Trailer: The Box Next Door

Jennifer Lopez has just given fans a glipse at her new film, Univeral Pictures' psycological thriller The Boy Next Door.

The film, the first for Lopez since 2013's Jason Statham led Parker, tells of a high school teacher who has an affair with a younger guy.  When the guy becomes obsessed with J. Lo, things get a bit complicated...or should I say downright ridiculous.  Ex-husbands become threatened and guns are waved around children, all of which leads up to one intense standoff.

Directed by Rob Cohen and co-starring Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth, The Boy Next Door is Lopez's first of three movies set for next year.  With a January 25th release date it likely won't be the amazing comeback story that we are all semi-hoping for, but it should be a good distraction from her revived music career that we have all been forced to toleerate.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
