I do not think I ever watched the trailer for GI Joe: Retaliation until now, and I have to say that I am impressed. It is a really good trailer, and I dig the techno version of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” used in it. It looks to have some good action and stunts. I never saw the first GI Joe, but I heard it was pretty bad. It looks like no one from the first one is back (correct me if I am wrong) except for Channing Tatum who gets killed off in the beginning. What I had to laugh at is the Bruce Willis scene in the end, but I don’t know how much he is actually in the film. This mostly looks like a film for Dwayne Johnson and some big guns. The film also stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, and Ray Stevenson. I am also attaching the Super Bowl spot that will be on for the big game on Sunday.
