At the Movies – June 2014 – Part 3: Most Anticipated Films

Must-See of the Month:

22 Jump Street – Action Comedy – Jun 13
Plot Summary: Schmidt and Jenko are back. This time going uncover at a local college to expose a drug ring (so 22 Jump Street is essentially the same movie at 21 Jump Street, just slightly different). Key Filmmakers Involved: Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, writer Michael Bacall, and composer Mark Mothersbaugh. Actors Involved: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Dave Franco, Peter Stormare, Nick Offerman, Ice Cube, Amber Stevens, Rob Riggle, and Richard Grieco. Potential to be Good: High. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are three for three so far making fun comedies, especially excelling at action comedies with 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie. 22 Jump Street should be equally as good as its predecessor; all the key ingredients are returning (although, it is too bad Brie Larson and Ellie Kemper are not back in the mix again as they were great in the first one). Typically, I would not pick a film like 22 Jump Street to be the “must-see of the month” but June is pretty weak. It has the highest potential to be the most entertaining film of the month (though, The Rover very well could be the best). Fans of action comedies and the first film will likely enjoy this one too. Trailer: Here.
