G.I. JOE RETALIATION international trailer

Posted on November 2, 2012 at 7:52 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

A new international trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation has gone online.  There’s a lot of recycled footage, but a little new stuff.  The film was pushed back from it’s original June 29th, 2012 opening to a March 29th, 2013 release. No official word was given, but the smart money was on giving more time to work on the 3D post-conversion, or time to do reshoots to include more Channing Tatum.

Jon Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation also stars Adrianne Palicki, Walton Goggins, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, RZA, Ray Stevenson, and D.J. Cotrona. G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens on March 29, 2013.

Official synopsis;

A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF 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. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, from a screenplay by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe(R) characters, the film is scheduled to be released on June 29,2012.

This looks like a lot of fun.  I’ll watch The Rock in anything, and I am still stoked at seeing Cobra Commander with the mask.
