Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in The Heat
Earlier today some more details emerged on the sequel to “21 Jump Street,” a film that has taken the slow and steady approach to getting in front of cameras. Production now looks likely to be underway on “21 Jump Street 2” at least 18 months after the first film hit theaters, and that’s a gap that a couple of upcoming comedies are hoping to avoid should their first installments prove a success.

If you were too busy last night watching "Game Of Thrones" and "Mad Men," you likely missed the onslaught of teasers and clips from the MTV Movie Awards. "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Man Of Steel," "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Iron Man 3" were all out in force, but not everything previewed was a special effects blockbuster.

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in The Heat
Everyone loves Melissa McCarthy. With a massive hit under her belt already in 2013 thanks to "Identity Thief" (which has remarkably earned over $130 million at the box office), and having hosted "Saturday Night Live" to some acclaim recently, the actress is looking to ride that momentum into "The Heat" this summer. It's a cop comedy but perhaps unlike one we've seen before with McCarthy pairing up with none other than Sandra Bullock and the first clip from the movie has arrived.

With a gig on the CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" limiting her schedule for making movies, Melissa McCarthy is still looking to tap into the praise and buzz she earned for "Bridesmaids." Her stint in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is more or less a cameo (albeit a great one -- the outtakes of the principal's office scene over the credits were funnier than half the movie) but within six months, audiences are going to be getting a double dose of the comedienne in lead roles. Next month she'll make Jason Bateman's life a living hell in "Identity Thief," and then a few months after that Sandra Bullock will play the straight man alongside McCarthy in "The Heat."

In the span of about five months, audiences are going to see Melissa McCarthy, no holds barred, in three different films: starting this weekend in a memorable appearance in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40," in February in the road trip throwdown "Identity Thief" with Jason Bateman and then in the spring with Sandra Bullock in "The Heat." Is it too much?

What happens when a fussy, by-the-books FBI agent teams up with a street-wise, rule-bending Boston cop? Hilarity, we suppose, but you can see for yourself as the first trailer for "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig's "The Heat" is here.

Director Paul Feig is now exactly where he should be: the world is his oyster after helming the 2011 comedy hit, "Bridesmaids.” A film that went on to become the top grossing R-rated female comedy of all time, domestically surpassing “Sex and the City.” But it actually took a few years and probably a lot longer than it should have. After creating the beloved cult show "Freaks & Geeks" (which was canceled in 2000 after one season of 18 episodes), the writer/director was supposed to take on a young adult novel adaptation called “Stargirl,” but the project never materialized. Instead he Instead he directed the forgettable "Unaccompanied Minors" in 2006. And if that movie was unremarkable, the excellent TV CV that followed -- he directed classic episodes of “Arrested Development,” “The Office,” 30 Rock," "Mad Men," "Bored to Death" and "Parks and Recreation" -- perhaps hinted at what was to come.

It's 'Parental Guidance Suggested' For Selena Gomez; B.J Novak Is Robert Sherman; Michael McDonald Feels 'The Heat' & More

Disney pop princess Selena Gomez has earned a considerable amount of respect from us for allowing her film roles to stray pretty far away from her squeaky clean image that made her name. With a cameo role in the Eli Roth-starring earthquake thriller “Aftershock” and a revealing supporting part alongside James Franco in the Harmony Kormine-directed “Spring Breakers,” it would look as if the days of typical teenage dreck like “Monte Carlo” are at least partially in her rearview. Gomez is now set to star opposite Nat Wolff in a coming-of-age rock 'n roll comedy "Parental Guidance Suggested," based on the Ric Browde book “While I'm Dead...Feed the Dog,” which centers on a rock infused journey of a 16-year-old named Ric Thibault (Wolff) and his crush Nina Pennington (Gomez). It’s not exactly the ballsy material we were just priding her for taking part in, but she could do a lot worse. Dylan McDermott, Cary Elwes, and Austin Stowell will co-star.
