Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes are locked in battle atop a snowy cold mountain. Somehow Storm Shadow has gotten the upper hand and he’s got Snake Eyes pinned to the ground. Try as he might, Snake Eyes can’t escape. While they’ve battled many times, they’re always equally matched, and it’s hard for either to get the upper hand. But not this time. On this day, it looks like Strom Shadow is finally going to win. But as he applies even more force with seething anger in his eyes, all of a sudden, Jinx appears from behind and she’s got some sort of breathing device that she puts on his nose and mouth, and a second later, Storm Shadow falls unconscious. I then hear director Jon M. Chu call cut.
But let me back up a second.
As I type these words I’m on a plane back to Los Angeles. It’s Wednesday, October 26, 2011 and yesterday I got to spend all day on the set of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. While I’m clearly in the minority as I really dug the first film, after getting to see a great looking sizzle reel on set, watch the filming of two big action scenes, and speak with Chu, Byung-Hun Lee (Storm Shadow), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Elodie Yung (Jinx), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), DJ Cotrona (Flint), and Ray Stevenson (Firefly), and producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, I’m 100% sure the sequel is going to be even better. Hit the jump for more.
