'21 Jump Street': THR's 1987 Review

On April 12, 1987, Fox aired a two-hour Sunday night premiere of undercover cop series 21 Jump Street. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

Cops under cover, in this case cops who look like teens, is the centerpiece of this new Fox network special, a two-hour screening of the series 21 Jump Street

And according to Fox press info, stuff shown on 21 is material based on "an actual top secret police program." Anyway, that's what the press packet says. 

Another hook to the series is the score; every episode is musically wrapped around a recent hit LP. Consequently,...

Ranking The Films Of Dwayne Johnson – From Worst To Best

Dwayne Johnson is arguably the biggest movie star on the planet right now. His name alone can pretty much guarantee tens of millions of dollars at the international box-office, and so far, his films have made over $3 billion around the world.

This weekend sees the release of his next big feature, the monster mash Rampage, which is based on the 1980s Midway arcade game where three gigantic creatures face off against one-another. The film is another sure-fire hit for Johnson, and to celebrate its release, we thought we look back at his movies to date and rank all of the ones where he leads the cast from worst to best.

So, without further ado…

Baywatch

Released in 2017, Baywatch had such lofty expectations, but sadly the update of the famous 1990s TV show didn’t quite match the quality of more successful action comedies like 21 Jump Street and its sequel,

Alden Ehrenreich Likens Solo: A Star Wars Story To Han’s “Biopic”

The Solo: A Star Wars Story blowout continues apace. And Ron Howard’s prequel is certainly making up for any lost time.

Barring February’s initial Super Bowl teaser, the standalone Lucasfilm pic had lain dormant for months, leading many to believe that the studio was quietly bracing for a box office flop. To make matters worse, Solo is emerging from a troubled spell in production, during which time Howard was brought in to replace the outgoing Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street), who were removed from their post due to creative differences over the film’s screenplay and general sense of tone. Too much humor, not enough Star Wars, essentially.

Nevertheless, just like Rogue One before it, Solo: A Star Wars Story has emerged relatively unscathed, with stunning, sun-kissed posters and full-length trailers now littering the interwebs. Indeed, it’s an exciting time for fans of Han Solo,

Jenna Dewan Is Spotted Without Her Wedding Ring After Announcing Split From Channing Tatum
Jenna Dewan stepped out sans an accessory she’s been wearing for nearly nine years: her wedding ring.

After announcing her split from Channing Tatum on Monday, the 37-year-old actress and dancer headed out in Los Angeles on Saturday donning a denim dress that fell past her knees and black heels. She wore a necklace and sunglasses, but her silver band was noticeably missing from her left ring finger.

Dewan was still wearing her wedding ring while heading to a yoga class just hours before People exclusively confirmed the split on Monday.

“Jenna seemed a little gloomier than usual but otherwise okay,

New Trading Cards Confirm The Name Of Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Villain

Denny’s, yes, you read that correctly, Denny’s has confirmed the name of Solo: A Star Wars Story’s villain via a marketing campaign for the restaurant chain’s collaboration with Topps trading cards and Lucasfilm’s latest blockbuster.

Earlier today, it was revealed that Enfys Nest will indeed be the villain’s name in Ron Howard’s upcoming Star Wars spinoff. Denny’s validated the antagonist’s alias, which had been floating around for weeks now, through the unveiling of their new Star Wars-inspired menu alongside a set of Topps trading cards that fans can collect, the proceeds of which go towards the charity, No Kid Hungry, to help combat child hunger.

In addition to confirming the Solo villain’s handle, the set uncloaked several new characters from the spinoff, too. You can check out a sneak peek at some of the trading cards below and see for

Ron Howard Confirms That New Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer Is On The Way

If even a shred of Vulture’s expose on Solo: A Star Wars Story is true, then erstwhile directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller lost control of their galactic adventure. And fast.

Prior to Lucasfilm’s decision to part ways with the filmmaking duo, whose work spans The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, Lord and Miller allegedly “felt the pressure” and began shooting multiple takes of the same scene in order to encourage the same improvisational comedy and off-the-cuff jokes synonymous with their previous work.

Such a method of approach was clearly at odds with Lucasfilm’s rebooted Star Wars saga, leading the Powers That Be to appoint Ron Howard in their place. And though it does sound like the seasoned vet was able to get things back on track, fans are still a little on the fence about the upcoming Anthology pic – and understandably so.

Former Solo Director Chimes In On Recent Rumors: “Don’t Believe Everything You Read”

If even a shred of Vulture’s expose on Solo: A Star Wars Story is true, then erstwhile directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller lost control of their galactic adventure. And fast.

Such a method of approach was clearly at odds with Lucasfilm’s rebooted Star Wars saga, leading the Powers That Be to appoint Ron Howard in their place. And though that may be true, Chris Miller took to Twitter late last night to downplay Vulture’s allegations, writing, “don’t believe everything you read.”

Captain Marvel: Every Update You Need To Know

Captain Marvel is Marvel’s first female-led superhero film as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, casting an actress in the role of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, was a long and arduous process, just as it was casting every other major character in the McU. A number of actresses vied and tested for the role, but it eventually went to Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson (Room, 21 Jump Street), who officially joined the shared universe in 2016.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk Breaking Barriers with ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ at the Glas Animation Festival

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk Breaking Barriers with ‘Into the Spider-Verse’ at the Glas Animation Festival
The third annual Glas Animation Festival (Global Animation Syndicate) in Berkeley got a major boost last weekend with the appearance of Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“The Lego Movie”). The duo discussed success, failure, and how they’re pushing boundaries with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (December 21), which they are producing. They also announced that they are taking executive producer credit on “Solo: A Star Wars Story” (May 25), which they noisily departed as directors last year after being replaced by director Ron Howard.

Although they credited their successful partnership with being “horrifically relentless and willing to change things to continually improve the project,” Lord and Miller ran into irreconcilable differences over the particular production demands of the “Star Wars” franchise.

“We are very proud of our many contributions to the film. In light of the creative differences on ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story,’ we have elected to take an executive producer credit on the film,

Who Is Cable in Deadpool 2?
Josh Brolin has come a long way from the Goonies, Thrashin' and the bad guy of the week opposite Johnny Depp in a killer episode of 21 Jump Street. And right after he's finished gathering up those space macguffins in Avengers: Infinity War, we will see Brolin step away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to mix it up with Fox's world of merry mutants in Deadpool 2. Hollywood rights issues kept X-Men related characters from interacting with the rest of the Marvel Universe onscreen, but that can't stop our favorite actors from crossing over as different characters. And given the Fox and Disney deal, and Wade Wilson's fourth wall breaking irreverence, we won't be surprised to hear some McU related jokes in Deadpool 2.

Phil Lord And Chris Miller Won’t Get Director’s Credit On Solo: A Star Wars Story

Last June, the Star Wars world was rocked when it was announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been removed from Solo: A Star Wars Story due to that old chestnut of “creative differences,” with Ron Howard stepping on board to complete the rest of the production. The full story never exactly came to light, so it was hard to tell how much of the finished product would be Lord and Miller’s.

Now, though, we have some sort of idea and from the sounds of it, not too much of their footage was left in, as it’s come to light that the duo won’t be receiving a director’s credit on the movie. Lord and Miller made the announcement while talking at the third annual Glas Animation Festival Friday in Berkeley, California. The filmmakers told the audience that it was at least partly their decision as

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’: Phil Lord and Chris Miller Reveal Their Credit
While speaking at the third annual Glas Animation Festival Friday in Berkeley, Calif., Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed the credit they elected to take on “Solo: A Star Wars Story” after their shocking mid-production exit as directors of the movie last year.

The directors, who also helmed “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street,” said they’re taking an executive producer credit on the “Star Wars” spinoff.

“We were really proud of the many contributions we made to that film,” Miller told the audience. “In light of the creative differences, we elected to take an executive producer credit.”

Ron Howard took the helm of directing the film once Lord and Miller left the project. The duo added that they wished everyone working on the film the best.

Miller and Lord used their Glas panel Friday to retell their career from meeting in high school to their latest projects. Starting

Former Solo: A Star Wars Story Directors Reveal Their Credit

Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be credited as Executive Producers on Solo: A Star Wars Story come May. Lucasfilm made a major shakeup last summer when it was announced that Lord and Miller had left Solo as directors. The 21 Jump Street duo was hired to infuse Star Wars with some new, young blood, and they would’ve done just that with a younger version of Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich. Unfortunately, they left (or were possibly fired) from the blockbuster following creative differences when it came to the film’s tone, story, and even the day-to-day operations of production.

Rob Riggle Fought For Dramatic Role In 'Midnight Sun'

  • CineMovie
Rob Riggle often tickles our funny bone as the comic relief in many of his movies (21 Jump Street, The Hangover) and television projects. We've also often seen the comedian play military and authoritative types (12 Strong, Let's Be Cops) given his tall statue and military background, but this time he wanted to play up the sensitive side of a character. Riggle's tells Sabina Graves how he fought for the role as a single father to an teen (played by Bella Thorne) suffering from a rare disease in Midnight Sun. Watch the interview below.
