Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum Get Wild in '22 Jump Street' Trailer

This time, they're fighting a drug problem in higher education

By |

"You two sons-a-bitches are going to college," Ice Cube barks at Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the red-band trailer for the sequel to 21 Jump Street. As it happens, the first film's "Jump Street" program – in which Tatum and Hill's cop characters went back to high school to catch a drug dealer – is renewed in the sequel, with a few twists. For one, instead of resuming work in their familiar Korean church, the cops move their HQ across the street to a new address that also serves as this movie's title: 22 Jump Street.

This time, the youthful undercover cops navigate the world of higher education to catch a drug supplier. The trailer shows the duo enjoying college hijinks like diving through a wall of beer cans, sharing a coed bathroom with a woman, shot-gunning beers and, uh, driving a giant football helmet. One quick scene shows Hill dressed in a sort of "emo" look that appears to draw from the fashion sense of the Cure's Robert Smith, Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx and Nirvana's Kurt Cobain (though he is wearing a Cure T-shirt).

The Travers Take: Channing Tatum is Surprisingly Funny in '21 Jump Street'

The clip even finds the pair reuniting with Mr. Walters, the surly, giant P.E. teacher in the first movie. "Listen, Mr. Walters, I should apologize–" starts Hill. "For shooting my penis off?" Mr. White says. "Don't sweat it. They gave me a vagina." 

22 Jump Street comes out next summer.
