The first trailer for Jon M. Chu‘s G.I. Joe: Retaliation is here and to no surprise it’s action-packed. The film features the return of Channing Tatum with the addition of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ray Stevenson and Bruce Willis. The first film was praised for being a cheesy, but fun summer action film. I wasn’t all that impressed with it, but I can see its appeal.
I’m really hoping G.I.: Retaliation does what Fast Five did for the Fast/Furious series. Act as a refreshing new entry that somehow works on an entertaining level, balancing the action and silly humor without going too far in either direction. The trailer does a great job of selling the action with a little more bad ass than the previous film due to The Rock and Willis climbing aboard. What happened to the rest of the crew though?
The film opens wide on June 29th, 2012.
Check out the trailer below.
What are your thoughts? Does the trailer look better than the previous film?
