22 Jump Street Red Band Trailer Reunites Channing Tatum And Jonah Hill

This trailer is mildly NSFW.

Christmas has come early with a red band trailer for 22 Jump Street! Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reprise their roles as Jenko and Schmidt for this sequel to the reboot 1980s series 21 Jump Street, and the new promo has none other than Nick Offerman explaining its unlikely title as Deputry Chief Hardy. "Ladies, nobody gave a shit 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. The only problem is the Koreans bought the church back, so we're moving you across the road to 22 Jump Street." But this isn't the only move the boys are making. They are going to college.

Here's the official synopsis for 22 Jump Street:

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they 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. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

There's some promising bits set up in this trailer, like Schmidt's saucy exchange with an irritated, silence-demanding student, and the return of Rob Riggle's Mr. Walters and Dave Franco's Eric Molson. ("Hey guess what, I'm Eric's bitch!") But as far as red band trailers go, this one's pretty tame. Sure, there's some cursing and sexually explicit talk, but nothing super shocking. I don't know, maybe Nymphomaniac's red band has just desensitized us.

All the same, we're eager to see more from this kooky cop caper, especially as its predecessor made its mark on several of our 2012 top tens, including our breakthrough list, best action sequences, and best lines of dialogue.

But while we wait for June 13, 2014, to bring us the opening of 22 Jump Street, let's revisit the epic Jenko split, a personification of the delicate balancing act of being a college freshman and an undercover narcotics officer. Who can say where the road goes, where the day flows? Only time.
