Trailer for CHiPs the movie released

Updated: 


CHiPs, the iconic 1970s TV series about the California Highway Patrol is back.

A feature-length adaption of the show is set to hit the big screen in spring, and ahead of its launch an action packed trailer has been released.

The film stars Dax Sheperd as retired X Games motorcycle rider Jon Baker and Michael Pena as undercover FBI agent Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello. Together, the pair pursue crooked cops within the California Highway Patrol.

In the trailer, they cruise along suburban streets, causing as much trouble as they've set out to solve. As they filter through traffic in the opening scene, their wide handlebars knock wing mirrors from the stationary cars, before they are seen riding away from a fiery crash.

The film is based on the TV series of the same name, which debuted on NBC in 1977. Larry Wilcox and Erik Estrada starred in the six season show.
