WATCH: New Trailer For 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Debuts At CinemaCon
Paramount Pictures is relying on new faces Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, and even Bruce Willis to breathe fresh life into the new action flick, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the sequel to the lackluster 2009 G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. After a bit of a house-cleaning, which included replacing former director Stephen Sommers (The Mummy franchise) with relative newcomer and hopeless G.I. Joe fan, Jon M. Chu (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never), the new G.I. Joe is only retaining the suddenly ubiquitous Channing Tatum (The Vow, 21 Jump Street) as Captain Duke Hauser, and acting veteran Jonathan Pryce as the American president.
Chu, 32, debuted a new trailer, now available through Machinima, for G.I. Joe: Retaliation at the CinemaCon convention on Monday night in Las Vegas. "I grew up with G.I. Joe," said Chu, reports EW. "I played with all the toys, and I was a little spoiled kid, so I got all my brothers and sisters toys. I would play in the backyard in my sandbox, in the trees, in the couches. And if [a toy's] arm would break off — even better. The story would get more interesting. I'm convinced this is where I learned to tell stories," Chu said.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters on June 29. Watch the new trailer here:
