New G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Trailer Destroys London

     April 24, 2012


Paramount has released a new trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation that reveals more of the story and showcases some really cool action that’s been amplified by some great looking CGI.  While I was in the minority for liking the first G.I. Joe movie, I’ll admit the new trailer looks like a huge step forward for the franchise and the casting of Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock and Bruce Willis as the original Joe seems like it’s going to pay off in a big way at the box office.  Hit the jump to check out the new trailer which features London getting hit by a Cobra missle.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens June 29 and also stars Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum, Walton Goggins, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, RZA, Ray Stevenson, and D.J. Cotrona.

In addition to the brand new trailer, earlier today I did exclusive video interviews at CinemaCon with Dwayne Johnson and director Jon M. Chu.  Hit the links to watch.  Both revealed a lot of new information.

    I don’t get why Duke is not really in this movie. Channing Tatum actually isn’t getting on my nerves lately.

    • Tony

      I agree. I didnt like him until Haywire and 21 Jump street. Even Magic Mike looks ok

  • Tony

    Channing Tatum definitely dies.

  • TheApprentice12

    OMG! This looks to be a much bigger improvement over the first one. :D

  • Nomis1700

    Alright, I didn’t expect to see London being blowed up in that kind of fashion! Looks pretty neat. But then again, I despise the first movie and for the rest, this doesn’t look like quite an improvement.

    If Duke dies then why do they have the character poster with the big scar on his face. I think he’ll end up being alive.

    • slinky317

      They did the same thing for Cyclops during X3 – had him on posters and all suited up, but he was only him the film for about 5 minutes and never even wore the X-men outfit.

    Hollywood is fu*** up!
    In the remake of Mission Impossible all the operatives die except Cruise’s character. WTF! And Phelps was a bad guy. LOL!
    Screw tinsel town.

  • wha..wha..what?

    terry…. we are in the year 2012.

  • Neo

    This is simply a formulaic summer action movie to give established (aging) action movie actors their contractually-obligated summer action movie in the year 2012. Wait to rent it, if you really want to see it.

    FYI I am seeing The Avengers (aka Iron Man 3) in the theater on opening day.

    • Ur mom

      Hey, The Avengers won’t be Iron Man 3. I seen it in a fan screening and all the characters played out evenly. Can’t wait to see it again!! :)

  • Brian

    If the original really turned most of you off from even giving this film a chance that’s fine. Less of a crowd I have to deal with on opening day.

  • origin story

    mortal kombat with passion

  • Richard

    So i guess Duke dies that is so mess up man.
    WTF! i’m still watching this movies especially after just seeing London get blown away.

    I am sick and tired of hollywood coming into an established franchise with a built in fan base and completing destroying its formula. JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE MAKING A MOVIE DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO KILL OFF MAIN CHARACTERS!

  • Ash Talon

    I can’t believe people are upset about Duke being killed off. Tatum is terrible for the part. And the character isn’t even interesting. He’s just the plain-Jane everyman. There are more interesting characters and better actors to portray them.

    I think this movie looks great. It’s a huge step up from the first one. I’m honestly more excited for this than Avengers. I’m looking forward to both, but I think Retaliation has more to prove and therefore piques my interest more.

    • ray

      This isnt about Tatum is about DUKE. Hate The actor not the character. Like everyone here is say Channing tatum at least improve since the 1st film. I like him in haywire and 21 jump street. He looks fine in the new trailer. Duke is my character and i dont him dead regardless of who is playing him. Beside if he dies than my girl is not wanna got see it and watch that striping movie that he is in which apprently comes out the same day FML

  • Chachi

    Let’s not forget that Storm Shadow supposedly dies in the first one yet here he is in the sequel. Maybe Duke “dies” early and we’ll see him in part 3.

  • THundersauresrex

    im not confident that Duke is sporting the Scar in the trailer that he has on the poster….. maybe he “Dies”

    Actually impressed! Looks like they’ve improved a lot from last time. But what the hell is up with the cast?! Looks like a bunch of b list pretty boy actors have been thrown together, with the exception of The Rock and Bruce Willis, who just seems to be showing up in movies these days to remind audiences he’s still alive!
