First Poster and New Trailer for 21 Jump Street Starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum
12.20.11 by Ryan
Jonah Hill's latest movie, the '80s comedy homage The Sitter, hasn't fared so well at the box office, just barely losing out on its opening weekend to the critically-trashed ensemble rom-com New Year's Eve. Columbia Pictures' remake of 21 Jump Street, Hill's next foray into the pop culture past, may prove more successful.
Like the the Fox TV show that starred Johnny Depp in the late '80s and early '90s, 21 Jump Street follows a group of youthful-looking cops led by Hill and the not-so-young-looking Channing Tatum, who go back to high school to uncover a drug dealer (Dave Franco) and the drug ring he works for. Digital Spy has revealed a new trailer for the movie, which is practically identical to the green band trailer that was revealed last month, but does offer some new footage. The first poster for the movie has been also been revealed, and shows Hill and Tatum in their prom gear, in what is likely the movie's finale — if it correctly follows '80s movie formula.
21 Jump Street was directed by Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and written by Scott Pilgrim vs. the World screenwriter Michael Bacall, based on a story conceived by Hill. The cast includes Ice Cube (Friday), Ellie Kemper (Bridesmaids), Brie Larson (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), and Rob Riggle (The Other Guys).
