In anticipation of the the release of the new trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation next week, Paramount Pictures has released a new UK poster for the Jon Chu-directed film featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung and Ray Park.
I'm really hoping this movie turns out to be as exciting as it looks. It definitely looks better than the first film. Interest has died down on the sequel since it was delayed due to reshoots and a 3D conversion. I'm wondering if the studio will be able to spark up that interest in audiences again, because I'm afraid that the long pause on the film may have killed it at the box office.
The new trailer is set to hit on Yahoo! on December 12th, and the movie will finally be released in theaters on March 29th, 2013.
A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I.
