Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain' has just released a red-band NSFW trailer, and it shows something we already knew about the film: It was going to be a bit brutal. It's been almost a year since we first saw a picture of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson barbequing a hand, but that appears to be only one part of the demented goings on in the film, as evinced by this new trailer.
'Star Wars Episode 7' has incited all kinds of reactions across Hollywood. For every actor or filmmaker who expresses excitement in the project, you'll find another who won't touch it with a ten foot pole. However, just because someone wants to be in the new 'Star Wars' doesn't necessarily mean that they'll mesh with that universe. So, how do we react when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says that he'd love to journey to that long ago, far away galaxy?
Sure, 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' may feature tons of big, explosive action, but a newly spot has us more interested in the dynamic between Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum, who come off like a well-honed comedy team instead of American super soldiers. Can this movie be as funny as it is exciting? We certainly hope so. See for yourself below.
In what amounts to the smallest film in Michael Bay's oversized career, we can't wait to see his 'Pain and Gain' for so many reasons. For one, there's Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson paired together, for another we're curious to see what Michael Bay will do with the source material (which, if you haven't read the article it's based on, you should). This new TV spot plays up the goofiness, which is interesting.
The big selling point in all of the trailers for 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' so far has been the action. Ninja action. Tanks action. Motorcycle-turning-into-a-missile action. However, this new clip takes a step away from all of the explosions and carnage and offers a look at stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Channing Tatum, who get a chance to engage in some surprisingly funny banter.
We're excited for 'Fast and Furious 6' - very excited. (Seriously, did you see that trailer?) But one movie that could get us just as excited, if not more, than 'Fast and Furious 6' would be a spinoff starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his Hobbs character. And it just so happens that The Rock says that such a movie is something they're planning.
A new international trailer and TV spot for the long-delayed/eagerly anticipated 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' have appeared online and you can watch them below...but first, let's address the question asked in the headline at the top of this article. The answer is that there is never too many ninjas. Ever. Especially when they're sword fighting while rappelling off the side of a mountain. And there seem to be a lot of ninjas in this movie.
Dwayne Johnson has got a busy 2013. 'Snitch' is his first film of the year, which will be followed by 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation,' then 'Pain and Gain,' and finally this summer's 'Fast Six.' And though 'Snitch' might be the least interesting of the four, it's got a good hook, as the latest trailer emphasizes.
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.
