Adrianne Palicki and D.J. Cotrona Talk G.I. JOE: RETALIATION, RED DAWN and More

     May 12, 2012


With director Jon M. Chu‘s G.I. Joe: Retaliation opening June 29, Paramount has been amping up the promotional campaign by debuting a ton of character posters and a great looking trailer.  As a fan of the first film, I’ll admit the sequel looks even better and it’s rocking a great cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum, Walton Goggins, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, RZA, Ray Stevenson, and D.J. Cotrona.

At this year’s CinemaCon, I got to speak with Adrianne Palicki (Lafy Jaye) and D.J. Cotrona (Flint).  They talked about their reaction to the new trailer and five-minute sizzle reel, the tone of the film, the action, and more.  In addition, with the Red Dawn remake getting released later this year, I asked Palicki is she had seen the finished film.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my extended video interviews with Dwayne Johnson or director Jon M. Chu, just click the links.
