Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill Take on College in New ’22 Jump Street’ Trailer [Video]

The best cops are back again and now they are going to college.

Sony Has finally unveiled to public its red band trailer for “22 Jump Street” starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

The upcoming movie, based on the 1980s cop series which starred Johnny Depp, is the sequel of the last year’s hit comedy that showed the adventures of two cops in school.

The aptly named “22 Jump Street” continues the story, showing Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) heading off to college to work undercover in an effort stop the spread of some nefarious narcotics.

“Ladies, nobody gave a sh-t about the Jump Street reboot, but you got lucky. So now this department has invested a lot of money to make sure Jump Street keeps going,” Nick Offerman as Deputy Chief Hardy explains to Tatum and Hill why there’s a sequel to “21 Jump Street.”

Several characters from the previous part are also featured in the trailer, including “Parks and Recreation” star Nick Offerman who performs Deputy Chief Hardy.

“Nobody gave a [expletive] about the Jump Street reboot, but you got lucky,” remarks Offerman, adding, “so now this department has invested a lot of money to make sure Jump Street keeps going.”

As Variety reports, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are returning as directors with a script written by Michael Bacall, Rodney Rothman and Oren Uziel.

The Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation took in $13.5 million, down 55 percent from its anemic opening weekend and lifting its domestic total to a measly $53.2 million. ‘John Carter’ reportedly cost $250 million to make.

“I think we were very successful in getting an opening like this with tremendous word-of-mouth,” said Bruer, who confirmed the studio planned a sequel.

Mr Bruer claims the studio has managed to increase awareness of the film and help younger audiences identify with the older property. “The way the film was executed made it relevant for today’s audiences,” he said.

He kept on talking: “I just think you had to make it relevant, and action comedy was the way to go. And they did make it very relevant to a young audience. The guys, Jonah and Channing, were just killer together. They had incredible chemistry and certainly were the attraction for younger crowds.”

Jonah Hill previously spoke with the media about the sequel, saying:  “All of us up here would love to do a sequel, but it’s no longer in our hands.”

He kept on talking: “So if you tell your friends that the movie was great and they go watch it and it makes a bunch of money, then we will all be making a sequel very soon. If not, you will never see us ever again. It’s in your hands, no longer ours.”

Meanwhile, the Sexiest Man Alive 2012 was spotted filming the sequel in Puerto Rico on Saturday, showing off an usually fuller figure.

He said in one of his interviews last year: “I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can’t move well and I like to move,’ he says. ‘When I’m not training, I get really round and soft.”
