The trailer for the new G.I.JOE movie coming out next summer has just been released! The G.I. Joe team faces off against Zartan, his accomplices, and the world leaders he has under his influence. It looks way better than the last movie for a lot of reasons! First let’s take a look at the trailer.
So..um, yeah the first obvious improvement in my opinion was the removal of a mouth from Snake Eyes’ mask. That looked ridiculous in the first film. When the trailer opened with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson i admittedly had my doubts but actually i think he is a pretty good fit to play Roadblock.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Roadblock in G.I.JOE Retaliation
I know, I know. Roadblock was a black guy and so was Heavy Duty. In fact they were cousins. Despite all that i still think it’s a good fit and besides, Dwayne Johnson is at least half black.
Now my favorite femme fatale of G.I.JOE was always either Scarlett or the Baroness. Both of these buxom babes werein the first film but it doesn’t look like they will be appearing in the second which make me a little sad. 🙁
Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye in G.I.JOE Retaliation
However, Adrianne Palicki is looking pretty great as LADY JAYE. Much, much better than she did as Wonder Woman. Let’s hope she plays the part well.
Now, obviously the addition of the kind of silver screen badassery, Mr. Bruce Willis, makes this a must see movie for me. Even if he is only in it for a few minutes. The fact that he plays the original G.I.JOE is a pretty great nod to the Joe fans too.
In summation, i don’t know if this will be a great movie but i WILL be going to see it. Hopefully it won’t disapoint. Until then we will wait and look for more crumbs to drop about this movie. Because Knowing is Half the Battle!
