I think it’s safe to say the 21 JUMP STREET movie surprised a lot of people. It’s one of those concepts, taking an old TV show and making it modern and hip for today’s audiences, not to mention completely changing the tone of the subject matter from dramatic to comedic… and yet somehow it worked. It’s also probably safe to say it made Channing Tatum a pretty likable guy, even in the minds of many who up until then didn’t care for him. Well Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are doing the only natural thing that can be done at this point – starring in a sequel, titled ever-so-appropriately 22 JUMP STREET. And everyone appears to be back, Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Dave Franco, and my man Rob Riggle (one of the few actors I’d ever want to play me in a movie, and his character name here just happens to be “Mr. Walters”). Phil Lord and Chris Miller are back as co-directors, and this installment finds our heroes going undercover in college. I could continue typing, but just watch the trailer below and you’ll get an idea of what to expect. Tell us your thoughts on the follow up in the comments.
Officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) go deep undercover at a local college, but when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership.
