22 Jump Street Debuts Trailer, See It Now [Video]By: Tobias Roth - December 17, 2013
A year after the release of 21 Jump Street, fans can get ready for another round with 22 Jump Street. The buddy cop comedy features Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, and while the two of them went undercover as high-school students in the first film, they will be taking on college in the sequel.
21 Jump Street was released in 2012, and is based on the original television series that aired from 1987-1991, which starred Johnny Depp before he got famous.
This time around, 22 Jump Street will see officers Jenko, played Channning Tatum, and Schmidt, played by Jonah Hill, find themselves going undercover at a local college as freshman. The two of them plan to bust up a drug ring inside a fraternity, which of course yields hilarious results.
While they are not attending classes as they did, they will certainly look out of place, and too old to be there. Channing Tatum, as a 33-year-old, and Jonah Hill, 29, are anything but the age of a college freshman. At one point in the trailer, a student even tells them “You look old as sh*t to be here.”
Nick Offerman, who is famous for playing Ron Swanson on NBC’s Parks And Recreation, also makes an appearance in the 22 Jump Street trailer to tell the two officers that no one cares about the jump street reboot, in his signature voice that will make all fans of his famous Ron Swanson character get even more excited for the film.
As a fair warning, the 22 Jump Street trailer is inappropriate at times, and not safe for work, containing adult language and themes. The pair of actors are back for more, and those who enjoyed the 2012 reboot, which gained critical and commercial success, should love this film as well. In addition, Ice Cube, Dave Franco, and several other actors have been brought into the sequel.
Some fans have already seen the trailer and took to twitter to show their excitement.
