New “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” Trailer!

by on April 26, 2012

This comes courtesy of our friends at Machinima – the brand new theatrical trailer for the second G.I. Joe film, Retaliation. Now, as I said when I dissected the first trailer, I was incredibly disappointed with the first film, but the sequel looks infinitely better. I mean, they’re actually wearing Army fatigues, they’re actually shooting realistic weapons, and it has the Rock AND Bruce Willis in it; it trumps the first one in setup alone. I’m sure this won’t be any big work of art, but it does look like the filmmakers have addressed the problems fans had with the first one before making the second one. Channing Tatum’s Duke appears to be the only character returning from the first film, aside from Snake Eyes of course, and even he doesn’t seem like he’s in it much. Obviously, nobody wants to get their hopes up too high, but it’s certainly off to a better start. The film opens June 29th. Guess I know where I’m taking my little brother for his birthday…
