Tatum won the bet, but indicated during their appearance on “Conan,” that Hill hasn't yet made good on the terms
While Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are busy anticipating the opening of their action comedy sequel, “22 Jump Street,” there is still some lingering unfinished business from the first film in the series. The guys dropped by “Conan,” where Conan O'Brien called them out about an x-rated bet they'd made before the premiere of “21 Jump Street.”
Tatum revealed that an opening weekend of $30 million or more is considered a success in Hollywood. Hill thought that their film would just break that, while Tatum was more confident, thinking it would break $35 million.
So Hill told him that if it breaks $35 million, he would kiss the tip of Tatum's … ahem.
“Over the boxers,” Hill was fairly quick to qualify. “I'd say that's a key piece of fabric for the story.”
Tatum won the bet, as the film made $36.1 million in its opening weekend, but Hill hasn't made good on the terms yet. Tatum said that he offered to let Hill double down, but Hill said his “gambling career has come to an abrupt end.”
“22 Jump Street” is looking to do well, as critics are soundly impressed – it's currently earning a 93% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film opens in theaters on Friday, June 13.
