G.I. Joe: Retaliation is finally coming to theaters on March 29th. Will all the delays be worth it for a kick ass action movie? I doubt it. From the talks of beefing up Channing Tatum’s (Magic Mike) role to adding 3D post conversion the movie has had its list of setbacks. However, the new release date is pretty well etched in stone so we will finally see The Rock kick some Cobra ass. Check out the newly released third trailer below:
While most of the trailer we have seen before we do get a few glimpses at some new footage towards the end. My view of this movie is pretty much the same as its always been, looks like big dumb stylized action, which I am more than fine with. The first movie was a complete letdown and I think they are working overtime to make up for it. There is a 10 minute long ninja fight with no dialogue…shut up and take my money.
Synopsis: The film will feature the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow and Firefly, all serving under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is still impersonating the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors to the United States, exterminating most of them and leaving a small group of survivors. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra’s control, with their advanced warheads aimed at innocent populaces around the world. Badly beaten, outnumbered and outgunned, the Joes make a desperate plan to overthrow Cobra Commander and take back the world, with their secret black operation called the “Second American Revolution”, which involves the return of the original G.I. Joe General Joseph Colton.
