The red line trailer has just been released for new cop comedy 22 Jump Street, the sequel to 2012's commercially and critically successful 21 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will reprise their roles as Schmidt and Jenko, two undercover police officers who have another drug supplier to catch, only this time they've graduated from high school to college.
Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill Reprise Their Roles In This Comedy Cop Sequel.
"You two sons-a-bitches are going to college," we hear Ice Cube bark at Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the trailer before we see montages of the typical movie-ready university scenes: heavy drinking in the hallways, beer pong, sex, shared bathroom dilemmas and deadline library clashes - all with a sludgy hip-hop soundtrack. In no great leap of imagination, the former classmates have immersed themselves in varsity life.
In a seemingly unrealistic scenario, Tatum and Hill are planted amongst the students to find out who's supplying drugs but in order to curry favour with their new peers, they must throw themselves into every hedonistic aspect of uni life. The guys come unstuck when they become mixed in with different social scenes and must decide whether being a team works for them anymore.
