Paramount Pictures has released a new action-packed Japanese trailer for G.I. Joe: Retailiation. It doesn't really have any new footage, but it's fun listening to the Japanese narratator excitedly talk about the film during the trailer. It's also been reported recently that there won't be more of Channing Tatum in the film as previously thought. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura had this to say about it in a recent interview...
No, it’s not. That is a complete rumor. I don’t know where that started. Literally, Channing shot for - if I have it wrong, I’m off by an hour - four hours, five hours? So it wasn’t really about that at all.
The Jon Chu directed movie stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Bruce Willis, and Dwayne Johnson. It comes out in theaters in in 3D on March 29th, and I really hope it ends up being as exciting as it looks.
A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA, which grossed over $300M worldwide, Paramount Pictures, MGM and Skydance Productions, in association with HASBRO and di Bonaventura Pictures, commences production on G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, from a screenplay by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe(R) characters.
