The highly anticipated “21 Jump Street” remake starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill is almost ready for release, and the red-band trailer dropped this week. Let’s just say it’s much more Jonah Hill than Johnny Depp.
In three minutes and sixteen seconds, the trailer contained at least sixteen instances of cursing… or at least, words we are not allowed to print on this site. (Yeah, we counted. We were bored.)
Though the Ice Cube does acknowledge in the trailer that the undercover unit is a revival of one shut down in the ’80s, there’s very little in the movie that reminds us of the television show it’s based on. It feels more like a “Superbad” sequel. We’re curious to see what Depp’s role in the film is — yes, he shot scenes — because we’re hearing that despite the shout out to the previous generation, he won’t be playing his original character, Tom Hanson.
Watch the trailer below (but beware, it’s got lots of harsh language) and drop us a line in the comments to let us know what you think.
