All due respect to Marvel, but the Guardians of the Galaxy arenít the only kids in town showing off new footage from an upcoming movie. Sony dropped the latest green-band trailer for this summerís 22 Jump Street online (and above), and it comes with an alternate ending to the clip we watched earlier. Give it a spin.

As was promised at the end of the initial film, the two sons of bitches played by Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are going to college, posing as 20-something frat jerks in order to bring down a criminal mastermind. Thereís a very similar story in play here, as Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) once again are tracking an illegal drug thatís being passed through the student body. Basically, the premise just serves as a springboard to a bevy of college jokes we might not have heard since Animal House or Back to School.

The best news we can share about 22 Jump Street is that it will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the masterminds behind the initial, successful reboot who also are riding an incredible high thanks to their take on The LEGO Movie, which currently is burning up local multiplexes. They proved, both in LEGO and in 21 Jump Street, that they understand how to find what is inherently creative and funny about a given property, and inject worthy laughs without pandering. Somehow, they managed to raise the bar of expectation on a sequel of an adaptation of a dusty television property. Thatís something I NEVER thought Iíd write.

Did you make it to the end of the new Jump Street clip? Find out how it is different from the green-band reel that ran earlier:

And then dial into for some dirty laughs with the red-band restricted trailer Sony shared for Jump Street earlier this year.

The Jump Street sequel looks like it will live up to its predecessor, with Tatum and Hill expanding on the humor they established in the first trip. It opens everywhere on June 13.
