The Japanese trailer for Jupiter Ascending doesn't provide a whole lot of new insight on the space opera from The Wachowskis, but it does reveal some new visuals that look like they were ripped from the cover of a sci fi paperback.
Channing Tatum proved to be 21 Jump Street's secret weapon, unleashing a comedic presence nobody knew he had.
It makes sense, then, that this new version of the 22 Jump Street trailer gives Tatum the last laugh.
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller began their careers as writers and producers on the popular TV show How I Met Your Mother, and have since gone on to produce the Golden Globe-winning series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. They soon made the leap to the big screen when they wrote and directed the popular animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Then in 2012 Lord and Miller directed their first live-action movie with the box office hit 21 Jump Street, and they are currently busy working on its sequel 22 Jump Street. But first, they return to the world of animation with their latest film The Lego Movie, which opens in theaters on February 7th.
In The Lego Movie, an ordinary mini-figure named Emmet (Chris Pratt) is mistaken as being the Special (the greatest Master Builder who can save the Lego universe). With the help of an old wizard named Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), and a tough young woman named Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett), Uni-Kitty (Allison Brie), Benny (Charlie Day), and a pirate named Metalbeard (Nick Offerman), Emmet will have to unlearn everything he saw in the instructions and discover the power of imagination to defeat the evil tyrant Lord Business (Will Ferrell), who is bent on destroying the Lego universe on Taco Tuesday and recreating it as he sees fit by gluing it together. In addition, the film also features the voices of Liam Neeson (The Grey) as Bad Cop/Good Cop, Channing Tatum (Haywire) as Superman, Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Green Lantern, Cobie Smulders (Delivery Man) as Wonder Woman, and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal as himself.
I recently had a chance to travel to Legoland California in Carlsbad, California for The Lego Movie press day and speak with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller about their new movie. The talented filmmakers discussed their new movie, Lego’s unique licensing rights, combining characters from several different franchises into one project, why there are no Marvel characters in the film, getting approval to use Star Wars characters, casting Will Arnett as Batman, convincing Morgan Freeman to make the movie, taking advantage of Liam Nesson’s vast resume of work, making Will Ferrell the bad guy, Superman and Green Lantern’s odd relationship, why a lot of Wonder Woman’s scenes were cut, Shaquille O’Neal, a possible sequel, and what to expect from 22 Jump Street.
This summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past contains many mutants both familiar and new.
Yet Gambit, a fan-favorite X-Man is conspicuously absent. Played briefly in X-Men Origins: Wolverine by Taylor Kitsch, the Cajun card-slinger had the misfortune of being a part of Fox's most unfortunate X-movie.
Gambit fans can hold out hope alongside Lauren Shuler-Donner, who is discussed the possibility of a rebooted Remy LaBeau in his own solo cinematic adventure.
"They're not 21 anymore" declares the first teaser poster for 22 Jump Street, describing Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as they squeeze off rounds from golden guns.
As if that weren't enough, Sony Pictures also unveiled the first official image from the sequel.
Like everything else we've seen from Lana and Andy Wachowski's next would-be blockbuster, the first official image of Channing Tatum in Jupiter Ascending is out there.
Way, way out there.
Synopsis: Jupiter Jones was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
"We're like a power-couple," says Channing Tatum's Jenko in the green band 22 Jump Street trailer.
"We're like Rihanna and Chris Brown" agrees his partner Schmidt, once again played by Jonah Hill. "You're a good dancer but sometimes you're meaner than I'd like you to be."
The intractable war between the Joes and Cobra has claimed many lives on both sides over these long years of senseless warfare.
A fallen Joe needn't necessarily stay fallen, however. Director Jon M. Chu hints that the next chronicle of the bloody war may find Channing Tatum returning to the role of Duke.
The teaser trailer for Jupiter Ascending is now online, providing our first look at the next staggeringly ambitious story from the Wachowski Siblings.
Imagine you're going about your perfectly ordinary life when you discover that not only is there a vast interstellar civilization out there, but that you are, in fact, a vital part of that civilization. You're space-royalty, and before you've even come to grips with that, myriad political players are all maneuvering around you against sprawling backdrop of unfathomable tech and cosmic grandeur.
