The Screen Watchers Guild Podcast #95: 22 Jump Street

episode95

We take a look at 22 Jump Street, what worked and what didn’t, and what was better/worse than the original. The original remake… Hollywood, folks. Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, etc… all return to create not only a parody of the original show, but also manage to deliver a sequel that also parodies sequels.

Jason Momoa is Aquaman

One more name has been added to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice (I’m going to get sick of typing that out very quickly). It seems that despite recent protests, Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman. His part won’t be huge, but it will lead up to a more involved role in the Justice League film. One complaint about Man of Steel was the lack of consequence for the unbelievable destruction that took place. Well, the ‘world machine’ pissed off Aquaman, and Supes is gonna hear about it now.

I’m a big fan of Momoa, since Stargate: Atlantis, and felt he god sidelined with a few bad projects, but hold high hopes for him in this one. Khaleesi will be first in line to check out Batman V. Sup- oh, you get it. Check out HitFix for the news.

‘The Interview’ Official Teaser Trailer

In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

‘Ant-man’ Found a Director

After a handful of directors turned down the chance to direct Ant-Man, Marvel found its director in Peyton Reed. As far as the film world is concerned, Peyton’s projects are uninspiring, including movies like Bring It On, The Break-Up, and Yes Man. To go from the man who created the Cornetto trilogy to someone with this resume is a bit of a disappointment to say the least. As far as television goes, Reed has directed some great stuff, including episodes of the Upright Citizens Brigade, The Weird Al Show, and a few episodes of New Girl. My hope is that the vibe of shows like these will have more bearing on the overall tone of the film. This coupled with a script that will have input from Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers), we might actually have some hope for this movie.

Quicksilver Looks Bad in Photos, No Matter What Movie It Is

These photos are apparently from March, but somehow they eluded me. HollywoodReporter.com has some on-set photos from The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Quicksilver apparently wears Under-Armour shirts and eyeliner.

Star Wars: Episode VII Adds Lupita Nyong’o & Gwendoline Christie

The latest in casting proves that in J.J. Abrams continues to believe that the Star Wars universe should have more than just white males fighting in the universe. Adding Nyong’o and Christie, of 12 Years a Slave and Game of Thrones respectively to an already impressive cast brings a almost a New Hope… to the Star Wars franchise? (I’m sorry for that, very, very sorry.) Official press release after the jump.
