Warner Bros. Pictures has finally released the first official trailer for the comedy movie, CHIPS. The first trailer has lots of action and lots of penis jokes, along with some over-the-top motorcycle stunts. Dax Shepard wrote, directed, executive produced and stars in the big screen adaptation of the classic television series, taking on the role of Jon Baker played by Larry Wilcox in the TV show. Michael Pena co-stars as Officer Frank Poncherello, originally played by Erik Estrada. The cast also includes Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell, and Vincent D’Onofrio. Warner Bros will release CHIPS in theaters on March 24, 2017.
The original series creator of CHiPs, Rick Rosner, is involved in this R-rated action comedy as an executive producer. Michael Peña, Robert J. Dohrmann, and Nate Tuck also executive produced.
The Plot: Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten up pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job—inside the CHP. The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker’s bike skills combined with Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.
