New G.I. Joe: Retaliation Promo
Drive it like you stole it!

12 December 2012  |  Written by James White

One of the dangers for a movie that has been waiting for release as long as G.I. Joe: Retaliation has is that we’ve seen several trailers already. So there’s not as much new footage to go around in today's offering. Fortunately for director John M Chu, there have been some reshoots as the action sequel goes through the 3D-fication process, so there are some fresh snippets here. Check it out below.

 

Introduced by The Rock himself, Dwayne Johnson, we get a sort of greatest hits of previous promos first: the cliff face ninja scrap, the Joes being betrayed, attacked and left for dead as Cobra consolidates its power after successfully replacing the US President (Jonathan Pryce) and shots of the team in action.

We also get some of the villains’ master plan, including the demonstration of a new super-weapon that takes out the middle of London (cue Empire’s HQ team relocating to a secret bunker underneath Stonehenge… which is probably not as secure now that we’ve talked about it. Dammit) and Johnson’s Roadblock leading our heroes in a strike back against the baddies.

Then some new material kicks in, including more banter between Roadblock and Channing Tatum’s Duke, plus extra moments with Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) and Bruce Willis’ Joe Colton, who comes out of retirement to help his team.

We’re still hopeful – particularly with Franchise Viagra Johnson in place – that Retaliation can wipe the disappointing first movie from our brains. It storms in on March 27.

RE: First off the mark....
The first film was a rather surprisingly entertaining cheesy action movie with an absolutely gorgeous looking Sienna Miller in it. I'm hoping for more of the same! Oh and did I mention the lovely Sienna Miller....just checking :) More

First off the mark....
...to trash London this year. Ok, we've all complained how many times New York gets blown up, it's London's turn this year what with Star Trek 2 and Thor 2...But as to the film...It look's aweful! Will bypass it Easter time. More

RE: Ending spoiler?!
L: MB2 L: daveyhd Is it me or does that trailer feature the "space weapon" getting blown up near the end?? Trailers are ruining movies these days. Way too much given away. Marketing guys are destroying the fun of going in knowing only a little and saving the money shots for the actual film. eah, was on the edge of my seat wondering if Bruce Willis and The Rock were gonna win this one. sp; Did they win? i do hope so ;) More
