Latest Red Band CHIPS Trailer Gets Ruder

The Jump Street movies proved you can take a cult classic TV show and somehow spin gold from it, so it's only natural that others are trying to repeat the trick. But while it's clearly not as easy as that, Dax Shepard is attempting it with '70s/'80s cop show CHIPS, and the new, Red Band trailer shows he's leaning into the rude gags...

Shepard wrote, directed and stars here as Jon Baker, an injury-prone pro motorcyclist looking to fix his broken marriage (if not some of his broken bones) by joining up with the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles. He's partnered with Frank "Ponch" Poncherello (Michael Peña), who has his own reasons for signing on: Ponch is actually an undercover Federal agent looking to take down a suspected gang of crooked cops are pulling off heists.

The first trailer showed the style and tone that Shepard is going for, and the new one just confirms it: expect lots of genital-focused gags layered on a basic action plot. CHIPS is out on 24 March.
