Here’s a trailer for 22 Jump Street, and I must admit, I’m still pretty perplexed as to how this happened. I mean, movie studios have been trying to make modern movie versions of old TV shows for years now, with very little success. How did 21 Jump Street work out when something like the Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson version of Starsky & Hutch didn’t? It doesn’t make any sense! But maybe some of the success of Jump Street can be attributed to the self-aware humour of the film and its sequel. I love that this trailer acknowledges right up front that they just “got lucky.”
22 Jump Street comes out June 13, 2014.
