Alert the Twittersphere! The first red-band trailer for Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill’s reboot of 21 Jump Street has arrived, and it looks like this one actually has the potential to be pretty hilarious. Here’s the set-up: Hill and Tatum are former classmates – one a nerd, one a dumb-but-sexy jock (I will leave it to you to guess who’s who). The men have reunited to kick some ass on the city police force, but their Justin Bieber looks get them sent straight to “a cancelled undercover police program from the ’80s” located at – you guessed it – 21 Jump Street. Now they’ll have to go undercover to take on a teenage drug ring, Rob Riggle, and, probably worst of all, high school (again).
Reboots of old beloved TV shows have lately been disastrous, but the trailer promises plenty of potty-mouthed fun and good chemistry between Hill and Tatum. They also have a talented supporting cast, with
Ron Swanson Nick Offerman, Ice Cube, and Dave Franco all making appearances. 21 won’t jump into theaters until March, but you can check out the NSFW-ish trailer below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments. And remember – you do have the right to be an attorney, but only if you want to.
