“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 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.
