One thing is for sure, the summer of 2012 isn’t going to be short on action movies. Between THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and THE AVENGERS, audiences will have their share of big screen explosions and chases, mixed in with some intense gunplay. But one film that looks to be pulling out all the stops is the sequel to G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA… this time we’ve got a different director, bigger stars, and from the looks of it some spectacular battle scenes. The second full trailer for G.I. JOE: RETAILIATION has premiered sequel via YouTube user Machinima, and you can see it below. Being a fan of the popular toy franchise from my younger days, I think I can safely say this looks like the G.I. JOE movie I always wanted to see. Let’s hope the trailers are indicative of what we can expect from the finished film. Oh, and there’s also the hot new Lady Jaye (played by Adrianne Palicki) theatrical poster which you can see above… I want one, now.
G.I. JOE 2: RETALIATION is directed by Jon Chu from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and stars Channing Tatum, Ray Park, Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Elodie Yung, RZA, DJ Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, Joseph Mazzello, Walton Goggins and DeRay Davis.
G.I. JOE 2: RETALIATION is set to hit theaters on June 29, 2012.
