Phil Lord and Chris Miller may have passed up on 'Ghostbusters 3,' but that's completely fine with us if they keep making movies that look as funny as '22 Jump Street'. Today, the final red-band trailer has arrived and, in the rare case of the comedy sequel, it looks just as funny as the first.
22 Jump Street
Channing Tatum can do many things -- dance like no one's watching ('Magic Mike'), protect the President ('White House Down') and transform into a lupine warrior ('Jupiter Ascending'), to name a few -- but it looks like one thing he can't do is pull off a Latin America accent. Or at least Jenko can't. The first '22 Jump Street' clip dropped online, along with a batch of new photos and a poster, giving us a look at one of the more funny moments glimpsed from the trailers.
Earlier this week, Ivan Reitman announced he would not be returning to direct 'Ghostbusters 3' for Sony Pictures and, subsequently, the studio was moving quickly to find a replacement. Well, that certainly didn't take long.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are ready to reunite ... Well, technically they already did in 'The LEGO Movie' as LEGO Superman and LEGO Green Lantern, but we mean reprising their roles as undercover cops for '22 Jump Street.' With Schmidt and Jenko now heading to infiltrate a local college, there will surely be many crazy nights to be had -- so many, in fact, that Sony had to release an alternate cut of the '22 Jump Street' trailer just to give audiences a taste of how many antics will be taking place.
There is no comedy we're looking forward to more in 2014 than the reunion of Schmidt and Jenko, and there's nothing the newly released '22 Jump Street' poster can do to change our minds. The one-sheet could be completely blank and we'd still be excited because '21 Jump Street' remains one of the funniest movies of the past few years, and with everyone back for the sequel our expectations are hight.
Part of what made '22 Jump Street' so magnificently glorious was both the fact that it didn't take itself too seriously (calling itself out on being a money-grabbing reboot) and allowing stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill ad lib some genuinely hysterical moments. Cut to the new '22 Jump Street' trailer, which is more safe for work than the original red-band footage but features more of that comedy.
"What's up dawg." "We're back!" And so the '22 Jump Street' trailer begins as Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return for the sequel to their fantastic comedy '21 Jump Street.' As teased at the end of the original movie, the sequel has them going off to college. Let's take a look at the '22 Jump Street' trailer and see if we want to enroll with them.
