2012’s 21 Jump Street was a hilarious comedy treat, and from the looks of this first, swear-filled trailer, the sequel could live up to its proud, silly tradition. Take a look at the US version below and the similar international promo at the bottom of the page.
This time around, Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) are dispatched to a local college to investigate a drugs ring. But can their seemingly strong partnership survive the rigours of frat life and college bonding? There’s not much mention of that plotline in the trailer, which mostly goes for the gags, which is no bad thing.
Returning for this one is Nick Offerman’s snarky boss, who once again gives good meta, talking about the money pumped into keeping the Jump Street “program” going. And, of course, Ice Cube’s cranky Captain Dickson, relocated across the road to a different abandoned church. Wonder which deity we’ll meet this time? Also back are Rob Riggle’s Mr. Walters and Dave Franco’s Eric, back for a prison cameo. It’s good stuff.
With directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller once more calling the shots, 22 Jump Street is out on June 6 next year.
