While they may still be young, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum don't really look like they can pass for high school students anymore. It was fine five years ago, when they were starring in movies like Superbad and She's The Man, but they are now 28 and 31, respectively. As a result, there were a few raised eyebrows when it was reported that the two actors would be starring in 21 Jump Street, a movie based on the 80s television series about young-looking cops who would infiltrate high schools to stop teenage crime. Fortunately, it looks like the folks behind the film are fully aware of how old Hill and Tatum look, as evidenced by the first red band trailer released today on Facebook.

Check out the first preview of the film below.

While there were a few moments that I laughed out loud watching this trailer (It's Ron Swanson!) , overall it left me feeling kind of "meh". The movie has a lot of great things going for it - from a Jonah Hill-written script to Phil Lord and Chris Miller behind the camera to the expected cameo by Johnny Depp - and I'm still looking forward to seeing what they can do with the concept, but hopefully the next trailer packs a little more punch.

21 Jump Street also stars Ice Cube, Ellie Kemper, Dave Franko, Brie Larson, Jake M. Johnson, Johnny Simmons and Rob Riggle. The film is set to hit theaters on March 16th.
