The Lego Movie is set to land on DVD and Blu-ray this coming June...
Few films so far this year have been such a geeky treasure trove of joy as Chris Miller and Phil Lord's The Lego Movie. Featuring a song that lives in your ears seemingly for the rest of time - that'd be Everything Is Awesome - the film is set to be watched lots and lots of times when the DVD and Blu-ray release comes around. That's in addition to the many times it's already been seen at the cinema - its worldwide box office haul to date stands at $424m.
A date, at least in the Us, for the DVD and Blu-ray has now been revealed too. And The Lego Movie will be arriving on home formats on June 17th 2014. We don't have a UK release date yet, but »
Along with last night's barrage of TV spots for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Edge of Tomorrow, Hercules and A Million Ways to Die in the West, there's one more TV spot for what could be the biggest comedy of the summer: 22 Jump Street. The TV spot doesn't feature much footage from the latest red band trailer, but it does include the new ending from the previous green band trailer, not to mention some other funny new bits featuring our duo on spring break. It's clear there's going to be a lot more action than the first film, and that's just fine with us as long as the comedy delivers as well. Here's the first TV spot for Phil Lord & Chris Miller's 22 Jump Street from Sony Pictures: 22 Jump Street is directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Lego Movie »

Because gender equality is also awesome, "The Lego Movie 2" will have a bigger female presence, according to director Chris McKay. Beyond its prominent heroine Wildstyle (voiced by Elizabeth Banks), "The Lego Movie" features few female characters, although Wildstyle has multiple interactions with Unikitty (Alison Brie). The rest of the film's main characters are played by Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson, while Cobie Smulders voices Wonder Woman in a cameo role. "I’m not sure our movie passes the Bechdel test entirely and I think that it's important," McKay admitted to Daily Mail Online. "We have a lot of producers [who] were female who had concerns and we were always constantly saying to ourselves: 'Are we just a bunch of white guys sitting here making this movie from our own myopic point of view?'" The Bechdel Test, so named for acclaimed comic writer Alison Bechdel ("Fun »

The Lego Movie currently stands as the most successful film of 2014, and though that will definitely change by the year’s end, its $410 million haul at the global box office is nothing to shake a stick at. Warner Bros. were quick to capitalize on its monumental success and critical acclaim, immediately announcing a sequel for May 26th, 2017, which will be helmed by the first film’s co-animation director, Chris McKay.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be stepping into a producing role this time around, but with his experience on shows like Robot Chicken and Titan Maximum in addition to his role on The Lego Movie, McKay has proven that he’s got the chops to recapture the magic of the first film. Or so we hope.

Most directors are lucky to have one smash hit in a given year. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are about to have two. Fresh off of the success of The Lego Movie, Lord and Miller are releasing 22 Jump Street, once again starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as a mismatched pair of undercover cops. […]

According to Schmoes Know, Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow has taken on directing duties on Sony’s long-gestating live-action Masters of the Universe reboot, filling the space in the director’s chair vacated by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). Wadlow has recently penned the script for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off X-Force, and should this He-Man rumour prove true, it would seem that Fox will need to find another director to bring Cable, Deadpool and company to the screen.
Sony has been developing Masters since 2009, and in 2010 the studio hired Mike Finch and Alex Litvak to draft a script, which was entitled Greyskull. The script has subsequently been rewritten by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) and Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), while the likes of Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), Kirk DeMicco »

The Summer Movie Season is long and full of sequels, though one of this year’s more anticipated followups doesn’t feature superheroes, but power-couple Jenko and Schmidt back together in 22 Jump Street. While the original 21 Jump Street movie reboot was a surprise hit back in 2012, the second installment is one of this year’s more buzzed-about new arrivals; that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s first release of 2014, The Lego Movie, was also an unexpected critical/box office success, has only heightened interest in the next trip to Jump Street.
Fortunately, the trailers for 22 Jump Street have been quite entertaining so far, suggesting that Lord and Miller could have another home run on their hands. The sequel picks back up with goofball cops Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill), who are now going undercover at a ...

A new red-band trailer for 22 Jump Street is here, featuring more foul-mouthed antics from two of the worst/best cops ever; Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. The sequel to the surprise hit 21 Jump Street has the duo reteaming for another big-time drug dealing case, only this time they head to college instead of high school. Directed once again by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), the film brings back a good amount of the cast from the first film, including Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, »

It's loud, explode-y, and very sweary. Here's the final red band trailer for comedy sequel, 22 Jump Street...
Comedy film adaptations of old TV shows don't necessarily fare well, but 21 Jump Street succeeded where others failed. With a great comedy pairing in the form of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, and a knowingly irreverent tone - Nick Offerman's "Hollywood's run out of ideas" line is a cracker - 21 Jump Street emerged as an unexpectedly funny hit.
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, fresh off the success of The Lego Movie, are back again with 22 Jump Street, which sees Hill and Tatum's characters head to college for what Ice Cube tells us is " the same case". The same chemistry and tone seems to be present and correct, so bear in mind that the red band trailer below is decidedly not safe for work. You have been warned. »
"It's the same case, do the same thing!" If you still need convincing that 22 Jump Street is worth seeing, Sony/Columbia has released a fourth trailer - another red band trailer that is a 2-and-1/2-minute push for this insane summer action comedy sequel, starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum (also in Jupiter Ascending). While we've seen plenty in the first three trailers already, the footage in this one includes lots of the story as well, hinting at their comeback, the plot involving college and spring breaker. So, it's a Spring Breakers riff, plus 21 Jump Street comedy all in one? I hope it's as funny as these trailers promise. Enjoy. Here's the final red band trailer for Phil Lord & Chris Miller's 22 Jump Street, direct from YouTube: 22 Jump Street is directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Lego Movie) and written by Michael Bacall (21 Jump Street, »

First Harold Ramis passed away, then director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) dropped out of "Ghostbusters 3." And considering that Bill Murray has no interest in returning, many thought it was a good idea to just let the third installment die. But then came word that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) signed on to direct "Ghostbusters 3," putting the project back on the right track. Unfortunately, it didn't take much for the two helmers to also drop out. Now, during a new interview, Reitman confirmed that Murray will not return, but revealed that the project is far from dead. "We have a great script that doesn't really require much from any of the original Ghostbusters," he explained. "The two that are still interested would be in it, and a few of the other characters." Regarding why he isn't directing, Reitman said: "The death of Harold really threw me. »
Strictly professional police officers Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) are back, and after graduating from high school in 21 Jump Street they’re moving on to bigger and better things in 22 Jump Street. Specifically, they’re going to college, the home of academic fervor and highbrow maturity.
Before that, however, these two crime-fighters go undercover to investigate a Mexican drug cartel in the first full clip from the movie. This scene was featured briefly in an alternate ending to the trailer for 22 Jump Street, but the extended version features even more of Jenko’s painful attempts at sounding Latino.
As with the original reboot, 22 Jump Street was directed by filmmaking duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who have already had one major success this year with animated comedy The Lego Movie, and who recently ...

Directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller are quickly becoming some of the most exciting filmmakers working today, and luckily we don’t have to wait long for their follow-up to February’s delightful The Lego Movie. The directors are currently putting the finishing touches on their upcoming comedy sequel 22 Jump Street (which we here at Collider are very much looking forward to), and the first clip from the follow-up has now arrived online. The film finds Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill’s characters taking their undercover operation to a college campus, and in this first 22 Jump Street clip we see that the two also get involved with a drug cartel (led by Peter Stormare, natch). Unfortunately, Tatum’s character has a bit of trouble nailing down a particular accent. Hit the jump to watch the clip, and if you missed any of Dave’s set visit coverage be sure to check »

(Cbr) Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the director duo responsible for "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street", were recently linked to Sony’s "Ghostbusters 3". But it turns out they might not believe in ghosts after all. According to The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider, Miller and Lord have walked away from the long-discussed project after briefly flirting with the possibility of directing the comedy reboot. Fleming already hinted at it here, but I'm told Ruben Fleischer has fallen off Disney's Overnight... http://t.co/anJpLuheLH — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) April 7, 2014 The news comes after Ivan Reitman, director of the first two "Ghostbusters" movies, walked away from the developing sequel — a decision motivated at least in part by the death of Harold Ramis. Reitman remains a producer on the project, and in a recent interview with Spinoff Online, he revealed what "Ghostbusters 3" might look like. “I think there’s an appropriate story to tell, »

After spending years stuck in development, it looked like Ghostbusters 3 might finally be moving forward when Phil Lord and Chris Miller were announced last month as being in talks with Sony to helm the sequel.
The news came seemingly out of nowhere, with the co-directors coming off the back of a hugely successful return to animation in The Lego Movie, after making a name for themselves with 21 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in recent years.
Now it looks like the duo aren’t going to be boarding the project after all, with Jeff Sneider taking to Twitter to reveal that he’s heard the co-directors ultimately decided to walk away from the job.

A couple weeks ago, it was reported that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who have directed a string of hit films together, The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, were Sony's top choice to replace Ivan Reitman for Ghostbusters 3. Based on a recent tweet from Jeff Sneider, Sony will have to look elsewhere. Hearing Lord & Miller ended up walking away from Ghostbusters 3 job. They were the studio's choice but wanted to keep their options open... — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) April 7, 2014 “The Lego® Movie,” the first-ever, full-length theatrical Lego® adventure, from Warner Bros.

Lord and Miller are currently working on 22 Jump Street, which is released on June 13.

When it comes to taking rather dubious movie concepts and making the best of them, directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller seem to have mastered the art. After making their feature debut with animated culinary adventure Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, the pair went on to cook up a surprisingly good movie version of 21 Jump Street and the endlessly fun toy tie-in The Lego Movie.
If there was ever a property in need of Lord and Miller’s revival techniques it was Ghostbusters 3, a project that has been gathering dust for decades despite many efforts to get it moving. When it transpired that the pair were in talks to helm the project after Ivan Reitman relinquished ...

The closest Hollywood has to a giant game of (spectral) snakes-and-ladders, Ghostbusters 3 is the project that will neither go away nor come to fruition. Instead, like Vigo the Carpathian in his portrait, it’s mired in a strange limbo now reinforced by rumours that Phil Lord and Chris Miller won’t be Janosz-ing it into life on the big screen after all.The pair are a current golden duo in Hollywood with a string of surprisingly terrific films – Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie – behind them in their careers to date. The rumour that they were in talks to grab the new Ghostbusters project, nurtured for long and with such cussedness by Dan Aykroyd, made a lot of sense: here was another tricky-looking project that might just have been brought to life by their funny, irreverent and self-referential touch.Seemingly, however, they have »
Who you gonna call? Not Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Last month most of you were happy The Lego Movie directors were in talks with Sony to helm Ghostbusters 3, but apparently they have turned the job down. The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider recently tweeted the news, and he says, "They were the studio's choice but wanted to keep their options open..." While it sucks Lord and Miller won't be directing the film, it also makes sense since they're »
