Dwayne Johnson was presented with Action Star of the Decade Award at Cinemacon, the annual convention of theater owners. The award was handed to him by his G.I. Joe: Retaliation director, John Chu, who called him “franchise Viagra”. Nice.
To celebrate, we’ve got a brand new trailer (from machinama) for the film which also stars Bruce Willis as the O.J. (Original Joe) as well as Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Walton Goggins, Elodie Yung and Ray Park.
This trailer does have a couple of new wrinkles, one involving the mastermind who set up the Joes and the other involving that awesomely fierce mountain-side ninja sword fight. Because fighting with sharp things at a 45 degree angle while clinging to a sheer rock face bazillions of feet in the air isn’t dangerous enough, there’s also an avalanche.
G.I.Joe: Retaliation charges noisily into theaters June 29 in the US and 3rd August in the UK.
