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: 22 Jump Street teaser trailer

The 21 Jump Street movie was so much better than it had any right to be, thanks in large part to Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs). It did really well, and so Hollywood is giving us another one:

22 Jump Street. June 13, 2014, baby.

Trailer Watch: Jupiter Ascending teaser trailer

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?

The film opens July 25, 2014.

Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Trailer Watch: Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt and more in 10 Years

After his fantastically funny turn 21 Jump Street, I was hoping to see Channing Tatum do more comedy, and the trailer for 10 Years looks like it will be pretty funny — but I was surprised that it seems to have a little depth, too, not to mention a really strong supporting cast.

You can get the gist of the story from the trailer, of course, or read the official synopsis:

Jake (Channing Tatum) is deeply in love with his girlfriend (Jenna Dewan-Tatum, his real-life wife and Step Up co-lead), ready to propose – until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in ten years. Jake’s friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend, and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty and A.J (Justin Long and Max Minghella) spend the night still trying to one-up each other to impress the coolest girl in class (Lynn Collins), who now has a secret. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Drive‘s Oscar Isaac), is now a well-known musician, but is still too shy to talk to the high school crush (Kate Mara) who inspired his one hit wonder.

10 Years was written and directed by Jamie Linden (We Are Marshall). Aubrey Plaza, Scott Porter, Brian Geraghty, Aaron Yoo, Eiko Nijo and Nick Zano round out the cast. The film is out in theaters on September 14, 2012.
