When 21 Jump Street came out, it was actually a breath of fresh air in a world of reboots, remakes and sequels. The meta remake of the hit television series wasn’t shy about ripping reboots, remakes or just about anything about movies these days that can’t be original and have to rip off something from the past.
The movie was truly refreshing and we’re looking forward to seeing how the sequel will pan out. Given how meta the first film was about remakes, we can probably expect the same out of 22 Jump Street. The first trailer for the movie was released by Sony today and the red band trailer shows that we’re in store for more of the same fun we had the first time around.
Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and even Ice Cube are back for more action. The trailer promises that all characters from the original will be back for at least a cameo but it’s looking like the only ones returning in a starring role are Tatum and Hill who are frankly the only ones we could have hoped for.
22 Jump Street actually has a lot of expectations to live up to, and we will see if that can be met when the movie hits theaters this upcoming summer.
