Sony Pictures has released a new 22 Jump Street red-band trailer.  Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller return for the comedic sequel, along with stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who move from the halls of high school to the college campus this time around.  This trailer put to rest any doubts I had about the sequel.  Comedy sequels are rarely funnier than the first movie, but this looks like it could be as funny as 21 Jump Street, which is saying something because I fucking love that movie.

Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.  The film also stars Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Peter Stormare, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.  22 Jump Street opens June 13th.

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door) comedy Let’s Be Cops.  The film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  This debut red-band trailer does a nice job of selling the comedy and chemistry of Johnson and Wayans Jr., who have shined on TV with standout roles in New Girl and Happy Endings, respectively (and now both are on New Girl).  The plot is mostly in the background and it remains to be seen whether it’s strong enough to carry the story to feature length, but for now the movie looks to be quite funny.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Nina Dobrev, Rob Riggle, James D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael KeyLet’s Be Cops opens August 13th.

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, and it’s red-band.  The film finds Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) infiltrating a college campus, and their partnership is tested again except this time they’re back in the roles they had when they were in high school for real—Jenko is the jock, and Schmidt is in the bohemian art scene.  It’s a red-band trailer for language, and the crime-fighting duo are up to their same old tricks: swearing, locking and loading, infiltrating the dealers, and finding the suppliers.  There’s also a couple of fun, unexpected cameos at the end.

First Red Band Trailer for NATURE CALLS Starring Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, and Rob Riggle

by     Posted 1 year, 213 days ago

patton oswalt nature calls

Magnet Releasing has the unveiled the first trailer for Nature Calls.  Since Nature Calls is about a group of obscene men who take a group of foul-mouthed boy scouts on a camping trip, you better believe it’s a red band trailer.  When executed well, this particular comedy subgenre can be very funny.  And with a cast led by Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, and Patrice O’Neal, the stars range from funny to very funny.  That does not come across in the trailer, which is artificially crass and grating.  But that doesn’t mean that writer/director Todd Rohal can’t pull it off at feature length.  Here’s hoping.

Nature Calls hits VOD on October 4 followed by a theatrical release on November 9.  Watch the red band trailer after the jump.

Mark Wahlberg, Adam McKay, and Will Ferrell are gearing up to bring Daily Show alum and prolific bit-part player Rob Riggle to HBO. McKay and Ferrell (producers of the network’s black comedy Eastbound and Down) and Wahlberg (producer of seemingly everything else on HBO) will team with Riggle and fellow Eastbound producer Chris Henchy to develop a 1980s-set Wall Street comedy that Riggle will star in. He’ll be playing a successful bonds trader who, one assumes, will prove to be not unlike Kenny Powers in his repulsive yet enthralling overall approach to life. Hit the jump for more.

12 Actors Who Should Be in ANCHORMAN 2

by     Posted 2 years, 22 days ago

anchorman-2-actors-slice

Yesterday came the joyous news that we would finally be getting a sequel to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.  We know that Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Steve Carell will all be reprising their lovably buffoonish character, Adam McKay will return to the director’s chair, and filming is set to begin in February.  If Anchorman 2 returns with only people from the original cast, I have no problem with that.  But sequels usually bring new faces, so I’ve compiled a list of 12 actors who would fit well within the Anchorman universe.  Keep in mind: I have no idea what the plot will be, or if there will be roles for these actors, and how radically McKay will change the look of the first movie.  The Legend of Ron Burgundy has a goofy 70s vibe, but it’s possible they’ll reset the time and place (the first movie ends with Ron and Veronica leaving San Diego to become worldwide news anchors).  Also, I’m not saying that all of these actors should be in the movie.  I’m just saying I can see them fitting into an Anchorman sequel.

Hit the jump for my criteria on making the list and who made the cut.

TOP 5: 21 JUMP STREET, THE AVENGERS, CASA DE MI PADRE, DARK SHADOWS Trailer, SXSW 2012 Coverage

by     Posted 2 years, 34 days ago

From here on out, when I see a movie and can’t quit thinking about it one week after my initial viewing I’m going to refer to it as the Martha Marcy May Marlene effect. I was uncertain how I felt about it while watching. Flash-forward one week later and I’m still uncertain. Combine some great performances from Elizabeth Olsen and John Hawkes, reserved but effective cinematography, sparse dialogue and even fewer musical cues and what I got was one of the most paranoia-filled movie experiences I’ve ever had. While that may sound like a backhanded compliment, if writer/director Sean Durkin was trying to evoke the type of emotions I think he was with Martha, it may be the highest compliment I can pay him.

In this, the St. Patty’s edition of the “Top 5″, you can find 21 Jump Street interviews with Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube and more, The Avengers bits in which Joss Whedon discusses the pic, its current runtime, The Avengers 2, etc., Casa de mi Padre interviews with Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman and more, the first trailer and poster for Tim Burton‘s Dark Shadows, and all of our SXSW 2012 coverage. A brief recap and link to each ensue after the jump.

Rob Riggle 21 JUMP STREET Interview

Rob-Riggle-21-Jump-Street-interview-slice

21 Jump Street is going to surprise you.  Not only is it one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a long time, it’s got some great action and awesome performances from all involved.  If you had told me that the pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum would be comedy gold, I would have never believed you.  But it is.  Also, another big surprise was Ice Cube.  I’ve seen the film twice and both times he brings the house down with his almost everything he says.  Trust me, you want to see 21 Jump Street and I’d advise seeing it with a crowded theater.  It’s a blast.  For more on the film, here’s Matt’s glowing review, Brendan’s set visit, a five-minute red band clip, and all our coverage on directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s awesome movie.

Last week I got to speak with Rob Riggle in New York City about the film (he plays one of the teachers at the High School).  During the interview we talked about how he got cast, the table reads, how things changed a long the way, karaoke, his favorite director, actor and movie, and the importance of just going for it in a comedy.  Hit the jump for more.

5-Minute Red-Band Trailer for 21 JUMP STREET

by     Posted 2 years, 45 days ago

21-jump-street-channing-tatum-jonah-hill

Sony has released a five-minute red-band trailer for 21 Jump Street.  I’m not going to watch it.  I’m already sold on the movie since I’ve only heard raves about it.  I’ve been told directly “I know your sense of humor and you are going to love this movie.”  I was pretty much sold back when the first red-band trailer hit.  Watching five minutes of the movie would just spoil more jokes for me, so I’m going to pass.

However, if you need more convincing, you can check out the trailer after the jump.  The film stars  Jonah Hill (who also co-wrote the script), Channing Tatum, Nick Offerman, Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, and Rob Riggle.  21 Jump Street opens March 16th.  I’ll be seeing the film at SXSW, so look for my review later this week.

THE LORAX Review

by     Posted 2 years, 50 days ago

lorax-movie-image-slice-02

Dr. Seuss wasn’t afraid to provide serious messages in his books.  Not everything he wrote was Green Eggs and Ham (which, in all fairness, stresses the importance of trying new things).  Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a moving story that could be read to anyone at any age and still be meaningful.  The Lorax didn’t have the joy and humor of his other books but instead left its readers with a poignant message and dire warning.  Illumination Entertainment’s big 3D CGI-animated adaptation could care less about either.  The Lorax gives a begrudging nod towards environmentalism, a halfhearted tip of the hat to Dr. Seuss, and then pours all of its energy into being hip and funny but succeeded at neither.

From the creators of Despicable Me comes the animated feature film adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, a beloved cautionary tale of environmental conservation wrapped up in a colorful children’s story.  We’ve previously brought you images, trailers and even a Super Bowl ad spot for Chris Renaud and Kyle Balda’s The Lorax, which stars Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Ed Helms, Betty White and Danny DeVito. Now we have eight clips from the movie, which will mark Universal’s third Dr. Seuss feature after How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Cat in the Hat. On what would have been the author’s 108th birthday, The Lorax will land in theaters on March 2nd.  Hit the jump to check out the clips.

New Trailer for Improv Comedy HIGH ROAD from Director Matt Walsh

by     Posted 2 years, 81 days ago

high-road-slice

A trailer is now available for High Road, the fully-improvised comedy by director Matt Walsh (The Hangover). Cast with a ridiculous number of improv comedians at all different levels of fame, High Road stars relative unknowns in the principal roles. James F. Pumphrey (Players) is Fitz, a well-meaning drug-dealer who hits the road to escape his problems and encounters some strange characters along the way. The strong supporting cast features Ed Helms, Rob Riggle, Horatio Sans, Kyle Gass, Abby Elliott, Lizzy Caplan and Zach Woods. While it plays like a mash-up of Harold and Kumar and Pineapple Express, I can’t quite figure out if it’s destined to be a cult classic or a simple misfire. Hit the jump to check out the trailer for High Road.
