Warner Bros has released a trailer for the big screen version of CHiPs – and it's super-charged and very silly

The trailer for cop comedy film CHiPs is out, and it is just what you need to brighten your day.

Amid the hard-hitting – albeit excellent – titles that have been making headlines this awards season, this ridiculous action film is set to be one of your guilty pleasures of the year.

Starring Dax Shepard (Hit and Run), Michael Pena (The Martian) and a lot of penis jokes, it takes inspiration from the classic 1970s television show by Rick Rosner.

Dax plays past-it motorbike sensation Jon Baker, while Michael takes on the role of full-of-it FBI investigator Frank Poncherello as the pair join the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

Dax, who also wrote and directed it, takes viewers through their cringe-worthy exploits and even makes us wonder whether their chalk-and-cheese partnership might even make them, dare we say it, good at their job…

CHiPs is a Warner Bros. Pictures film and will be released in UK cinemas on March 24.
