‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Featurettes Focus on Ninjas and Bruce Willis
We’re less than a month away from the release of ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ (unless Paramount decides to bump it once again), so we’re now pretty close to seeing this long-delayed project. One thing that’s been annoying about the delay is that they haven’t offered much new footage since the trailers that debuted over a year ago. So, to get a better taste of the movie, these two new featurettes on the movie offer a little more.
Perhaps the best addition is the voice of RZA, who has a role in the film, but hasn’t been seen much of so far. With this technique, either they’re hiding a lot of the movie from us (which is good), or they only have so many money shots (not so good). These two featurettes focus on Byung-hun Lee’s Storm Shadow and Bruce Willis’ Joe Colton, and you can listen to Willis ramble on about how he played with the toys when he was a kid. Maybe they’ll make a Joe Colton toy, and Bruce Willis can play with himself.
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonventura and Brian Goldner, from screenplay by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I Joe characters.
