Clip Mania: 22 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and More
As we approach the weekend, that means it is time for yet another Clip Mania. In this week’s edition, I’ll feature seven different movies with at least one new clip. Of these seven, two star Jonah Hill (22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2). Also, two of these movies release this weekend (Trust Me and Anna). The other three movies included are Begin Again (a movie I am looking forward to), Third Person, and Grace of Monaco.
Check them all out below!
The first clip I wanted to champion belongs to 22 Jump Street. The clip itself is just a longer look at a scene we’ve seen partially in trailers. The film will return actors Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill (both present in the clip) when it releases June 13th. More importantly, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller return as directors.
Also releasing on June 13th (and also featuring Jonah Hill) is How to Train Your Dragon 2. I’ve found two more clips (both above) for the animated sequel. Dean DeBlois will return as director with voice stars Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, and more reprising their roles. Check the clips out if you get the chance!
John Carney (director of the fabulous film Once) is at it again with another romantic-comedy musical. This time around he’ll have some more familiar names that could catapult him into a more well-known entity. Carney’s film, titled Begin Again, stars Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. If you haven’t seen or heard much about the film, I’d check out the short clip. This movie comes out June 27th.
A clip for Third Person, featuring stars Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), hit the Internet recently, too. Third Person seems interesting because it is about three interconnected love stories (in three separate locations). The cast also includes names like Mila Kunis, James Franco, Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone), and Maria Bello (A History of Violence). Check out the clip before the romantic drama makes it to theaters June 20th.
The most clips this week belong to the movie Grace of Monaco. The biographical film set a half-century ago stars Nicole Kidman as Grace with Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) playing her husband. If you want to see more of the movie (especially considering the movie doesn’t have a U.S. playdate yet), check out all four clips.
Moving to this weekend’s releases, I want to first mention the latest Trust Me clip. Being the longest of the week, this one is for Clark Gregg’s (Choke) latest directorial project (he seems to be everywhere!). Gregg is joined onscreen by Sam Rockwell (Seven Psychopaths) and William H. Macy (Fargo). Check this movie out in limited theaters starting today.
And to finish things off, I have a clip for this weekend’s release of Anna. Most of you probably don’t know a whole lot about this movie; however, the premise seems pretty cool. It’s apparently about a man that can enter a person’s mind. In this particular instance, he’ll do it to find out if a young girl is the victim of a trauma or not. Anna is directed by Jorge Dorado and stars Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes) and Taissa Farmiga (The Bling Ring). Check it out this weekend!
