First ’22 Jump Street’ Trailer Leads Us To Believe The Best Is Still To Come


After months of only hearing bits and pieces from set, the first trailer for 22 Jump Street has debuted online.

Not much time has passed in the universe where 21 Jump Street took place. 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.

Some new ideas mixed with the oldest story of friends at odds ever told, the plot alone had us sold on spending another 90 minutes with Schmidt and Jenko, but had there been any doubts I am almost positive the new trailer would have washed them from our minds. You can view the clip, which is considered ‘red band’ for language and violence, at the end of this post.


Many trailers for comedies give away major gags and story points in order to fill seats, but so far 22 Jump Street looks to be taking a slightly more abstract approach to marketing. The plot is revealed in the trailer, yes, but the supporting cast (and villain) are kept under wraps. Instead, viewers see shots of Schmidt and Jenko that, while funny, were clearly shot for promotional purposes. A few co-stars from the original appear as well.

22 Jump Street is due in theaters June 2014. Are you sold on another adventure with Schmidt and Jenko? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
