This is the third trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The film was originally supposed to be released this past summer, but was pulled and pushed back to do a 3D conversion of the film (in other words, to make more $$$). I am still interested in this film because it still looks like a good action flick with some great stunt sequences. I like the first two trailers better, and I feel like this is more like a reminder trailer. I think audiences were getting pretty pumped to see it, so let’s see if the film brings in the crowd in March.
The cast includes D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis, and Dwayne Johnson.
Please note that the below synopsis still has the old release date in it.
“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.

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.
