The remake of the popular 1980’s TV show “21 Jump Street” opens in theatres this weekend and critics are already raving that this is one of the best comedies of the year.

Make sure to purchase your tickets for this genuinely side-splitting comedy HERE.

AMC managing editor John Campea had the opportunity to talk with two of the film’s stars, Dave Franco and Rob Riggle, at the South by Southwest film festival about humanizing the “bad guy,” working with leads Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill and the moment that they knew “21 Jump Street” was going to be hilarious.

Take a look at the video and synopsis for the film below:


The television series that shot Johnny Depp to stardom makes the leap to the big screen in this reboot starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) have the kind of faces that could let them pass for teenagers. Eager to prove themselves as effective policemen, the pair join the Jump Street program and go undercover to investigate a high-school drug ring. Now, the only thing more daunting than the prospect of taking on violent adolescent dope slingers is the possibility of experiencing the torture of their teenage years all over again.

Make sure to purchase your tickets for “21 Jump Street” HERE.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller direct a cast that includes Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, and Ice Cube.

“21 Jump Street” opens in AMC theatres this Friday, March 16th.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
