22 Jump Street


The Summer of Sequels is in full force next week with second helpings of both "How To Train Your Dragon" and "Jump Street".  Dreamworks animation attempts to recreate the magic of the original with "How To Train Your Dragon 2".  The first HTTYD opened to $43 million on its way to $217 million domestic and an additional $275 internationally.  Whatever it does open to, it has a long run ahead of it as there isn't another animated title until July 18th with Disney's "Planes: Fire And Rescue".

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back, this time invading college, in "22 Jump Street" from Sony.  Back in 2012 when the pair were across the street at "21 Jump Street" they opened to $36 million, ending up at a rather nifty $138 million.  

On the limited/indie side there are two very promising openers.  First up, Focus debuts the sci-fi thriller, "The Signal", in 100 theatres in 30 markets with further expansion the following week.  The film stars Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke and Laurence Fishburne.  In addition, A24 offers up "The Rover", a "Mad Max"-like Aussie actioner, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.  The film expands June 20th.

Finally, IFC opens "Helion" with Aaron Paul and Juliette Lewis and Arc Entertainment has the family drama, "Lullaby" with Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins and Javier Bardem
