First Look At The "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" Film Trailer

What happens when COBRA takes over the White House? Madness, obviously.

With director Jon M. Chu on board (Step Up 2 and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) you know you have a success on your hands, right? Don't judge Chu by his Bieber work before you check out the recently released G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer.

While the first film set a pretty low bar, the trailer for the sequel certainly has us at the edge of our seats. And no, it's not just the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" dubstep remix, either -- although that does help. The film will feature some old faces (actor Channing Tatum as Duke) as well as some new ones including Bruce Willis as Joe Colton, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as Roadblock and Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye. What happens when Cobra takes over the White House? Everyone's worst nightmare, obviously. Check out the trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation below, set to hit theaters on June 29th, 2012.

Posted by _jackbauer

this looks horrible

Posted by ARMIV2

Wow...that looks really...really...nice...

So is everyone from the first one dead or...?

Posted by NyxEquitis

As soon as I saw the word "Bieber" any expectations I had suddenly evaporated.

Posted by radar5

The Rock is no Marlon Wayans.

Posted by pspin

I actually like the first one, it was entertaining.

This one looks better it has ninjas, hot women (who are possible ninjas), and Bruce Willis, you dont need anythign else!

Posted by Dallas_Raines

@ARMIV2:

Yep, everyone dies except Snake Eyes. He was the only decent part of the original after all.

Posted by BlackArmor

doesn't the Rock have a leotard he has to go try on for his next Disney movie or something

Posted by Shadow_Thief

Well...at least Cobra Commander actually looks like Cobra Commander...

seconded, the first had taste and class this looks like your typical action brainless 'High concept low execution' stuff. I'll still see it though. ^^

Looks awesome. Kinda corny line they gave Bruce Willis at the end though

Posted by moywar700

finally a movie based off actions figures.

@difficlus:

Lay off the drugs, son.

The movie will probably be unforgivably awful, but certain parts of that trailer strike me as so cool (i.e.: the image of Roadblock holding that giant-ass heavy machine gun; the ninjas fighting on the mountain side.. come on, that stuff is like straight out of all of our heads when we were 11).

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Wow, please tell me that was Jinx at 0:32 and 1:50. Other than this, it looks decent thus far to me!

Could be. Jinx is supposed to be in the movie

Best beginning to any movie, ever:

Posted by SpidermanWins

Wow, that actually looks good. I like it. Snake Eyes, by the way, BEST GI JOE

ON SCREEN. He almost makes you want to watch Rise of Cobra again...almost

Posted by HT101

They've roped me in. No accelerator suit or whatever they were called in the last movie and Snake Eyes still looks awesome. I'm slightly excited for this movie.

Posted by FoxxFireArt

This trailer was actually looking interesting up until the moment of that cholesterol joke.

Seriously, why do they even bother casting anyone in these films other than Snake Eyes? It must be like the issue with the Predator vs. Aliens movie. Everyone is just going to see the creators fight in that movie, but they needed someone to talk. Everyone goes to the G.I. JOE movies to watch Snake Eyes kick ass.

@_jackbauer: Looks alot better than Captain American which I bet you liked lol

Edited by clumsyninja

Waiting for Silverhawks, Double Dragon, Thundercats, Defenders of the earth and M.A.S.K

Posted by dadarkknight36310

@BlackArmor: He was doing alot of those movies when his daughter was young, but now that she has come of age he has gotten back into the action genre. Not saying he will not do a family flick every now and then lol

Posted by Bestostero

They removed the rubber lips...personally i think the rubber lips were awesome, almost as awesome as the rubber nips lol

Jynx look terrible, Lady Jaye has long hair, awful, just awful. Should've kept Baroness and Scarlet.

Posted by AlKusanagi

It would be statistically impossible to be worse than the first one, which I still had a bit of dumb fun with, far more than the Transformers movies. This one doesn't look half bad, although I would have gone with someone other than Bruce as the original Joe.

Posted by Kurrent

Looks good but for some reason I think Duke is going to die in the beginning (that will blow)

Posted by Mr. Dead Pool

STORM SHADOW IS BACK!!!! WHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! 'Ahem' This looks interesting.

Posted by The_Tree

Looks 10x better than the first, I'm excited!

@Kurrent:

Why? Channing Tatum is terrible and should die in all of his films.

Posted by mattydeNero

This ACTUALLY looks awesome. Worlds better than the first one. I didn't see the jack-boots, but I did see Cobra Commander!!! I'm pretty stoked.

Posted by Shieldbearer

Looks like the got the kinks out of the franchise, Cobra Commander is wearing his helmet and attire, Snake Eyes is actually wearing a mask without facial features, and no accelerator suits. I am in!

Posted by PowerPlug

HECK YEAH!!! 
YOOOOO-JOE!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by StarKiller809

That looks amazing! I haven't seem the first one but I'm going to have to because I really want to see that. I heard that the first one wasn't good at all but I'm hoping. Adrianne Palicki looks good.

I think his character (Duke) is dead in this film

Posted by doordoor123

Wtf? This is a different movie. Im glad. The last one was horrible. Ill see this because it looks like an upgrade.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy

This is going to suck.

But at least Cobra Commander looks cool.

Posted by The Mast

@sEsposito7: Yeah, and it seemed good when we were 11. I would forgive this if it were made by 11 year olds.

It's not.

Posted by BlackArmor

I'm going to ask Snake Eyes in this movie what I asked Magneto in first class "Can we please just have a 2 hour movie of nothing but you killing (insert name of terrorist organization) no dialog no story no support characters just 2 hours of the only good thing in this entire movie, you killing stuff"

Posted by hellogan

Looks great! It's awesome that Bruce is in it. I didn't see Scarlett or the Baroness anywhere? Too Bad.

Posted by Mayo88m

Looks like some good summer fun. Can't wait.

Posted by FadeToBlackBolt

The first was great for standard action fare, the only thing that I don't like about this one is it looks like Duke is going to die. 

Posted by GothamRed

is that kamakura in this movie, wasn't expecting that

Posted by DXmagma

Is Snake Eyes gonna fuck shit up? Cause if so I'll enjoy it.

Edited by Mokey

Wait.. people are dissing a GI Joe trailer for looking like mindless action and explosions?

The hell did you watch the original cartoon for? Deep political intrigue?

Posted by HolyAvenger

Looks okay to me. Terrible trailer music.

Posted by WarMachineMarkV

- Well it looks better than the first one, but that's not saying much, the script for the 80's cartoons was better.

- I'll wait for it to come to redbox, if it's as terrible as expected I'm only out $1.20

Posted by frozenedge

Don't judge the movie from one trailer. at least wait until the movie comes out. this looks better than the first one, which for me was just some sci-fi thing they threw together

Posted by CitizenJP

I'm actually looking forward to this lol. The first one may not have been a friggin 5 star movie but it was entertaining and honestly...kinda cool. I'm pretty glad to see a sequel, I didn't think it was gonna happen. Oh, and thank god for the Cobra Commander redesign.
