Now playing in theaters is 22 Jump Street, the fantastic sequel from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. As most of you already know, the film finds Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reprising their undercover cop roles from the first movie, and they’re now tasked with infiltrating a drug operation on a college campus. Loaded with great jokes and fantastic performances from Tatum, Hill, and the rest of the cast (Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Peter Stormare, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts), 22 Jump Street should absolutely be seen in a theater this weekend. You’ll love it. For more on the film, watch these clips and behind-the-scenes footage, read Matt’s review, or click here for all our previous coverage.
At the New York City press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. They talked about if they were nervous to make the sequel, the first table read and the studio’s reaction, deleted scenes, if they’ll want to make another sequel, Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller, if Tatum will be playing Gambit in an X-Men movie, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
