2012 is looking like it’s going to be the Year of the Action Film. With some many major titled hitting the silver screen after we drop the ball on New Year’s, it’s going to be hard to keep track and see them all. The latest film hitting the 2012 action blockbuster scene is G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Thanks to the kind people at Machinima, we’ve been granted a first look at the trailer for the sequel.
Channing Tatum is back for more alongside new additions to the series, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who debuts playing Roadblock and the almighty action star himself, Bruce Willis who plays the legendary Joe Colton, aka the original G.I. Joe. In my opinion, I thought for sure they would have used Terra Nova and Avatar’s Stephen Lang in the role. However, Bruce should be a good fit.
For the second helping of G.I. Joe, the team faces off against Zartan (played by Arnold Vosloo, his accomplices, and the world leaders he has under his influence. The film was directed by Jon M Chu. This will be Chu’s first big attempt at an action feature after previously only directing dance films. It’ll be interesting to see how he pulls it off. Check out the trailer below.
