First 'Chips' Trailer: Starring Dax Shepard & Michael Pena

Warner Bros. Pictures released a funny first trailer for action comedy CHIPS starring Dax Shepard (Hit and Run, TV’s “Parenthood”) and Michael Pena (The Martian). Shepard also directs from a script he penned based on the characters from the popular ‘70s television series created by Rick Rosner.



Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Pena) 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.

Also starring are Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell (who is married to Sheppard), and Vincent D’Onofrio.

CHIPs is in theaters March 24, 2017.
