G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer Breakdown With Jon Chu
The G.I. Joe 2 director talks us through the footage

submit to reddit

With G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s new trailer blasting onto our screens, there’s a whole new world of Cobra scheming, Bruce-and-Dwayne buddy mayhem, weaponised ‘tec, mysterious ninjas and exploding avalanches for us to chew over. So what’s Cobra's devilish plan? What happens to Channing Tatum’s Duke in that opening reel? And what in the name of the Olympics is happening to London? Who better to talk us through the carnage than Retaliation’s director, Jon Chu? We engaged Empire’s satellite to track down the Step Up 3D and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never man to a Hollywood lot where he promised us “a big action-adventure summer movie” that will introduce G.I. Joe to a new generation. But what was it like going from Bieber to Bruce?

Origins

Justin Bieber and Bruce Willis have a lot more in common than you’d think! It’s fun to do that jump as a storyteller. I was never a professional dancer before I did the Step Up movie but I love to throw myself into a world, absorb it and fall in love with it. I grew up with ‘Joe’ - I had all the toys and used to watched the cartoons every afternoon - and this movie will introduce it to a new generation.
