22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2 Open This Week
Two new movies open up in wide release this weekend, new is relative because they are sequels. We have two bumbling undercover cops in one, while in the other they are still training dragons.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are together again in "22 Jump Street" (R). This time they are undercover at a local college.
Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Dave Franco, and Rob Riggle are also back.
Next we have "How to Train Your Dragon 2" (PG)
Djimon Hounsou is the villain, a warlord determined to capture every single dragon, Jay Baruchel returns as Hiccup, the hero from the first movie, and Cate Blanchett plays his long-lost mother, who's spent her life rescuing dragons from the bad guy.
America Ferrera is Hiccup's girlfriend, Gerard Butler is his father, Craig Ferguson returns as the one-legged character Gobber, and Jonah Hill is a guy named Snotlout. Kit Harrington, a.k.a. Jon Snow on "Game of Thrones", is also in it.
"The Rover" (R) is in limited release this week but opens wide next week. It is not a sequel, "The Rover" stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson surviving in the aftermath of global economic collapse. After his last remaining possession, his car, is stolen by Pattinson's brother, Pearce forces him to help track it down.
I do believe "How to Train Your Dragon Two" will be number one with "22 Jump Street" coming in second.
