21 Jump Street Opens in Theaters March 16th

21 Jump Street (2012)

"They thought the streets were mean. Then they went back to high school." That's the premise of 21 Jump Street, a crime comedy that opens in theaters this Friday, March 16th, 2012. (A more recent tagline for the film: "The're too old for this shift."

Loosely based on the late 1980s television show of the same title, the film stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as young cops, who are recruited to be part of a resurrected undercover program. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Jenko and Schmidt risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring in a local high school. 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.

Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from a screenplay by Michael Bacall, 21 Jump Street is rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, drug material, teen drinking and some violence. Watch one of several trailers released for the film below.
