22 Jump Street
There’s been talk of a slow box-office this year. Indeed as of early June, despite big grosses for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “Godzilla” and “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” the box-office was down 12% from 2013. And it has been relatively soft: Tom Cruise’s “Edge Of Tomorrow” vehicle failed to open higher than $30 million and all of the aforementioned summer blockbusters are expected to not pass the $225 million mark at home (a relatively low performance considering the average tentpole). Could it be blockbuster fatigue has already set in? Evidence in favor of that post it this weekend’s box-office as two non-traditionally loud and epic films took off massively to make for $110 million total.

The day has arrived: maybe the most hotly anticipated comedy of the summer, "22 Jump Street," is in theaters today. In fact, it hit last night, and managed a very impressive $5 million midnight number, suggesting an opening around $50-60m, suggesting that Sony will be planning to expand the 'Jump Street' neighborhood further from here (even if directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller may be more reluctant).

Best Directing Duos
This weekend comedy sequel “22 Jump Street” hits theaters, on a wave of goodwill and giggly advance reviews (our own included). For once it seems the usually barren ground of the comedy sequel has yielded something decent, and that is cause for celebration indeed. But already now the question is starting to bubble to the surface: well, why are we surprised? What did we expect? Didn’t we know that the infallible genius directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller are behind it?

Comedy sequel "22 Jump Street" lands on Friday, and as you'll know from our review, it's maybe the best movie of the summer so far, and certainly the funniest. But if you're someone who really hates jokes and laughing, there's some good news for you, because when the film hits DVD & Blu-ray at the end of the year, there'll be an alternate cut of the film without any gags in it.

22 Jump Street
Three elements were highly underrated from “21 Jump Street.": the score by Mark Mothersbaugh, the excellent theme song written by Mothersbaugh, and the overall soundtrack. In fact, it’s kind of crazy that no soundtrack was ever released considering the eclectic hits on it, but for some reason no disc or digital collection ever came out (but you can find all of the songs in the first movie here).

22 Jump Street
Phil Lord and Chris Miller have built a career out of making things work that really should not have worked. Coming off only the short-lived cult animated series "Clone High," and a brief year on "How I Met Your Mother," the duo made their feature debut with "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs," an adaptation of a 34-page children's picture book that looked pretty poor on paper, and turned out to be something of a treat for people of any age. Then, they took on a reboot of '80s cop show "21 Jump Street," starring the much-mocked Channing Tatum, and turned it into a fresh and funny spin on both the high school and the buddy cop movie. And only a few months ago, they turned something called "The Lego Movie" into one of the best films of the year so far.

22 Jump Street
This year's spring/summer comedies either seem to be hitting or missing. Earlier this month, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron scored big with "Neighbors," while this weekend's "A Million Ways To Die In The West" looks like a colossal disaster that commits the one cardinal sin of comedies that don't work: it's not funny. But don't worry, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are on their way.

Channing Tatum’s career will also be spoken of in terms of two periods, before 2012 and after. Not only did the year find Steven Soderbergh giving Tatum some much-needed prestige, clout and weight with “Magic Mike” but more importantly, the world saw how damn funny the beefcake actor could be in the surprise comedy hit “21 Jump Street.” The much-anticipated sequel, “22 Jump Street,” hits theaters next month and a new clip has arrived online to give you a taste of the laughs in store for you.
