'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Trailer 2

The new trailer continues to remind us we should forget about the first film.

It's hard to imagine being excited for G.I. Joe: Retaliation after the first movie. There were some good parts in the first one but overall it was disappointing to fans of the comics and cartoon. It was surprising to hear that a sequel was being planned because the first wasn't well received. Thankfully, what we've seen so far has been looking pretty good.

Paramount has released a second full trailer for the movie. Check it out.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be released on June 29, 2012 and is directed by Jon M. Chu. Who plans on going to see it?

So excited about this movie. I avoided the first one after seeing the trailers. How things have changed for the better!

Love that they are using tech from the 80s cartoon and the current IDW comic series.

At least it looks more promising than the first one. Especially with Bruce Willis as John McCla... I mean, Joe Colton.

Awesome, no ridiculous mouth sculpture on Snake Eye's mask.

They picked the most cliche epic music possible.

The other trailers were better.

Which characters will be in this movie?

wow looks awesome !!

Whether you liked the previous movie or not, most likely not, and no matter how good the new movie looks, its still upsetting to think that all the characters introduced in the first movie are just killed. Marlan Wayans, Quade, Tatum, Nicholes, etc. They're all dead sir.

That starts the movie out on a major downer. Imagine going into X-Men 3 with some of the major characters killed... I mean imagine them making a Green Lantern 2 starting with the death of Hal Jordan because fans didn't like the first film...

I just don't like them killing everyone off.

This movie looks great...of course movie trailers are designed to do that I just hope this movie fairs better than the first.

Yeah! G.I. Joe!

So does Duke die? Tatum was probably busy filming for something else if so and could only make a cameo...

Posted by k4tzm4n

Got to speak with Chu, Rock and a few others at NYC's Toy Fair about this movie a few months back. They're all really passionate about it and you can tell they're huge fans. Hopefully it turns out to be as fun as the trailers look!

It looks like he's killed in the initial ambush, but I wouldn't be surprised if somehow he magically shows up later. I thought he was terribly wooden in the first film, but his performance in 21 Jump Street really won me over.

I really hope so and I have to agree with you on the wooden aspect, but then again I don't know much about G.I. Joe so Duke always seemed the wooden type to me anyway. Agreed, he was hilarious in 21 Jump Street!

@Daywing: Even if Duke was meant to be a very straight and serious role, there still wasn't any passion behind his performance/delivery. But yeah, 21 Jump Street was a very nice surprise :D

I am a little sad that it looks like they killed everybody from the first film. Either that some of them got captured like Snake Eyes was in one of the previous trailers. Looks like its gonna be a movie though

Posted by Mesamia

I feel like this will be much better than the last movie.

Interesting

Yup! And the Rock said they apparently have a pretty brutal melee.

Cobra Commander with a mirror mask. That's just awsome. Now where the hell is Destro? Is he in it?

Posted by Aiden Cross

Not enough Snake-Eyes.

Actually, just make a movie purely for Snake-Eyes.

Posted by JamDamage

How is Storm Shadow alive??? Didn't he get Darth Maul'd in the last one??

I asked Jon M. Chu (the director) and here was his answer:

Chu: (laughs) We have a little explanation, but it’s hard because at the same time we’re like “we have to go into this whole thing” and I don’t want to know how he survives and all that, but you definitely get a reason why. And then we get him back and we’re moving on.

Chu and the producer told me Snake Eyes will get plenty of screen time.

Jon M. Chu: That’s the one thing I felt like we could really milk in this movie: Snake Eyes versus Storm Shadow. Everyone wanted to see more, everyone wanted to see a better, crazier fight so we give that to them in spades. I can’t wait for people to see Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. To me they are elemental... ying versus yang, and when they go at it it’s pretty epic.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura: There’s a lot more of that story line in this movie. So you’re going to see different elements of both of them doing a lot more in this movie. I would say that storyline is just about as big as the whole Joes storyline. It’s a little bit like Empire Strikes Back the way Luke is off with Yoda and the other guys are trying to fight the fight.

this already looks a hundred times better than Rise of Cobra...but I still dislike that Destro, Scarlett and Baroness will not be returning....

i also heard some rumors about this movie that i already dislike as well...but i will definitely be first in line for this lol

Posted by ThomasElliot

NOTHING can be worse than Snake-eyes sucking on the inside of his own mask and exo-powersuits that allows Marlan Wayans to dodge missiles.

for that reason alone, this looks better.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation UK Trailer with NEW FOOTAGE!

The hits just keep on coming! While this trailer is quite similar to the US one, there is some additional footage in the Cobra “war room” and some extra dialogue with Firefly! Hot damn!

Hell yeah i'll be watching this.

Dafuq? Did I just see Snake eyes talk at that one part???

Posted by Om1kron

I actually liked the first movie a lot, it was corny. Yes, but G.I. Joe, is corny and when people can accept the fact that G.I. Joe is not about bad asses, it's about good guys winning against bad in super stupid ways then it's easier to enjoy the first movie and of course everyones favorite character is snake eyes, but you're going to make a fan service movie with snake eyes and storm shadow then milk it on it's own time like marvel did with wolverine... See how well that works for you.

I feel the same. I hate reviews a lot of times for Comic and Cartoon adaptations. They use the comments "it's unbelievable" "this can't really happen" "why is there comedy" etc. My answer its a movie that is "fake" and based on an "unreal" subject matter.

I feel the same way when watching Transformers and Green Lantern. While they have mixed reviews I watch them for the enjoyment and excitement of the movie. I never go into an adaptation trying to compare it to the original subject matter. Why because things have to change to make it work on the Big Screen and to get a wider audience. Is it always for the best, probably not, but it usually still provides a good watch.
