Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill joined their cast and a large group of rowdy college students equipped with a DJ, foam fingers and a bazooka t-shirt launcher that Tatum could not resist at the premiere of “22 Jump Street” Tuesday night at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, Calif.
This time around everyone seemed to be more at ease when it came to making the sequel, especially Tatum who wasn’t sure he would be funny enough when he signed on for “21 Jump Street.”
“This time he was much more comfortable,” said co-director Christopher Miller. “He’s even better this time. He was more confident. The first time he was worried that he might be embarrassed, but this time he had no trepidation at all.”

Nathan Fisher (Bryan Greenberg), the protagonist of Michael Maren’s wistful family comedy A Short History of Decay, is a blocked Brooklyn writer who gets dumped by his gorgeous live-in girlfriend, Erika (Emmanuelle Chriqui), for having (essentially) no purpose in life. A short time later, he learns that his father, Bob (Harris Yulin), has had a stroke. After pleading with Erika for sympathy, Nathan flies to his parents’ spacious home in Sarasota, Florida, where his dad is recovering and his mom, Sandy (Linda Lavin), is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s. Nathan sits around feeling sorry for himself, chats up a French girl (Rebecca Dayan) at a bar, has lunch with his mother’s sunny manicurist (Kathleen Rose Perkins), and bickers with his parents and visiting older brother (Benjamin King), a lobbyist. Not a lot happens, and yet, as in the best so-called “slice of life” stories, you feel »

Chriqui's performance brings out the harpy in Erika, but the eventual fate of her character's artistic ambitions leads one to suspect that the film itself is out to get her.
Fortunately, the story soon gets its bearings. A 35-year-old would-be writer with little to show for his efforts besides unfinished work on his hard drive and unsteady gigs proofreading ads, Nathan heads to Florida when his father (Harris Yulin) has a stroke.
To add to Nathan's problems, his mother (Linda Lavin) suffers from Alzheimer's. Fortunately, A Short History of Decay avoids th »

After booking what will likely be a thankless role in Adam Sandler's "Pixels," we began to worry that producers didn't know what to do with "True Detective" star Michelle Monaghan. Luckily, we were wrong. There are still some interesting roles headed toward the actress, you may just have to look harder to find them. Claudia Myers writes and directs this drama about a woman and soldier who returns home from five years in Afghanistan and tries to become a mother again, to a young son who doesn't recognize or remember her. The story follows her journey as she tries to walk the line between her duty as a parent and a patriot. It's an interesting take on the war drama, and, while the notes seem familiar, here's hoping it's the actors who bring it up a level or two. Co-starring Ron Livingston, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Freddy Rodriguez, Dash Mihok and more, »

Fear can be a strange thing. It can pop up at unexpected moments, and for unexplainable reasons. While some people can have irrational fears of things like clowns and spiders, there are a select few who fear places meant to be a safe haven for people in their time of need. A place that always seems to garner a mixed feeling of either dread or serenity is a hospital. They’re big buildings full of many individuals, and yet they always feel so empty. It could be the dull colors, the odd silence, or the cold that drifts down its many dark hallways that makes one uneasy. Or maybe it’s the aroma of rubbing alcohol and latex that triggers an unpleasant past experience for a person. All of these things are enough to make one think of a horror movie, because they are the perfect setting for disastrous events. »

It looks like a certain entourage will be growing by one. Emmanuelle Chriqui was spotted sporting a fake baby bump on the set of the upcoming Entourage movie in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Hmm, does this mean that Sloan and Eric are about to become proud parents? After all, Kevin Connolly was there shooting a scene with Chriqui as they strolled through a park together. Well, fans will definitely find out for sure when the film based on the hit HBO series hits theaters sometime in 2015. It was back in October when it was officially announced the project was actually happening. "It's a go. love you all," show creator Doug Ellin tweeted at the time, along with a photo of the »
The Entourage movie is currently shooting, and while most of the pictures from the set have shown the guys hanging out, that's pretty much the most we've seen. Until now: these pictures of Kevin Connolly and Emmanuelle Chriqui reveal that Eric and Sloan are indeed still together (or at least appear to be). The movie will pick up six months after the events in the finale, which if you recall, showed Eric and Sloan getting back together after he finds out she's pregnant. So here they are, with Chriqui rocking an adorable baby bump on set. Are you happy for them or what? View Slideshow › »

The Entourage just keeps growing! Sure to be one of the sexiest stars in the upcoming film, ‘Blurred Lines’ and Gone Girl star Emily Ratajkowski will play herself, while a number of returning cast members from the HBO show including Debi Mazar, Rex Lee, Constance Zimmer and Nora Dunn will also be making an appearance. Now we have only left to speculate which one of the beloved Entourage characters will be getting most screen time with Ms Ratajkowski. My money is on Vincent Chase himself!
Missing none of the original cast members, the Entourage movie will star Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven, as well as Perrey Reeves as Ari Gold’s wife, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Sloan and Rhys Coiro as Billy Walsh. Also starring are Billy Bob Thornton and Haley Joel Osment as father and son Larsen and Travis McCredle.
