in the Nick Stoller comedy Neighbors.

    The film centers on your typical family (Rogen and Bryne) living in a quiet and happy neighborhood. But that all changes when a frat boy (Efron) moves right next door, and things go from petty disagreements to all out acts of war. Check out the trailer below. [...]

    22 Jump Street With Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill

    When the 21 Jump Street reboot / relaunch / remake I don’t think anyone expected to enjoy it as much as they did, but thanks to some incredibly witty writing (including some very meta commentary on remaking movies) and some great performances the movie found a very receptive audience.

    Now, the upcoming sequel 22 Jump Street has a new trailer out which promises more of the same laughs as Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reprise their undercover cop roles, this time in college, and more commentary on movie sequels in general and even the first film courtesy of Nick Offerman's opening lines.

    Check out the NSFW red band trailer for 22 Jump Street below, which opens in theaters June 13th, 2014. [...]

    "Hey! Stop fuckin' with Korean Jesus. He ain't got time for yo problems! He's busy... with Korean shit!" – Ice Cube, 21 Jump Street

    Back in 2008, when Columbia Pictures announced they were developing a film adaptation of 21 Jump Street, I was wracked with cynicism. "Really?" I asked incredulously. "Because Starsky & Hutch and Bewitched did so well?" My cynical nerd-brain jumped immediately to the place it so often does these days, "Just what we need, another reboot that no one asked for!"

    I was pleasantly surprised, however, to discover that this revamp wasn’t a gritty, self-serious take like Michael Mann’s Miami Vice, but rather an uproarious action-comedy by the directing duo of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. And I certainly wasn't expecting 21 Jump Street to be such a smart, self-reflexive satire of '80s buddy cop flicks and teen movie tropes. [...]

    James Franco

    First published in April 1985, Cormac McCarthy's historical western novel Blood Meridian or the Evening Redness in the West has long been considered too dark and violent for a film adaptation to do the relentlessly horrific narrative justice. Directors like Ridley Scott (Blade Runner) and Todd Field (Little Children), who have never been strangers to making thematically challenging films, have tackled developing a Blood Meridian feature into a reality, but their efforts always ended in complete surrender. A tale of the dark days of the Old West whose violence and tone made The Wild Bunch look like an episode of Bonanza was never going to be an easy sell as a big-budget motion picture, regardless of what important names were attached.

    The latest name to take a crack at filming the unfilmable is actor and director James Franco. Having already ventured into the world of cinematic adaptations of literary classics with film versions of McCarthy's Child of God and William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying on his resume, Franco has long desired to be the one to bring Blood Meridian to the silver screen. A few years ago he even went as far as to shoot some test footage for his prospective adaptation, and managed to rope in some quality actors to help better visualize how Franco would approach a film based on the novel many consider to be Cormac McCarthy's best.

    To coincide with Child of God's upcoming U.S. theatrical release Franco has released the Blood Meridian test reel for all to gaze upon. You can watch the video here below. [...]

    Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero in The Room

    It sounds like something you'd expect to see as a fake news story on April Fools' Day, but it's something that's actually happening. James Franco is playing Tommy Wiseau in a movie about the making of The Room, a cult classic widely considered to be the worst movie ever made that was written, directed, produced, and starred Wiseau in the lead role.

    Franco, who's also directing, has shared an image from the set of the movie, titled The Disaster Artist, with him in full Wiseau costume and accompanied by his brother Dave Franco, who plays the actor who played Mark (oh hai), Greg Sestero. A bunch of actors have also recently joined the cast, including Josh Hutcherson and Kate Upton. You can see the image and read more about the cast and who they're playing below. [...]

    Han Solo header image

    Last December, it was reported that over 2,500 actors auditioned for the role of young Han Solo in the untitled Star Wars Han Solo spinoff from The LEGO Movie directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord. The expectations are high to find the right person to fill the role considering how iconic the legendary smuggler is in the Star Wars universe.

    Filming isn't expected to begin until 2017, yet Disney and Lucasfilm are looking for actors this early on. And there is a reason for that. Apparently, they want to have the role cast so that Han Solo can make a cameo appearance in another Star Wars spinoff film. According to a new report, the list of 2,500 actors auditioning for the role has been reduced to a mere dozen. Check out who they are looking at and which spinoff Han Solo could appear in here [...]

    Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
    Director: Nicholas Stoller
    Screenwriters: Seth Rogen, Nicholas Stoller, Evan Goldberg, Andrew Jay Cohen, Brendan O’Brien
    Cast: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloë Grace Moretz, Beanie Feldstein, Kiersey Clemons, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo
    Distributor: Universal Pictures
    Rated R | 92 Minutes
    Release Date: May 20, 2016

    It's hard to believe that a comedy sequel could actually be any good whatsoever. Repetition is the proverbial weapon of choice that so often kills a comedy sequel. It's not even a question of making it greater than its predecessor but if such a thing is even necessary to begin with. For Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, there are a few concerns, sure, no film is without flaw, but Nicholas Stoller brings us something that is still funny and manages to maintain that sharp wit and hilarious chemistry between the cast members all the while adding new elements and even addressing a few serious social issues that affect us today.

    The film centers on Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) having to move and put their house in escrow when they find out that they are having a second child. When college freshman Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) establishes a new sorority, Kappa Nu, with Nora (Beanie Feldstein) and Beth (Kiersey Clemons) right next door, Mac and Kelly recruit Teddy (Zac Efron) to their team to battle the sorority sisters and prevent the buyers from pulling out.

    "This isn't working! You're only making them sexier!"

    When you look at movies like Caddyshack II, The Hangover Part II, and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, one thing is clear: it's damn near impossible to make a great comedy sequel. Why do these films pale in comparison to their predecessors? Is it because part of what makes comedy work in the first place is surprise, and by creating familiarity with a character or franchise, there's less room for surprise? That's certainly part of it.

    That familiarity, however, is just a symptom of the cause of why comedy sequels often fail. Rarely are these films concerned with character development or story progression. It's less about evolution and more about escalation. Characters remain largely unchanged while the emphasis is placed on making everything around them bigger and more outrageous. That's what makes Nicholas Stoller's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising so interesting [...]

    The Little Hours movie review

    The Little Hours
    Written & Directed by Jeff Baena
    Starring Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Dave Franco, Paul Reiser, Jemima Kirke, Paul Weitz
    Release date: June 30, 2017

    When looking for inspiration for modern comedy, I know what you’re thinking… the 14th century! For The Little Hours, writer/director Jeff Baena turns to an odd source, Giovanni Boccaccio’s The Decameron. Written in the late 1300s after the Bubonic Plague ripped Europe apart, The Decameron was a collection of novellas about ten young people living in a secluded villa. The atmosphere and period setting made me instinctively think of Monty Python and the Holy Grail while the tone of the comedy -- sex-based and vulgar -- brought to mind There’s Something About Mary and Superbad. Somehow these two angles come together to form an oddly unique film that is intriguing throughout and laugh out loud funny at times [...]

    A teaser trailer has been released for The Disaster Artist, a movie about the making of one of the worst movies ever made, The Room, which also happens to have a massive cult following because of how awful it is.

    The Disaster Artist

    An official trailer has been released for The Disaster Artist, the movie about the making of one of the best bad movies ever created, The Room.

    We saw a teaser trailer for the movie back in July, which showed Tommy Wiseau (played by James Franco) hilariously doing multiple takes on one of the many memorable scenes from the original. This new trailer shows a lot more from the movie, including some more peeks at scenes which fans of the original will no doubt get a kick out of.

    The LEGO Movie franchise has proven that if you build it, they will come. Coming off of two widely successful films, The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, comes The LEGO Ninjago Movie - based off their Ninjago LEGO toyline. While the film is still set in the same LEGO world and has the same LEGO quirks - the self deprecating humor and pop culture nods - the film doesn't pack the same punch as its predecessors. Which is ironic, because this is the most action-packed LEGO movie of them all. It's filled with ninja action, mechs, and so much more. But a lackluster story that seems to be at odds with itself makes The LEGO Ninjago Movie the weakest of the three films [...]

    "Everybody betrayed me! I'm fed up with this world!"

    In 2003, an aspiring actor and filmmaker became a cultural phenomenon with one of the worst movies ever made — The Room, a torrid melodrama about a love triangle between a banker, his deceptive fiancée, and his conflicted best friend. The film was written, directed, and produced by Tommy Wiseau, an enigmatic outsider with dyed-black hair and an impenetrable foreign accent who also stars as the lead, Johnny.

    Hollywood's curiosity in the independent film was piqued when Wiseau erected a billboard to promote his six million dollar passion project, promising a drama on the level of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Now, the unbelievable true story behind The Room — often referred to as "The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies" — is chronicled in a movie-about-a-movie directed by James Franco, who also stars as Wiseau [...]
