I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“21 Jump Street” Trailer: That Guy From “Step Up” and Jonah Hill Go Undercover!

leave a comment »

Some of us may remember 21 Jump Street, the 80s crime TV show that helped launch the careers of Johnny Depp and–well, he’s pretty much it. The series was about a group of po-lice officers who had the good luck (or bad luck) to be able to pass as teenagers and solve crimes. Now the show is getting the big-screen treatment as Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill become our two main characters.

They play two gung-ho albeit inept cops who discover that their job isn’t as exciting as they had hoped. When they finally make their first bust but fail to comprehend the finer points of police procedure, Nick Offerman (of Parks and Recreation fame) tasks them to head out to 21 Jump Street, in which they’ll finally get to go undercover.

Their job: to pose as high school students and take down the dealer of a drug ring. Oh, and did I mention that Ice Cube is their captain at 21 Jump? Ice Cube. This just might redeem him for Are We There Yet? and Are We Done Yet?. Nobody mention those movies anymore.

21 Jump Street looks okay. The supporting cast (including the aforementioned Offerman, Cube, and also The Daily Show’s Rob Riggle) really seem to outshine Tatum and Hill in this trailer, so I’m hoping they have some good scenes on their own.

The movie hits theaters in March.
