Tim Story admits that he wishes he could have directed his 'Fantastic Four' movies in today's superhero movie climate. Story is quick to point at more complicated villains like Ultron and Thanos and Apocalypse; their cinematic versions all being (we assume) carefully crafted for today's audience. This is opposed to his version of Galactus in 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,' in which one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe is reduced to being a large space cloud -- something Story explains was dipping a toe into the waters of that character, instead of going all in like he'd be able to do today. Story also discusses his thoughts on the upcoming Josh Trank reboot of the Fantastic Four, a movie that, if anything, makes Story feel "old."

Frank Grillo isn't 50 yet -- he just turned 49 earlier this month -- but the Internet, led by IMDb and Wikipedia, has aged him by two years ... and Grillo seems resigned to this fact. It's almost fitting: Grillo, who has been acting for over 20 years, but is just now starting to become a household name thanks to 'Captain America 2' and 'The Purge: Anarchy'.

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill Talk '23 Jump Street,' College Life and Their X-Rated Bet

Jonah Hill probably shouldn't have made that bet. Back when '21 Jump Street' was about to hit theaters, a drunk Hill made a ridiculous bet with an equally drunk Channing Tatum based on the possibility that their movie open over $35 million. The bet? As Hill put it, "I will kiss your tip!" (The tip of what, we'll leave to your very capable imagination.) '21 Jump Street' opened to $36.3 million.

Everyone loves Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The writing-directing team behind 'The LEGO Movie' and this Friday's '22 Jump Street' have directed movies both critically beloved and commercially successful (the former is the highest-rated movie of the year on Rotten Tomatoes and the second-biggest movie of the year in terms of the box office). It's easy to understand why: like their films, these guys are smart, funny and lacking in any kind of cynicism.

When it was announced that Ivan Reitman was stepping down as the 'Ghostbusters 3' director, many fans (including us) immediately thought of Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('The LEGO Movie') as the ideal replacements. Sure enough, an offer went out to the...
