A day after being premiered at the 2012 SXSW Festival, "21 Jump Street" had its Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday night, March 13. During the special screening event taking place at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre, leading stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill stole the limelight with their dapper attire while striking a pose together for the photographers.
While Tatum and Hill rocked their police uniforms at the SXSW premiere, the duo opted to go with formal suits for the L.A. screening. Tatum who plays Jenko in the film oozed masculinity in a gray plaid suit that he paired with a striped shirt. He arrived together with wife Jenna Dewan, who looked elegant in a white tube dress with folded detailing at the bust.
As for Hill, the funnyman who plays Schmidt in the action comedy looked sleek in three-piece black suit. Joining him on the red carpet was the original star of "21 Jump Street" TV series, Richard Grieco, who channeled his inner rocker in a black leather blazer matched with same colored shirt and pants.
Another cast member spotted on the red carpet was rapper Ice Cube who looked casual in an all-black ensemble while sporting fuzzy hair and beard. He was spotted arriving together with his young daughter. On the other hand, Rob Riggle was spotted larking around with director Phil Lord as they hit the venue.
Celebrity guests at the evening included Holly Robinson Peete who looked pretty in a printed halterneck jumpsuit, Brie Larson who showed off her legs in a pastel mini skirt and ankle boots, and Ellie Kemper who looked gorgeous in a ruffled dress. Cobie Smulders, Perrey Reeves, Sara Rue, Dakota Johnson and Renee Olstead were also snapped supporting the event.
In the action comedy based on Johnny Depp's 1980s TV series, Schmidt and Jenko are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, the unlikely pair use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school to chase down a dangerous drug ring.
After the L.A. special screening, "21 Jump Street" will open wide in cinemas across the U.S. on March 16.
