Red Band Trailer: ‘22 Jump Street' - June 13th
Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, starring Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Rob Riggle and Dave Franco.
'21 Jump Street' had little business being as funny and successful as it was, but I'm so glad to see these characters (and welcome returning faces) back in action. The meta joke of '22 Jump Street' is handled well and they're ascension to college, while predictable is fitting. The trailer lands a few jokes courtesy of Jonah Hill, so I'm looking forward to the comedy they can once again ring out of Channing Tatum.

Well this is awkward …
‘EW’ with Jimmy and Channing Tatum
Chris Pratt is set to voice the pic’s lead character, while Will Arnett will voice the role of Lego Batman. Helmers are courting Channing Tatum to voice Superman, though he has not committed due to his busy schedule.
Sounds like there is a lot of information floating around now that suggest it wasn’t 3D conversion that got G.I.JOE: Retaliation pushed back to 2013, but actually Paramount wanting to add in more Channing Tatum scenes. With ‘21 Jump Street’ being critically well received and ‘Magic Mike’ tracking with high numbers, Paramount might have changed their mind in killing off Channing Tatum in the beginning of the film. It’s not a spoiler to say that, but he’s not seen in any of the trailers beyond the opening part of the film where most of the JOE’s get murdered.
It’s sounding more and more like those reshoots are less about adding in more 3D specific scenes, but putting more Channing Tatum in the movie. This seems odd to me since the two biggest stars of the first G.I.JOE were largely blamed for people hating the movie even if it made a good deal of money. Simply stating that a 3D conversion of the film is what caused it to get pushed back seems like such weird last minute decision. The 3D market isn’t there domestically, unless foreign audiences truly love 3D films.
This week in EW: Channing Tatum and the cast of Magic Mike bare (almost) all. EW brought Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, and Matt Bomer back together for a wet and wild photo shoot followed by a rowdy, booze-soaked dinner, where the costars swapped their best stories about acting, waxing, and stripping in their new film.
