A chip off the old block! Michael Pena and Dax Shephard star in over the top ...

The first trailer for the upcoming remake of cop caper CHIPS sees its leading men Michael Pena and Jax Shephard in fine form.

Debuting on Wednesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the action-packed teaser introduces Shephard as rookie officer Jon Baker and Pena as undercover FBI agent Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello.

Taking inspiration from the light-hearted 1970s drama and bringing it into the modern day, the duo set about infiltrating corrupt LA cops.

The film's two stars gave Kimmel a helping hand to introduce the trailer, arriving in the studio on motorbikes and dressed in their police uniforms.
