Well, another day, another G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer that shows things exploding, people running while seemingly coated in Crisco to replicate sweat, people shooting at various things, some sword fights on a mountain, and Bruce Willis shows up, shoots people, and smirks for a little bit. Oh, and The Rock glares at things and occasionally does that eyebrow cocking thing. Exciting?
Also, you see the White House being taken over by the Cobras, along with the new casting additions of Bruce Willis, The Rock, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, RZA, and D.J. Cotrona. The returning cast features Channing Tatum, Ray Park, Lee Byung-hun, Arnold Vosloo and Jonathan Pryce. Check it out:
It looks like pretty generic modern action movie stuff (Look, a famous national landmark! Look, slow motion shots that speed up and then slow back down! Look, things repeatedly exploding! Look, a cameo by an action megastar!), but hey, one can’t exactly expect much from a film that’s a sequel to a movie that is based on a Hasbro action figure line and 1980s cartoon series, right? Oh well, G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens on June 29, and is directed by Jon Chu.
Is knowing truly half the battle?
