We've been hearing about a sequel to "Zoolander" for several years. And now comes word that Paramount Pictures is officially moving with the new movie, which will be directed by Justin Theroux. The big news is that Penelope Cruz just signed on for a role in "Zoolander 2," which will bring back Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell. The original only grossed $60 million worldwide, which is why the studio has been slow to greenlit the sequel. But after the great performance of "Dumb and Dumber To," studios are once again looking at their properties for a potential revival. Jonah Hill was previously rumored to play the villain in a story about Derek (Stiller) getting hired to be a personal model for an Arab Sheikh and learning that models are being turned into oil. »
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 opens in theaters this week and, as expected, leading lady Jennifer Lawrence has been making the publicity rounds and, as expected, she’s been totally charming and lovable. (Not too many stars can get away with singing this terribly and still be endearing.) J. Law not only steadfastly remains America’s Sweetheart, but she only seems to be getting better at it. Whether she’s facing the celebrity nudes leak scandal head on or making a Gif-worthy funny face, the admiration for the Oscar-winning actress still seems to know no bounds. While the outspoken star has had her share of critics thanks to some of her seemingly insensitive comments or misconstrued jokes about Meryl Streep, there’s been no major backlash or outcry. In Hollywood, Lawrence is pretty infallible, but she’s not the only one. Here are 12 other stars that seem »
“I think that we could all do with a healthy dose of disillusionment,” remarks director Bennett Miller while recently speaking in Chicago about his new film Foxcatcher. It’s a statement delivered with his zen garden-like tone (Mark Ruffalo’s words, not mine), and with truth concerning his dramatic pursuits as a storyteller. Foxcatcher, like his previous projects Capote and Moneyball, explores characters and systems that audiences may recognize, but with dramatic ambition then seeks to unravel it in a colder light.
A riveting true story about Olympic wrestling brothers Mark and David Schultz (Channing Tatum and Ruffalo, respectively) and the billionaire who wanted to own their glory (Steve Carell), Foxcatcher is an observational drama on the morose results of the American Dream, and the ideals that create selfish ambition. Miller is certainly aiming high with his material, and mostly achieves this desired prominence with the help of larger-than-life performances. »

One of the most popular elements of this year’s widely successful The Lego Movie was Will Arnett’s Batman. So popular was he that he’s getting his own spin-off movie in 2017. Speaking out the movie to Empire, Phil Lord and Chris (who will serve as producers on the movie) gave some insights as to what we can expect.
“Rest assured, every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged,” Lord said.
“There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there,” Miller added. “There are 40 versions of his origin story alone.”
Lord and Miller will return to direct The Lego Movie 2, which they have promised will feature more female characters.

It turns out you weren't the only one who couldn't stop laughing during "22 Jump Street." Star Jonah Hill also had a hard time keeping a straight face, as evidenced in a new outtake featured on the film's new DVD and Blu-ray. Co-star Rob Riggle's bug-eyed prisoner routine makes Hill giggle so hard that he can't even finish one sentence, much to the amusement of Channing Tatum and Dave Franco. The best part of the video is that it shows the action from four different angles simultaneously. It's like film school, only the dirty words are bleeped out. Watch it on MTV.com. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("The Lego Movie"), "22" also stars Ice Cube, Peter Stormare, Amber Stevens, Nick Offerman and Jillian Bell. The DVD and Blu-ray release also includes deleted and extended scenes, featurettes, audio commentary with Tatum, Hill, Lord and Miller, and "The Dramatic Interpretation »

Heading into the holidays, the studios are putting together plenty of Blu-rays of recent box office hits, along with special gift sets for purchase. This week, you can head back to college with 22 Jump Street or check out some wild tornadoes in Into The Storm. Check them out, below. 22 Jump Street Blu-ray 22 Jump Street is not for the faint-hearted. It.s also not for people who haven.t caught the first film in the franchise, 21 Jump Street. The genius of the sequel relies on a basic familiarity with the buddy cop dynamic and the basic plot structure of the original. Its clever plot relentlessly pokes fun at both. Fortunately, it also finds time to tell a pretty good story, too. 22 Jump Street finds Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) back from the original movie, taking on college this time around rather than high school. The two are introduced to »

Nothing gets us giddy quite like an epic celebrity movie cameo.
An A-lister who appears in an often uncredited role with minimal screen time and, we have no idea it's coming — how could we not love that?!
Alfred Hitchcock was the cameo master of his time, appearing in 39 of his 52 surviving films. People loved searching for him like a real life Where's Waldo. Even more recently, Interstellar blew us away with a crazy unexpected cameo that we don't want to give away quite yet…but it got us thinking about other unexpected appearances in movies!
So let's take a look at some of our favorite film cameos of all-time.
Warning: Possible Spoilers Ahead.
Johnny Depp -- 21 Jump Street
Johnny Depp paid perfect homage to his 21 Jump Street roots. Spending most of the role in disguise, he ultimately reveals his identity leaving Jonah Hill's character to declare, "You're like an amazing actor man!"

If you thought 22 Jump Street effectively knee-capped any possibility of a third round of misadventures for Schmidt and Jenko, you weren’t alone. A running joke in the sequel was the redundancy of sequels, and that film’s credit sequence openly mocked the idea of future installments, presenting a slew of ridiculous posters for movies like 25 Jump Street: A Semester at Sea and 30 Jump Street: Flight School. Now, however, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have again teased the possibility of an actual 23 Jump Street.
The sound bite came during Lord and Miller’s interview with Empire Magazine, in which they discussed plans for The Lego Movie 2, The Lego Batman Movie and more. When asked about the possibility of bringing Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum back for a Jump Street threequel, Miller’s answer came as a big surprise:
Miller: “It’s quite possible. We’ve been developing something with Rodney Rothman, »

“They’re not 21 anymore,” brags one tagline for 22 Jump Street, and that self-aware groaner is a good indication of much of the comedy that fuels the proceedings in this bigger-but-not-better sequel. Returning directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, along with returning writer Michael Bacall (credited alongside Oren Uziel and Rodney Rothman this time around), clearly understand the inevitable triteness of most follow-ups and, in a savvy move that still isn’t a complete slam-dunk, make that part of the joke.
What real reason was there to catch up with Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) after they successfully busted the high school drug ring they were sent undercover to infiltrate in 21 Jump Street? Outside of box office receipts, perhaps the simple answer is just that there were more laughs to be had. This sequel isn’t particularly interested in deepening the bond between our protagonists or completely revamping the »

"22 Jump Street"
Can Chris Miller and Phil Lord make anything entertaining? When "21 Jump Street" the movie was announced, it seemed utterly ludicrous, if not downright insulting. Yet here we are enjoying the sequel, digging on the continued doofy adventures of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum). What's next, a dazzling movie about Legos?!
"20,000 Days on Earth"
This documentary about writer and musician Nick Cave is just as weird and wonderful as its subject. It's a must-see for fans of Cave's oeuvre, but even if you don't know a Boy Next Door from a Bad Seed, you'll get a kick out of this strange film. Featuring appearances by Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone, Warren Ellis, and Blixa Bargeld.

He may be best known for his 1980s film career, but Christopher Lambert is headed for the 1950s, and we don’t mean in a DeLorean.

"The reason I took the project mainly is because of Robert Downey Jr," Duvall praised. "We spent many good times together."
