Full trailer for GI Joe: Retaliation is all kinds of explosive fun

Apr. 24, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Honestly, I didn't even need a second trailer for G.I. JOE: RETALIATION to convince me to see it, but hey, the more the merrier.  Starring Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Park, D.J. Cotrona, RZA, Arnold Vosloo, and mothaflippin' Walter Goggins, the sequel to the first film, G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA, will hopefully be put in the rear view mirrors and long-forgotten after this.

Enough talk.  There are explosions waiting:

As a lifelong Joe fan, I'm really hoping that this can live up to expectations.  Director John Chu seems to have taken great care in crafting something that will.  I never thought I'd want to shake the hand of the guy who directed STEP UP 2: THE STREETS, but there it is.

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION sounds its battle cry on June 29, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: I'm dying to hear Cobra Commander speak. I miss his hiss.

goddamn you Dwayne Johnson and your muscley charisma, I'll end up seeing this in theaters. Looks like 100 minutes of explosions and one-liners. There's a place for the Nolans and Bournes in action and a place for this. Are you not entertained!!!?

That London sequence looks brutal. This looks like it will be an honest and fun summer flick.

I don't think this is very spoilery to say...but it seems clear from that trailer that Channing Tatum isn't making it past the first half hour of the flick. They're totally gonna kill Duke. This is gonna be The Rock's movie.

The first was utter shit......

It had Marlon Waynes, shitty humor, bad pacing, crappy back stories (the two ninjas).

This one looks fun though. It kinda looks as though it threw away most of the garbage from the first, which is good. Plus Steve Summers is a garbage director.

"There's only one man who could authorize a strike like that, and I voted for him."

Great line. For continuity's sake, please don't kill Duke, though!

this does look alot better than the first POS. and i do like the fact that duke kicks the bucket (assuming it's not a ruse of some kind). and snake-eyes looks pretty cool (i'm assuming ray park still plays him?)...but i just don't know...

Looks so awful digital it's not even funny anymore. Soon the end (of movies) is near. Now 35mm soon will be over in Hollywood as well... Just can't believe it.

I am rather curious as to why you even watched the trailer. Surely you knew you wouldn't enjoy it? And remind us again why you hate digital so much. No, it's not film, but it's really not as god awful as you make it out to be. Best get used to the changes in Hollywood, cause the only thing Hollywood will ever continue to do is change.

Retaliation looks awesome, it looks ten times better than the bad first film. Sign me up for this movie in June.

I liked the first, and I'm liking the look of this as well. Still, it seems like they couldn't decide if they wanted to make a sequel or reboot. I for one wouldn't mind if they kept Rachel Nichols and Dennis Quaid in the film.

Hated the first one, but this looks like an improvement. If they actually killed off Duke I would be highly surprised and impressed. My guess would be that he appears dead throughout the movie and shows up at the end. Maybe Tatum didn't want to do it and they paid him a lot to show up for continuity's sake. I would have to imagine he was under contract for sequels, though. In any event: The Rock, I wish I knew how to quit you.

This looks beyond sick. Didn't mind the first one but this looks a hundred times better in every way. Finally a sequel worth seeing.

Brilliant! Like I said before, I love the more guerilla feel this has than the slick and plasticky first one, which I did enjoy. This feels a lot more honest and punchy, and Bruce Willis teaming up with Dwayne Johnson is a great idea. Glad to see Jon Chu come into his own. He made Never Say Never (kinda) watchable.

This looks significantly better than the first film, or at least the trailer sells is like it is. Less Tatum, more Willis and Johnson. Better action, more Snake Eyes. I will probably see this, even if I did think the first film was fairly forgettable.

The first movie had a MAJOR casting problem with the Joes. It looks like they fixed it in this movie.
