Just when I forgot about the existence of G.I. Joe Retaliation, the troubled sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra, Paramount has released a new trailer for it today. Originally set to come out last June, the film now has a release date of March 29, 2013. Unfortunately I can’t imagine pushing the release back will make the movie any better, but we’ll have to wait and see.
G.I. Joe Retaliation stars Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, Walton Goggins, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, RZA, Ray Stevenson, and D.J. Cotrona, and is directed by Jon Chu. Hit the jump for the trailer and full 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.
