21 Jump Street took the box office by storm this weekend, raking in $35 million.
I chatted with Jonah Hill at SXSW in Austin, Texas, where the film premiered. Hill described this five-year passion project, which he also co-wrote, as "Bad Boys meets a John Hughes movie."
The cast members also shared their thoughts on connecting with fans in this age of digital technology. "There's too much access to knowing things about a film before you see it," Hill shared. "There's not a lot of surprise anymore, which sucks."
Dave Franco talked about how the digital world has changed movies, saying he makes videos with his friends and posts them on Funny or Die: "If you have a video on that site that happens to be successful, more people could potentially see it than if you did an independent movie -- which is crazy."
