The new international trailer for the upcoming sequel “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” has hit the internet, and despite some recycled footage from previous trailers this one packs a serious punch and even includes more of the original “G.I. Joe” star Channing Tatum.
The film was pushed back from its original release date last summer to a March 29, 2013 premiere, so it probably won’t win any Academy Awards but this film sure looks like it will have plenty of guns, explosions and pure brawn, especially with the new additions to the cast.

The trailer shows the G.I.s being betrayed and left for dead by their government in particular their President. It is still unclear how much of a role Channing Tatum will have in the sequel, however the film will be in good hands with action veterans Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson in starring roles.
John McClaine and The Rock are ready and willing to do whatever it takes to save the United States from the dangerous Cobra Alliance, who have kidnapped the President and infiltrated the White House as well as the entire United States government.
Jon Chu is at the helm of this big budget production with Adrianne Palicki, Walton Goggins, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Ray Stevenson and D.J. Cotrona in supporting roles. Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis do not seem ready to take any prisoners in this trailer, which is exactly what audiences are hoping for.
“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” finally, hopefully, hits theaters on March 29.
