Ths show also highlighted the personal lives of Ponch and Jon.
The trailer dropped Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Dax Shepard wrote and directed the upcoming film, which looks to be a lot of fun and action-packed.
Shepard discussed the tone he set out to create for his film with EW
“My aim was somewhere in the Bad Boys, Lethal Weapon world,” he shared. “That was my take on it. It’s interesting because it’s definitely a comedy, where the show is not, but the stakes are very real and the world is real and the physics are real and all those things are grounded. Insane situations happen but it’s not happening in a satire world or a heightened world. It’s a very real world.”

CHIPS is set to hit the movie theaters on 24 March 2017
