    G. I. Joe Retaliation

    I don't know if there is a tread covering this movie. The trailer is out now. Generalsjoes.com has it posted.

    Trailer spoilers below:












    It looks like they tried to keep it more on line with established comic canon and established identities (notice rattlers and water moccasin). Oh and Cobra Commander looks like himself.

    Looks way better than the first one. Hopefully the rumors of a Sgt. Slaughter cameo are true. I'd shell out the $8 just to see the Sarge on the big screen, especially if it leads to getting us a new Slaughter figure in retail stores.

    Here It Is

    I really, really hope that is Cobra Commander and not just a generic Viper. That helmet is pretty perfect. The helmet looks a bit too grandiose for a normal Viper, so here’s hoping that it is the good Commander. Everything looks better, particularly Snake Eyes. Even from that little snippet this looks 100 times more G.I. Joe than the first film did.

    Who would have thought the Step UP 3D director had it in him?

    I know. That shot in the trailer just gave me goosebumps. This is shaping up nicely, methinks.

    Who's Bruce Willis's character?

    According to Wikipedia, he is Joe Colton, the original GI Joe.

    Who was the yellow ninja? Looked like it might be female, so possibly Jinx, but I'm not used to her wearing yellow.

    As I always preface,I'm not a big Joe fan, but I like how this looks, Duke possibly dead I'm in! that's what got me excited about the cobra-la movie, for some reason I always hated duke. and the Rock kicking ass, again I'm in! lipless snake eyes, I'm in! so that's already a 3 star review! Cobra Commander with his proper face mask, a great bonus, I loved the design of that character!

    I would love it if Roadblock did at LEAST ONE rhyme. just for a throwback.

    Snake Eyes doesn't appear to be present when Roadblock says "we're all that's left," either, so I guess it's possible Duke survives, too. It's also possible that the line is taken from another scene and played over the footage of the three soldiers and is out of context.

    Regardless of whether or not Duke bites it, it looks like the focus will be on Snake Eyes and a new group of Joes for the bulk of the film, and I think that is a good thing. The Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow subplot is the only thing from the first movie I'm interested in seeing continue into the next one.

    From reading the article, I guess the writer thought the movie was so bad that Paramount decided to push it back. For G.I. Joe, it means a years' worth of momentum lost. No movie and no cartoon. Hasbro canceled Renegades to focus on this new movie... Nothing is out there except the Collector's Club figures and the IDW comics.

    LOL! I mentioned the Rock because he's been promoting this movie like crazy through interviews, videos, facebook and tweets. I see a new promotion video almost every month. Paramount pulled the rug out from under him.

    I wonder if it got bad reaction with test audiences?

    Either that or they're terrified of a John Carter or Battleship box office opening.

    I'm thinking they are paranoid of a Battle Ship like failure. I hate to judge a movie off of the trailer, but this one looked pretty fantastic. So much better than the last.

    Well, with the line up this summer I can't blame them. When you have a movie like Avengers drawing sales away from movies like BattleShip and Dark Shadows for this many weeks, they had to have known that they weren't going to be able to cut it. The first movie, while I enjoyed it, was trashed by critics and a lot of die hard Joe fans so I'm sure they had to take that into consideration. Or maybe two Channing Tatum movies was two much for the same day. I mean most of his fans are female and they'd probably rather see him as a stripper..........

    This whole situation is a disaster. Too many execs in the kitchen.

    They have over 100 issues of some of the best stories in comics at their disposal (the Hama Marvel run) and they want to reinvent the wheel every time.

    If the story and visuals are good, no one would bat an eyelash that Tatum wasn't in the movie. Ugh, he and his Ebonics speak was THE worst part of that terrible first movie.
