G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Third Trailer blows up London...I like London!
It isn’t saying much (See Wrath of The Titans) but it does look better than the last film. OK that’s a little disingenuous, this film does the very cool thing of adding not just Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (on a ridiculous hot streak following Fast 5 & Journey 2) but Bruce Willis as well, as the “reason we call ourselves Joes.”
“A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA, which grossed over $300M worldwide, Paramount Pictures, MGM and Skydance Productions, in association with HASBRO and di Bonaventura Pictures, commences production on G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.”
The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. It rolls out on the 29th of June In North America and a few other countries; but in a reversal of films like The Avengers, Prometheus and Battleship, it’s major international roll out doesn’t’ begin until August, as the film needs to avoid the tail end of The European Football Championships and there simply aren’t any “early” dates left.
Will this film be any better than the previous one? Well the producers’ have certainly listened to what people didn’t like too much about that movie and sought to jettison almost everything about that one and pretty much start all over. I’m betting the Johnson / Willis combination will at least give the film a chance to convince audiences that it is worth watching
