Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are going to college in the upcoming movie "22 Jump Street," and by the looks of the trailer released Wednesday, the duo has many misadventures. 

The movie, slated for a June 13 release, is the sequel to the 2012 movie "21 Jump Street," which is a remake of Johnny Depp's 1980s television series. "22 Jump Street," which also stars former rapper Ice Cube, follows Hill and Tatum's characters as they track down dangerous drug dealers in college as undercover cops.

"21 Jump Street," which debuted in 2012 with a budget of $42 million, grossed more than $200 million worldwide, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hill now has two Academy Award nominations to his name — the latest for Best Supporting Actor in "The Wolf of Wall Street." 

"While a red band trailer for the film was released in December, this clip includes new footage, such as the pair's run-in with a giant squid and a drug cartel headed up by the 'Mexican Wolverine,' which leads Jenko (Tatum) to try to speak in a Mexican accent. (Spoiler alert: his accent is hilariously awful)," wrote Kirthana Ramisetti, of the New York Daily News. 

While Hill is enjoying the limelight with "The Wolf of Wall Street," Tatum is reportedly in the midst of penning the sequel to his hit movie "Magic Mike."

Last week, Tatum said the movie is moving ahead without the original's director Steven Soderbergh, who recently retired from theatrical features, according to the New York Daily News. Soderbergh has not commented on the situation.

Ice Cube hit it big as a tough-talking cop and protective brother in this winter's hit "Ride Along," which has raked in $117 million at the box office on a $25 million budget, according to Variety. Ice Cube and costar Kevin Hart signed on this week to a "Ride Along" sequel.
