How To Train Your Dragon 2 opens soon and from the footage we have seen in the trailer and first five minutes, it’s safe to say that they are going for bigger and better.  Check out the new featurette if you’re hungry for some more unseen footage highlighting the amazing animation of voice work.

While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.

The film features the voices of Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Djimon Hounsou, and Kristen Wiig.

Laugh it Up With this New Red-Band Trailer for 22 JUMP STREET

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

red-22

One of the best comedies of 2012 is coming back for more in what could be an even funnier outing a second time around in 22 Jump Street [21 Jump Street review].  Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller return for the sequel, along with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who have left their undercover job at high school and have gone off to infiltrate a college campus, naturally.

This trailer is very funny, there is no doubt it will be a hit but I just think I will stop watching the clips and trailers that are coming out to save some of the surprise. [Check out the first red-band here]

The movie 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, watch the red-band below:

The First Clip from 22 JUMP STREET Starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

22jump

Busy directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller are already working on the sequel to The LEGO Movie, and are likely putting finishing touches on their sequel 22 Jump Street which we have the first clip for below.  In the funny spot we can see that Tatum’s character, Jenko, has a hard time with accents – something that makes us happy that they didn’t discuss this potential problem prior to meeting up with some thugs.

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

22 Jump Street opens on June 13th, watch the clip below:

Jonah Hill Talks About THE WOLF OF WALL STREET Airplane Orgy Scene and Goldfish Poop

Jonah Hill was on Conan last night, and thankfully Conan asked Hill what it was like to film The Wolf of Wall Street airplane orgy scene.  That’s not a spoiler, that’s just one of many reasons to see the flick if you haven’t already.  If you would like a lot more insight into Hill’s life and what this movie meant to him, I urge you to listen to his Stern Show interview (here).

Hide the Quaaludes, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill Reteam for Film about Falsely Accused Olympic Bomber

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

leo-hill

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, the duo that each have a pending Oscar nomination to perhaps win are at it again; Deadline reports that author Marie Brenner’s 1997 Vanity Fair article called “The Ballad of Richard Jewell,” which recounts the story of a man who was hailed as a hero for discovering a backpack bomb during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and was subsequently vilified when he became a potential suspect will be the source for the movie.  The movie will take aim at the power (or misuse of) of the 24-hour news cycle and how it destroyed one man’s life.

Hill is set to play the lead role of Jewell, while DiCaprio would fill the role of a lawyer Jewell knew casually: “a Southern attorney who mostly did real estate closings and seemed in over his head, but he guided Jewell through a hellish Twilight Zone that went on even after the FBI officially cleared Jewell’s name three months later.”

Hill has been on a role for the last couple of years; it’s nice to see him switch back and forth between genres as he’ll be seen this summer with Channing Tatum in the sequel 22 Jump Street.

Rogen, Hill, Franco, and More to Voice R-Rated Animated Film SAUSAGE PARTY

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Get your chuckle muscles ready because Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Evan Goldberg have been developing a hard-R animated film called Sausage Party.  They have been working on it for some time, Sony Pictures agreed to produce the movie alongside Annapurna Pictures last year.  The Wrap now reports that Rogen, Hill, and James Franco will lead the voice cast for the film, with Michael Cera, Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton, Nick Kroll, and David Krumholtz also lending their voices.

We don’t know who the characters are but the synopsis reads:  The story follows one sausage’s “quest to discover the truth about his existence,” as he falls out of a shopping cart and, along with his friends, embarks on a journey to return to his aisle before the 4th of July sale.

Sony plans on releasing the pic sometime in 2015, perhaps around the Fourth of July if you want to guess.  Rogen and Goldberg are currently working on their directorial follow-up to This Is the End, the live-action comedy The Interview starring Rogen and Franco.  That film is slated for release on October 10th.

22-jump

Here is the first and much anticipated trailer for 22 Jump Street that finds Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) infiltrating a college campus.  It looks like it’s picking up right after the first entry which had a lot of laughs and action, so this is good.  We see returning faces and new situations that calls for rave dancing apparently, and this time around Jenko is now the jock, and Schmidt is in the art scene.

21 Jump Street was a great movie and you can expect to see more about 22 Jump Street in my upcoming list of anticipated 2014 releases.  Plug!

The film also stars Ice Cube, Amber Stevens, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.

22 Jump Street opens June 13, 2014, watch the trailer below:

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Terence Winter Talk WOLF OF WALL STREET

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

In a fantastically candid roundtable with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Terence Winter, The Wolf of Wall Street players open up about airplane orgies, how Hill won the role, Steven Spielberg on set and why DiCaprio was drawn to the real-life story.

Martin Scorsese is returning to black comedy with this month’s The Wolf of Wall Street opening on Christmas Day. The film is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.

THR has been doing a number of roundtable interviews for this year’s awards contenders; this one is by far my favorite so far.  Watch it after the jump below.

FYI: Scorsese confirms that we won’t be seeing a longer director’s cut on home video.
