Sony has released a five-minute red-band trailer for 21 Jump Street. I’m not going to watch it. I’m already sold on the movie since I’ve only heard raves about it. I’ve been told directly “I know your sense of humor and you are going to love this movie.” I was pretty much sold back when the first red-band trailer hit. Watching five minutes of the movie would just spoil more jokes for me, so I’m going to pass.
However, if you need more convincing, you can check out the trailer after the jump. The film stars Jonah Hill (who also co-wrote the script), Channing Tatum, Nick Offerman, Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, and Rob Riggle. 21 Jump Street opens March 16th. I’ll be seeing the film at SXSW, so look for my review later this week.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
