The New CHIPS Movie Is Going To Be Hilarious And The Trailer Is Proof

Yes, it basically feels like 21 Jump Street on motorcycles. But I’m completely OK with that.

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, friend of Jalopnik Dax Shepard and Michael Pena rode directly into the studio (well, Pena was trailered in, but that’s the joke) on their CHP bikes dressed as Ponch and Jon. Then they debuted the trailer for the new movie, due out this March.

Here’s the big debut:

CHIPS is, of course, a remake of the NBC motorcycle cop drama series that ran in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. Like the aforementioned 21 Jump Street—which I will admit I loved—this new one goes way over the top on explosions and dick jokes, more than the original show ever did. But hey, it looks fun! I’ll definitely go see it. (And yes, it’s CHIPS now, not CHiPs like it used to be. I dunno either.)

Well yeah, but any movie is more awesome “on motorcycles”. Rogue One has been a smash hit, but imagine if the Rogue strike force had been a gang of galactic motorcycle hooligans? Awesome.

Matrix on motorcycles? Awesome

Torque on motorcycles? Awesome

Gone with the Wind on motorcycles? Who wouldn’t want to see Rhett sweep Scarlet off her feet and ride off into the sunset on an Electra Glide?

The Wizard of Oz on motorcycles? That is just what the movie always needed.
