It was just yesterday that we were wondering when 20th Century Fox was going to get the marketing ball rolling on "The Watch," the comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. The tragic killing of Trayvon Martin made selling a movie about a rogue neighborhood watch crew a bit difficult for the studio, but this healthy, lengthy international trailer for the movie shows they could have a comic hit on their hands.

Last fall, while on the press rounds for his Oscar-nominated turn in "Moneyball," Jonah Hill lamented one role that got away from him, a part in Quentin Tarantino's then brewing "Django Unchained." "I got offered the new Quentin Tarantino movie, and I can't do it because of my schedule," he said at the time. "Doing Quentin's movie would have obviously been amazing, but my schedule didn't work out, which sucks." Well, it looks like good fortune is shining on Hill as he's back in.

You want to know how far the branches of the Judd Apatow tree go? Just look at the cast of "The End Of The World." Not only does it feature pretty much the regular Apatow players including Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Jay Baruchel and Jason Segel, it also features friends and celebs like Michael Cera, Aziz Ansari, Emma Watson and Rihanna. In short, anybody even vaguely related to Apatow's circle will probably pop up as the movie continues rolling, and speaking of which, the first set pics have landed.

There are two sides to Jonah Hill. The guy who will make jokes about getting to second base with an old man in "The Watch" trailer, and the actor who has been emerging as a major dramatic talent across films like "Cyrus" and, of course, his Oscar-nominated turned "Moneyball." Now he's graduating to the big time.

Partly due to the Trayvon Martin case and also because their hands are already full with "Prometheus," which comes out a month before, Fox has been kind of quiet on "Neighborhood Watch." Until now. They've dropped a foul-mouthed and pretty fucking hilarious red band trailer for the movie that suddenly has put this one on our radar. And oh, by the way, it's now called "The Watch."

On paper, "21 Jump Street" was not an enticing proposition. A reboot of a 1980s TV series with a ludicrous premise -- fresh-faced cops go undercover as high school students. Produced by Neal Moritz, a man whose last attempt at an action-comedy reboot of a famous property was the dreadful "The Green Hornet." Directed by two first-time live-action feature directors. Written by the man behind "Project X." And starring Jonah Hill, coming off a terrible R-rated comedy flop, in "The Sitter," and Channing Tatum, a man whose previous turns weren't so much performed as whittled out of wood. 

Weekend Box Office: '21 Jump Street' Takes The Box Office To School

It really doesn’t matter how popular a show was back in the day - as long as it’s a vaguely recognizable title with a good cast, you’re guaranteed a certain level of results. “SWAT” lasted only one year, memorable mostly for its theme song, and yet the movie version grabbed $37 million back in the summer of 2003. Nine years later, a similar opening has greeted “21 Jump Street,” the television show of which ran for four forgettable years in the late '80s and is more famous for spawning megastar Johnny Depp than for having any great story lines or standout moments.

Early results are looking good -- "21 Jump Street" is poised for a $30 million plus debut, unprecedented for a non-summer R-rated film (read our highly positive review here). Action comedies are a tough sell, but Sony handled this one masterfully, finding a way to guide an older brand name to massive appeal amongst younger audiences (plus hiring two smart directors who knocked the final product out of the park). And now they're ready to do it again, enrolling Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall (co-writer of "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World") to return for scripting duties on a sequel.

In cinema as in life, self-awareness can be a virtue or it can be a deadly thing. Since there’s essentially no such thing as originality, conceding that you’re working within existing parameters or with familiar formulas excuses, and can sometimes enhance, the effectiveness of a lot of necessary decisions that eventually must be made in order to tell a story. Calling too much attention to those choices, however, turns storytelling into parody, characters into punch lines, and any emotional investment that may once have existed into fodder for dismissal, if not derision.
