New ‘G.I. Joe’ Trailer features Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis [Video]
Oh hells yeah…that’s what I’m talking about! Raise your hand if you’re nipples get hard at the thought of a new “G.I. Joe” movie (my hand is raised). The new flick is called “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, and it will in theaters on June 29, 2012. Today we get a first look at their teaser trailer.
Growing up, G.I. Joe was one of my very favorite franchises…in fact, it might be #1. I was always watching the cartoons and I had a ton of toys. I remember just about peeing myself when I got the big Sky Striker toy for Christmas one year.
So I was pumped a couple years ago when I heard they were making a new live-action G.I. Joe movie. It was released in 2009 and it was just ok. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. Maybe my expectations were too high. Maybe I’m just too much of a purist. I want the movie to at least somewhat resemble the show I grew up watching. I thought the first movie fell a little short, but I have high hopes for the sequel.
The new movie looks like it just dives right in to a whole bunch of G.I. Joe vs. Cobra stuff. Returning characters include Duke (Channing Tatum), Snake Eyes (Ray Park), Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee). Plus we get to see a bunch of new characters from the series, including Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki), Firefly (Ray Stevenson) and Zartan (Arnold Vosloo).
Check out the trailer below…and give me your thoughts.
