'G.I. Joe' Retaliation Trailer: Now With More Channing Tatum!Mike Sampson |
'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was abruptly pushed back to 2013 last summer just weeks before it was set to hit theaters. But now, after some reshoots and a 3D conversion, the Joes are ready for the big screen and have a new trailer to prove it. So is this an improvement? Watch the new 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' trailer and find out.
While the company line was that 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was pushed back because they wanted to give the film a 3D conversion, most people assumed it was pushed back because it sucked. Or more-to-the-point, people were disappointed because Channing Tatum - who became a huge star during filming of the 'G.I. Joe' sequel - isn't in the film all that much. So reshoots and re-edits were ordered to give the world more Tatum.
But did it work?
All that said, this doesn't look that bad. The blowing up of London seems a little extreme and reminiscent of the ridiculous Paris attack from the first film, but otherwise, this could be just the kick in the pants the 'G.I. Joe' franchise needed.
