    10 Reasons Why '21 Jump Street' Exceeded Expectations

    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 &...

    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 s...

    SXSW Video: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Filmmakers Talk Comedy Home Run '21 Jump Street'

    Whatever question there might be about how well a smart horror parody like SXSW opener "Cabin the Woods" will do with mainstream audiences, there is none with updated buddy cop comedy "21 Jump Street," which also played well at the Paramount Theater here, and will prove a huge b.o. home run.

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 dec...

    New Trailer, Poster for '21 Jump Street,' Plus German 'Avengers' Trailer

    If there's one potentially awful big screen remake of a classic (maybe the word classic should have been in ironic quotes) that we're looking forward to, it's "21 Jump Street." There's really no reason this thing should work - it's a comedic take on a dramatic series, w...
