Looks like T-Rex'll be keeping that slight lead in the kill count race against Velociraptor for a little longer ... and possibly forever.
Universal has pulled an "Ian, FREEZE" on its plans to begin production on "Jurassic Park 4" this summer, thereby opening up its prime release date spot for the "21 Jump Street" sequel to hop into. Get More »
Now, here's a sequel people actually do want to see.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the co-directors on "21 Jump Street," have just accepted the assignment of helming the second installment, which'll send Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) off to college — or, as Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) phrased it, the place where those two cowboys will be allowed to "drink booze, smoke weed with kids, and f**k anything with a big ass in jeans with low self-esteem."

Nostalgia is a funny thing. There's a very fine line between honoring characters, toys, cartoons and movies from the past and exploiting them. So every time a high-profile remake or relaunch comes along, whether it's "Transformers," "Star Wars" or "The A-Team," fans around the country hold their breath. Is it going to be good or is it going to crap all over your childhood again? Get More »
Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »
I don't believe in feeling guilt over what movies I like. Many critics and bloggers and other people who get to say with a straight face that they get paid to think about movies all day will tell you all about "important" movies and other milestones they feel are underappreciated by mainstream audiences, but I personally don't feel like I'm above having a good time at the movie theater.
You won't see "Zero Dark Thirty" on this list, nor will you find "The Master," though I saw both and enjoyed them and took something away from them. They just aren't movies that I can see myself wanting to enjoy again (ever again), unlike the 10 titles that made my admittedly somewhat fluffy year-end list.
2012 was a banner year for movies, and the hits just keep coming (thanks for the time off, winter break! You would need to call in sick to see the array of awesome holiday offerings coming at us before year's end). Read on for my list of my top 10 picks for the year. Get More »
Like every year, 2012 seems to have gone by far too quickly. But, unlike almost every year, 2012 was filled to the brim with great movies. From moving dramas and unforgettable indies to shockingly worthy comedies and actually super superhero blockbusters, Team NextMovie really had a difficult time narrowing down our 25 favorite flicks of the year.
In fact, the only thing we all agreed on unanimously was what film should sit at the very top. What was it? Get More »
This weekend, Vince Vaughn will be battling extraterrestrials alongside Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade in "The Watch," a sci-fi comedy about a group of suburban buddies who suddenly find themselves trying to save Earth from alien takeover.
Before he was warding off space invaders, Vaughn headed to Hollywood via way of Illinois during the early '90s after being cast in a Chevy commercial. He initially struggled with a lot of rejections until he finally landed a few small roles in after-school specials and television shows. Get More »
When undercover cops Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return to high school to expose a drug ring in "21 Jump Street," it is Brie Larson (as a fetching high school student) who distracts Hill from the mission at hand. The 22-year-old actress also sang and acted as one of Scott Pilgrim's exes in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and played Toni Collette's rebellious daughter on three seasons of "United States of Tara."
We sat down with Larson in anticipation of the DVD and Blu-ray release of "21 Jump Street" and put the affable actress on the spot about whether Hill is funnier than Tatum, her favorite scene in the movie and her awkward encounter with Johnny Depp. Get More »
This week: "The Artist" -- the French silent movie that won five Oscars this year, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Costume Design and Best Original Score -- arrives on DVD and Blu-ray at last.
Also new this week are Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the hilarious action comedy "21 Jump Street," Sam Worthington going Greek again in "Wrath of the Titans," the Snow White interpretation "Mirror Mirror," and an anniversary Blu-ray edition of "Deliverance." Get More »
Katniss Everdeen may have survived the Games, but we'll have to see how she fares against Kristen Wiig and her band of crazies — or, rather, ladies — as "The Hunger Games" and "Bridesmaids" lead the 2012 MTV Movie Award nominations with eight apiece, including Movie of the Year.
That's not a typo: The usually dominant "Twilight" series and its 2011 entry, "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," nabbed only two nominations (Movie of the Year and Best Kiss), while movies like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," (six noms) "21 Jump Street" (six) and "The Help" (four) fared better and will have more chances at bringing home Golden Popcorn statues.
