A new poster has been released for upcoming comedy 21 Jump Street , and judging by the explosions, it looks as though Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have been dropped into their very own action spectacular.
We’re not sure the way they’re holding those guns conforms to police protocol, but they look like they’re having fun, so who are we to complain?
Is it just us, or does anyone else keep getting the promotional material for this one muddled up with those Modern Warfare ads? In both cases, Jonah Hill plays the buffoon to a hulking, musclebound straight-man as gunfire and explodey mayhem reigns supreme. Maybe we just need to get used to the new, streamlined Jonah…
21 Jump Street sees Hill and Tatum play a pair of undercover cops, sent to infiltrate their local high school in order to bust a ring of drug pushers. As the new tagline so succinctly puts it, “They thought the streets were mean… then they went back to high school.”
The film opens in the UK on 16 March 2012. In the meantime, you can check out the new poster in full, below. Police badge on a chain… that always looks badass, doesn’t it?
