Trailer Watch: 22 Jump Street red band trailer

I don’t know anybody who wasn’t already a fan of Clone High and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs who thought 21 Jump Street was going to be any good. But when it was actually pretty great, a sequel was quickly greenlit — and when The LEGO Movie was not just also way better than it had any right to be but a commercial hit, as well, directing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord were basically anointed the latest Hollywood Golden Boys.

Anyway, so this red band trailer for 22 Jump Street has a lot more to live up to than anything else they’ve done, but what we’ve seen so far seems… well, like a sequel. This trailer basically thumbs its nose at that idea, while at the same time not really showing us anything new and different. We’ll see how it goes on June 13, 2014.

Trailer Watch: How to Train Your Dragon 2 official trailer #3

I’m not going to watch this, since I’d like to go in as blank as possible with this movie (so I’ll thank you not to blurt out anything spoilery in the comments below, despite it being in a trailer), but…

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is out on June 13, 2014.
