Make way for some new real American heroes.
Channing Tatum survived the first rumble only to be betrayed by evil operatives from his own government in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Lucky for him, he’s got Friday Night Lights‘ Adrianne Palicki and can’t-help-but-be-badass Dwayne Johnson as his partners in camo and special-ops skill.
With a menacing, video game-ready version of the White Stripes‘ “Seven Nation Army” thumping in the background, the Joes show off their adeptness with machine guns, hand-to-hand combat and swordplay—all fashioned this time around by director Jon Chu—in this spankin’ new trailer.
But Paramount Pictures waits until the explosive teaser’s final seconds to introduce the combat veteran who’s going to prove key to helping our nation’s most elite soldiers out of this mess…
“My cholesterol’s a little high,” quips Bruce Willis‘ grizzled warrior Joe Colton when Palicki’s Lady Jaye asks if he’s all right after he mows down a few bad guys from the back of a speeding car.
Joining Tatum in the original fold, Ray Park returns as Snake Eyes and Jonathan Pryce is back as “U.S. President.” Newcomers to the franchise include RZA, Joseph Mazzello and Ray Stevenson.
The sequel comes out firing on June 29, 2012.
