We then got a brand new trailer for the film yesterday, and to follow it up, we’ve now got the film’s brilliant first poster to share with you, courtesy of their own Facebook page.
Co-written by Hill and Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), the film has been helmed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, best known for their previous work co-directing Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, and if these trailers are anything to go by, they’re going to make a brilliant live-action feature debut together.
“In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.”
Along with Hill and Tatum, the film stars Ice Cube, who’s looking awesome in the trailers, his upcoming Rampart co-star Brie Larson, and Dave Franco, with a cameo to come from the 1980s original TV series’ star, Mr. Johnny Depp. Can’t ask for much more than that. 21 Jump Street will be hitting the big screen here in the UK on 16th March next year, which is definitely a date I’m getting excited about. Without further ado, here’s the great first poster. I’m loving the look of Tatum and Hill in this from all we’ve seen. As usual, click to enlarge.
