"It's the same case -- do the same thing!" So barks Ice Cube to Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the new expletive-filled red-band trailer for their upcoming buddy-cop comedy "22 Jump Street," which finds the latter two once again starring as goofball narcs Jenko and Schmidt. The line functions as marching orders for the undercover duo, who busted a high-school drug ring in the 2012 surprise hit "21 Jump Street" and this time around are sent to do the same at a college. (Watch the new red-band "22 Jump Street" trailer here ; parental guidance suggested.)

"This is the proudest year of my career so far, to have ‘Get Him to the Greek' and ‘Cyrus' come out a month apart from each other," says 26-year-old Jonah Hill in a swanky hotel restaurant, over a stiff glass of ice-cold water. "I feel very lucky." In "Greek" (opening June 4), written and directed by "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" helmer Nicholas Stoller, Hill is dispatched by his music-mogul boss (Sean Combs) to escort a notoriously libertine rock star (Russell Brand, reprising his "Marshall" role of Aldous Snow)

Even though he's been nominated twice now for Academy Awards, it's still a little hard to stop thinking of Jonah Hill as that roly-poly comedic acolyte of Judd Apatow (specifically, as this guy. ) Perhaps it's time to admit he's a real actor in addition to a comic presence. Both sides of Hill were on display Saturday night when he hosted “SNL” for the third time. Some sketches were as broad and loud and demeaning as could possibly be. In one scene, he played a man forced to admit he clogged a toilet on a game show.

Social media can foster odd friends and even odder enemies. Deadmau5 and Madonna recently got into it on Twitter. But the oddest Twitter fight pair in recent memory may be CNN anchor Don Lemon and Jonah Hill, star of "21 Jump Street. " The fight began Thursday night when Lemon took to his Twitter feed and announced , "Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn't know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind. " According to several reports, Hill responded with a tweet that he has since deleted: "@DonLemonCNN I said hi what do you want me to do move in with you?

Jonah Hill was something of a surprise hit in "Moneyball" as Peter Brand, the statistician of underdogs and the underdog of statisticians. (He's made almost as much news for his new leaner profile.) The shaggy boy from "Superbad," "Get Him to the Greek" and "Cyrus" will be 28 next week, but that hasn't stopped him from acting like a kid in a candy store this award season. You've been making a lot of news for both moving into drama and your weight loss. Do you think one thing feeds into the other and I'll get awards for that?

Proving that maybe the tastes of MTV are not so different from those of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, three Oscar-nominated films -- "12 Years a Slave," "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" -- are among the movie of the year nominees for the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. The male and female performance categories also echo the academy's choices as Sandra Bullock ("Gravity"), Amy Adams ("American Hustle"), Bradley Cooper ("American Hustle"), Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Wolf of Wall Stre et ")

This year's nine Academy Award nominees for best picture are exceptional films that envelope audiences with great acting, unusual story lines and distinctive cinematography. But who among us can say they have been so captivated by a great movie that no errant thought has strayed into their mind? I have seen all nine (which may be more than most members of the academy can claim) and do not have a favorite. Each in this group of movies has such an individual look and voice that weighing one against another is like comparing the proverbial apples and oranges.

Found-footage movies have had a mixed record lately, with the horror genre particularly taking its lumps. Can a movie with that conceit and a time-travel premise break the streak? We were all set to find out in a few weeks, on Feb. 28, exactly, with the release of "Welcome to Yesterday. " But the film -- a movie with just that blend that's produced by Michael Bay's production company -- has been taken off that date for a new, as-yet undetermined one.  BEST MOVIES OF 2013: Turan  |  Sharkey  |  Olsen It's rare for a studio to pull a movie just three weeks before its release.

While most moviegoers cried alongside Woody and Buzz Lightyear this weekend, indie film fans in Los Angeles and New York went for the awkward charm of "Cyrus." The offbeat romantic comedy starring John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill opened to a sensational $180,289 at four theaters in the country's two biggest cities. That's a virtual tie for the best limited-release opening of the year, alongside Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer." The first studio-financed picture from writers-directors Jay and Mark Duplass benefited from positive reviews and an aggressive marketing campaign and now appears well positioned as distributor Fox Searchlight expands it nationwide over the next four weeks.

There's a lot of bad behavior going down in the new raunch comedy "Get Him to the Greek," and I'm not even talking about Russell Brand's off-the-wagon rock renegade who requires 24-hour minding from Jonah Hill's nebbishy record-label flunky either. The seriously out-of-control hard R dude is writer-director Nicholas Stoller, who apparently has major trust issues with his odd-couple stars, women and the audience. Did I forget anybody? It's too bad too, because there are both very funny and surprisingly compelling narrative themes running through the film that would have worked even better if — and get ready, there are a lot of ifs — (a)
