Although the cast includes Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis, the second full-length trailer for Jon Chu‘s G.I. Joe: Retaliation has made it abundantly clear that Dwayne Johnson is the lead in this action blockbuster. This piece expands the story, introducing the presidential angle, as well as more of that ninja fighting scene on the end. Chu is talented at creating high-energy films, so here’s hoping he has crafted a fast-paced, entertaining summer popcorn ride. The director recently sat down with Collider, where he revealed one of the ninja scenes will actually last about ten minutes and contain no dialogue. With that aspect being one of the many poor qualities in Stephen Sommers‘ film, at least he’s on his way to getting that aspect right. Check out the new trailer below via Machinima for the film also starring D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA and Ray Stevenson.
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.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters on June 29th, 2012.
