Coming off Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, director Jon M. Chu is making the natural next step in his career and directing a sequel to Stephen Sommers‘ G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. Kidding aside, this actually looks to be a perfect fit for the man who was able to make dancing exciting in the Step Up series.
It looks like he is also able to stage a proper action scene in the first trailer for G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation. Judging by just this piece, it looks like Dwayne Johnson is stepping in as our lead for Channing Tatum, who has barely a line here. And of course Bruce Willis has to be in this with his cringe-worthy “I’m too old for this sh*t, but I’m still doing it!” shtick.
All I ask from this film is that it has a sense of fun Sommers showed for a brief second during the car chase in his film. And it looks to have that, especially in a mountain-side cliff fight scene. We also have a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, so there is some promise there. Check out the trailer below for the film also starring Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, RZA, Joseph Mazzello, Elodie Yung and Walton Goggins.
The G.I. Joe team faces off against Zartan, his accomplices, and the world leaders he has under his influence.
