After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship.

#BOXOFFICE: “LUCY” EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS WITH BIG OPENING
After enamouring Moviegoers with a slickly-cut Trailer earlier this year, it is no surprise Lucy finds itself atop the Box Office this weekend with $45 million from 3,173 theatres, exceeding Studio expectations for Universal Pictures. Audiences didn’t quite get this latest offering from French Director Luc Besson, giving it a C+ CinemaScore. Critics were on the fence also with a 56% score on the Tomatometer. The divide aside, one thing’s for sure – Scarlett Johansson‘s certainly got it.
Hercules debuts in second spot for Paramount Pictures, with $28.5 million from 3,595 theatres. Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson it its titular role, the Action-Fantasy drew positive response from Critics overall with a 65% CinemaScore and a B+ CinemaScore shouldn’t hurt word-of-mouth, yet also not help much either.
After two weeks on-top Dawn of the Planet of the Apes slips to third spot with $16.2 million for 20th Century Fox, pushing its earnings domestically past the $175 million-mark.
In its second week, The Purge: Anarchy slips to fourth spot with $10.3 million for Universal Pictures, a two-week tally of $52 million for the Sequel in the Horror Franchise.
And So It Goes debuts in eighth spot for Clarius/VVS Films with $4 million from 1,762 theatres. Critics absolutely hammered on the Rom-Com starring Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas, giving it a 15% on the Tomatometer, while Audiences were a lot more forgiving with a B+ CinemaScore.
Rounding out the Top Ten is 22 Jump Street with $2.5 million in its seventh week, just surpassing $185 million domestically for Sony Pictures.
#BOXOFFICE: MOVIEGOERS EXPERIENCE MONKEY MADNESS AS “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” OPENS BIG
It’s the dawn of a new beginning! Dawn of the Planet of the Apes unquestionably dominates the Box Office this weekend with a $70 million-opening from 3,967 theatres for 20th Century Fox. By comparison the last Film in Franchise opened in 2011 with $53 million, meaning that Moviegoers truly have Monkey Madness! Without any A-List Names in the Cast, the Blockbuster still managed to be and Critics rewarded it with a 91% on the Tomatometer and Audiences gave it an A CinemaScore.
Transformers: Age of Extinction in its third week, pulls-in $17 million for Paramount Pictures for second spot. It just surpasses the $200 million-mark earlier this week, tallying-in at $208 million domestically.
Tammy continues to perform well in third spot this weekend with $13 million in its second week in theatres for Warner Bros. It edges close to the $60 million-mark cumulatively.
22 Jump Street continues to perform exceptionally well, showing some staying power. In its fifth week it lands in fourth spot with $6.7 million for Sony Pictures. It has grossed over $171 million in North America thus far.
Earth to Echo places fifth this weekend for Relativity Media/eOne Films with $5.7 million in its second week out.
Begin Again, from the same people who brought us Once, opens in ninth spot with $5.3 million for The Weinstein Co. and eOne Films. Starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine in his Feature debut, Critics responded well to the Musical-Drama with an 80% Tomatometer score.
Jersey Boys, another Musical-Drama, rounds-out the Top Ten with $2.4 million for Warner Bros. from 1,968 theatres in its fourth week.
#BOXOFFICE: “TRANSFORMERS 4” EXTINGUISHES THE COMPETITION
It certainly was an extinction at the Box Office this weekend as Transfomers: Age of Extinction blew away the competition for top spot with a monstrous $103 million debut for Paramount Pictures. Although hefty, the fourth film in the Franchise still is bested by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which opened with $108 million in 2009. Critics tore apart the Action-Fantasy Flick (18% on the Tomatometer), directed by Michael Bay. Audiences however, adored it with an A- CinemaScore which will certainly help spread the word.
22 Jump Street in its third week out is a distant second for Sony Pictures, grossing $15.2 million this weekend. In its run domestically, it now has earned $140 million.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 sits in third again this weekend for 20th Century Fox pulling-in $13.1 million, as it surpasses the $120-million mark in North America.
Think Like a Man Too after debuting on-top last weekend, slips to number four this weekend with $10.5 million. Its two-week run has it almost at the $50 million-mark for Sony Pictures.
Jersey Boys certainly isn’t doing too bad in sixth with $7.6 million for Warner Bros., nearing the $30 million-mark in two weeks.
The Fault in our Stars finds itself in ninth spot this weekend with $5.2 million for 20th Century Fox, just surpassing the $110 million in earnings in only its fourth week.
Chef continues to perform above expectations, in the Top Ten a sixth week now with $1.5 million for Open Road Films/VVS Films. It has made $19 million showing only on a limited number of screens.
#BOXOFFICE: “THINK LIKE A MAN” WINS BATTLE OF THE SEQUELS AT THE BOX OFFICE
In yet another battle of the Sequels at the Box Office this weekend, Think Like a Man debuts atop the Box Office with a stellar $30 million from 2,225 theatres for Sony Pictures, just like its 2012 Predecessor did in its opening! Starring Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good and Regina Hall, the Comedy got little love from the Critics, tallying-in with 22% on the Tomatometer, but Audiences were more than forgiving, giving it an A- CinemaScore. The Film was made for $42 million and looks to be just one in successful Franchise.
22 Jump Street continues to perform impressively and just because it lands in second in its second week out, it by no means goes down shamed, only narrowly getting edged-out for top spot. It earns a fantastic $28 million from 3,306 theatres this weekend for Sony Pictures, as positive word-of-mouth continues to spread from Moviegoers for the well-reviewed Sequel.
In third spot this weekend is How to Train Your Dragon 2 with $25 million for 20th Century Fox. It inches in its second week close to the $100 million-mark already domestically.
Based on the TONY-winning Musical, Jersey Boys has a lukewarm opening for Warner Bros. with $13.5 million from 2,905 theatres. Reviews likewise for the Clint Eastwood-directed Film were mixed, earning a 55% on the Tomatometer and inversely, a great A- CinemaScore.
Maleficent finds itself in fifth spot with $12.5 million for Disney in its fourth week, now having grossed $185 million in North America.
The Fault in our Stars brings-in $9 million in its third week out for 20th Century Fox, just shy of the $100 million-mark domestically.
Chef rounds-out the Top Ten for Open Road/VVS Films with $16.8 million, now in its seventh week out.
#BOXOFFICE: “22 JUMP STREET” JUMPS AHEAD OF “DRAGON” IN BATTLE OF SEQUELS
NOTE: FINAL NUMBERS TO COME
It was a battle of the Sequels this weekend at the Box Office and prevailing just like its Predecessor was Sony Pictures’ 22 Jump Street which brought in $62 million. By comparison, the first Film in the Franchise opened back in 2012 with $36 million, this time around doubling its take. Critics have been kind, giving the Action-Comedy a great 83% on the Tomatometer, while Audiences also responded strongly with an A-CinemaScore.
A valiant second is How to Train Your Dragon 2 for 20th Century Fox, opening with $52 million at the Box Office! The Film which got a bit of a boost recently from Star America Ferrera‘s Red Carpet incident involving a Prankster at Cannes, got great reviews from Critics tallying 92% on the Tomatometer, and an equally strong A CinemaScore. Its 2010 Predecessor by comparison debuted with $41 million, easily besting the performance of that one.
Disney’s Maleficent continues to ride high in its third week with $20 million this weekend, normally enough for the number one spot some weekends, but good enough for third against the current slate of Blockbuster releases.
The Fault in our Stars opened atop the Box Office last weekend, but slips to fourth spot this weekend with $19 million for 20th Century Fox. It already has grossed $85 million across North America.
Edge of Tomorrow in its second week out accounts for the fifth spot at the Box Office with $16 million for Warner Bros., cumulatively earning $56 million domestically.
X-Men: Days of Future Past finds itself in sixth spot with $9 million for 20th Century Fox also in its its fourth week out, just surpassing the $200 million mark this week in these parts.
Chef rounds out the Top Ten with $2.1 million in its sixth week out in a limited number of theatres. To date, it has grossed $14 million.
CHANNING TATUM NAMED “SEXIEST MAN ALIVE” BY “PEOPLE”
No surprises here! As rumoured last week, Channing Tatum nabs the Title as People Magazine‘s 2012 Sexiest Man Alive. Tatum, who turned-up temperatures earlier this year with his starring Role in Male Stripper Flick Magic Mike, has proven his promise as the new Hollywood Megastar with great success in 2012 Smashes like The Vow, 21 Jump Street and Haywire.
Things definitely aren’t slowing-down anytime soon as Tatum is hard at work still. Out in 2013 are Psychological Thriller Side Effects in February, G.I. Joe: Retaliation in March, Save-the-President Blockbuster White House Down (filming in Montreal) in June and also True Events-inspired Foxcatcher to be released in the latter part of the year. At once, he is prepping for work on three separate Films, including a Sequel to 21 Jump Street. Pretty much everything Tatum‘s touched has turned to gold at the Box Office and we can expect his Reign to continue for a bit. And oh yes, he is pretty sexy too, isn’t he?
I’ve met Tatum on a couple occasions and can say hands down – including this Interview – along with 2011 Winner Bradley Cooper, is one of the nicest Guys in the Business. Cooper once again made the List this year, despite handing the Crown to Tatum. Embarrassed, he admits to People, “My Friends are going to kill me. They’re going to own me over this. I challenge you to say one thing nice about this.”.
Also on the List this year, representing individual American States are obvious choices: Ben Affleck, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Tom Brady, Jon Hamm, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Rudd, Dylan McDermott, Aaron Paul, Chris Hemsworth, Max Greenfield, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and many more.
