After getting a host of great new character posters from the upcoming action sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, last week, we now have an awesome new trailer for the film ahead of its release this summer.

Following up from 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Retaliation has been penned by Zombieland’s co-writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Jon M. Chu behind the camera – and judging from everything we’ve seen, it’s sure to be an explosive ride.

“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, the film is scheduled to be released on June 29,2012.”

The cast is pretty excellent, with old faces returning from the original and a wealth of fresh energy injected into the mix, with the likes of Channing Tatum, Ray Park, and Lee Byung-hun reprising their roles from the first film, and Dwayne (“The Rock”) Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, Ray Stevenson, RZA, D.J. Cotrona, Walton Goggins, Jonathan Pryce, and none other than Mr. Bruce Willis himself.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be out in the US on 29th June, and will be coming to us a little later on 3rd August. (We were to get it on 22nd June, but it looks like it’s been pushed back to the peak of summer, amongst all the big blockbusters – after seeing the epic The Dark Knight Rises two weeks earlier, maybe they’re expecting people to be hungry for more action.) For now, here’s your great new trailer. Enjoy.
