    Weekend Box Office: 'Hunger Games' Scores Third Highest Opening In Box Office History With Massive $155 Million Haul

    Who’s hungry? “The Hunger Games” proceeded to predictably beat the stuffing out of the box office, scoring $155 million, the third-highest opening weekend in history, and highest for a non-sequel. The fan base came out in full force, no doubt, but so did the normals, as the books don’t (yet) have ne...

    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...

    Jonah Hill And Michael Bacall Scripting A Return Visit To '21 Jump Street'

    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...

    23 High School Movies That Get The Passing Grade

    Considering it's where most of us (bar the weird home-schooled kids) spend our crucial formative years, where we have our first fights, our first loves, our first tentative steps into adulthood, it's no surprise that high school has long been a popular setting for a movie. A range of genres (but gen...

    '21 Jump Street' Directors Chris Miller & Phil Lord Talk Deleted Scenes For DVD, Shooting Action & More

    One of the biggest compliments you can pay a movie like the new Jonah Hill/Channing Tatum vehicle "21 Jump Street" -- based on a old television property and seemingly hatched inside a coldly cynical meeting between studio chiefs and big-name action producers (in this case "Fast and Furious" overseer...

    All The Songs From The '21 Jump Street' Soundtrack Including Eminem, The Clash, N.W.A., Foster The People & More

    Bigger and badder than anything Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have done before, "21 Jump Street" is the kind of action comedy that is getting labels like "instant classic" thrown around (okay, maybe we said that). And while the movie has been marketed hard, one thing you won'...

    Review: '21 Jump Street' Is A Hilarious, Heartfelt Action-Comedy That Just Might Be An Instant Classic

    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 dec...
