Ride Along stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, one is a fast-talking aspiring police officer and the other is a hot-tempered cop [record scratch]. Now they are going on a ride along so Hart can prove he is worthy to be with Cube’s sister. It’s the adult thing to do.
The film also stars John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Tika Sumpter, Bryan Callen, and Laurence Fishburne.
Ride Along opens January 17, 2014, watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.
The trailer for Rampart has Woody Harrelson playing “the most corrupt cop you’ve ever seen on screen” – that’s if you never saw Harvey Keitel in Bad Lieutenant or Nicolas Cage in The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans. Still, this movie looks intense and Harrelson as always place a menace like no other (see Natural Born Killers). There is Oscar buzz for his roll, which looking at the trailer below, is very exciting and possibly deserved.
The film also stars Ned Beatty, Ice Cube, Ben Foster, Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon, Sigourney Weaver, Robin Wright and Steve Buscemi.
Los Angeles, 1999. Officer Dave Brown (Woody Harrelson) is a Vietnam vet and a Rampart Precinct cop, dedicated to doing “the people’s dirty work” and asserting his own code of justice, often blurring the lines between right and wrong to maintain his action-hero state of mind. When he gets caught on tape beating a suspect, he finds himself in a personal and emotional downward spiral as the consequences of his past sins and his refusal to change his ways in light of a department-wide corruption scandal seal his fate. Brown internalizes his fear, anguish and paranoia as his world, complete with two ex-wives who are sisters, two daughters, an aging mentor dispensing bad advice, investigators galore, and a series of seemingly random women, starts making less and less sense. In the end, what is left is a human being stripped of all his pretense, machismo, chauvinism, arrogance, sexism, homophobia, racism, aggression, misanthropy; but is it enough to redeem him as a man?
Watch the trailer below, and look for a release in 2012:

Here is a new Girl With The Dragon Tattoo TV Spot, watch it below:
A red band trailer for the remake of the 1980s television series 21 Jump Street starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as young cops who go undercover at a high school. The trailer has some funny moments and it’s nice to see Ice Cube swearing in a movie again instead of falling down. This reminds me a lot of Superbad; the party scene for example is very similar in style. That’s not a knock at the movie, it works here obviously – I laughed.
In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
