We’ve now got an awesome new trailer to share with you, courtesy of EW via Collider, and though it’s only thirty seconds long, so more like a TV spot in length, it’s pretty damn cool whatever you want to call it.
Jon M. Chu has helmed the project from a script by Zombieland’s Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Channing Tatum, Ray Park, and Lee Byung-hun reprising their roles from G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and joining them will be Johnson, Willis, Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, Ray Stevenson, RZA, D.J. Cotrona, and Walton Goggins.
Having Reese and Wernick as writers can be nothing but good news, because Zombieland was such a great mix of solid action and dialogue, and Chu’s experience directing two of the Step Up films means he should be well-versed in directing highly-choreographed sequences, moving from the dancing of those films to the action in Retaliation.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is coming to the UK on 22nd June and will be released in the US a week later on 29th June. By all accounts, it should be a lot of fun, and here’s the new trailer to prove it.
