The new tv spot for G.I. Joe: Retaliation was set to air during yesterday’s Daytona 500, which was rained out. That didn’t stop it from winding its way to the web, however. So, of course, we had to share. The film, the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is directed by Jon M. Chu from a script by Zombieland’s Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Channing Tatum, Ray Park, and Lee Byung-hun return for another round where they will be joined by Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, Ray Stevenson, RZA, D.J. Cotrona, and Walton Goggins.
The story is simple: When Cobra spy Zartan has most of the Joes assassinated, the remaining Joes band together to strike back.
This 3rd Trailer features mostly footage that we’ve already seen, but with a few new snippets, including more of Bruce Willis as the original Joe, doing what he does best…smirking:
“Call me Joe.” Is that like, “Call me Snake” or “…call me Irresponsible”? Either way, this looks like too much fun. The first one, I have to admit looked like novacaine for the brain, but this has potential, thanks in no small part to Dwayne… “The Rock”… Johnson. He’s a party unto himself, Every time he smiles I expect to see a flash of cartoon sunlight gleaming from his teeth, just before he winks at the camera. Since he’s always in on the joke, I can only assume that this big cartoon adventure of a movie will be highly entertaining, not to mention I am loving all of the ninja assassin effects, especially that fight on the side of the mountain! We’ll see. G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens in the UK on 22nd June and then June 29 in the US.
