Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill team up for “22 Jump Street.” Watch the full movie on the big screen today!
After successfully working through an undercover drug bust operation in a local high school, the two cops will again be going undercover, but it will be in college this time around.
In the previous film, Schmidt (played by Hill) and Jenko (played by Tatum) were able to fully realize their partnership as they went through hilarious and raunchy challenges together, cracking the case of drug dealing taking place at the high school.
The comedic premise of the upcoming film will now focus on the problems that come with “marriage,” as producer Neal H. Mortiz calls it. They begin to doubt and question their partnership, especially after entering college, meeting new people, and going through experiences different from those of their last mission.
Jenko immediately becomes friends with jocks named Zook and Rooster, who are the investigation’s prime suspects. On the other hand, Schmidt meets an art student named Maya, with whom he eventually sleeps with. However, she tells him not to take it seriously, and he ends up feeling left out while Jenko enjoys his time with the jocks and is even encouraged to join the football team.
Ultimately, the pair begins to question their partnership and whether they should be police officers until they realize that their differences help them become more effective partners. The film ends with the two reconciling their differences in front of a cheering crowd.
The action comedy film “22 Jump Street” is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 13. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller directed the film, which was produced and starred in by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Joining them in the upcoming film are Peter Stormare, who will play the role of the villain Ghost, as well as Ice Cube as Capt. Dickson.
