22 Jump Street Preview

Officers Schmidt and Jenko return to the big screen for the super-hyped sequel to the 2012 action comedy blockbuster, 21 Jump Street.

 

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill resume their roles as the riotous undercover cop duo, only this time “they’re not 21 any more”. Or so the tagline says! With a victorious high school drug bust in the bag, 22 Jump Street sees the pair stationed as clandestine college students with a mission to crack a thriving fraternity crime ring.

 

Is there a future in the partnership?

However things aren’t quite as peachy as they were back in high school. When Jenko finds camaraderie with the college football team and Schmidt bonds with the lofty bohemian art major students, the two comrades begin to question the future of their partnership. Can they make the transition from schoolboy rookies to mature college colleagues? Will they be able to overcome their differences in order to crack the case? Will they manage to impress the ever disapproving Deputy Chief Hardy? The countdown is on for June 6th when Jump Street fans can hit Cineworld cinemas across the nation to find out.

 

Reunion

Michael Bacall’s scriptwriting genius was once again enlisted for the sequel, the American screenwriter teaming up with Oren Uziel to draft the multitude of hilarious one liners and side splitting quips. As well as the dual Jump Street films, Bacall boasts a resume featuring cult comedy scripts such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Project X.

 

Fans can thank Bacall and Hill for co-creating the follow up storyline to their hugely successful predecessor. While both films are firmly in the action packed but comical genre, Bacall maintains that the underlying theme was developed from a desire to explore scenarios in which guys are forced to confront unresolved issues from the past. 

 

The reuniting of the award winning 21 Jump Street team continues with directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The dynamic young duo are renowned for their collaboration on other hit feature films such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Lego Movie.

 

 

Old favourites

As well as Tatum, Hill and Offerman, movie goers can also expect return appearances from old favourites including Ice Cube as the hostile Capt. Dickson, and Dave Franco as hypocritical environmentalist drug dealer, Eric Molsen. The gorgeous Amber Stevens plays the love interest of a very lucky Hill, while Brad Pitt and Richard Greico also lend the film their star-power with a series of cameo appearances.

 

While Jump Street is renowned as a modern day blockbuster which grossed over US$200 million worldwide, the address made its original debut in the 1987 TV series by Patrick Hasburgh and Stephen J. Cannell. The latest silver screen instalment from Columbia Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer will undoubtedly smash box office records and ensure the Jump Street legacy is kept well and truly alive. 

 

Whether you’re on a hot date, a family cinema trip, or a night out with friends, the hilarious script, star studded cast and action packed scenes will keep everyone entertained!
