10 Sequels We're Actually Looking Forward to in 2014"
Are you ready for more 'Hunger Games,' ' X-Men,' and 'Muppets'?
'22 Jump Street'
Release Date: June 13
Why it's a sequel we want: Miller and Lord are crafty filmmakers, and they seem to love to make things that work on several different levels. '21 Jump Street' did a nice job sending up some of the cliches of buddy cop films and also the cliches of high school movies. Now, expect lots of jokes that deconstruct the idea of sequels, as well as a riff on the cliches of college movies. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, unlikely a pairing as that seems at first, are a duo we're happy to watch work together as long as they still feel like there's fresh material to subvert.
