MUST-WATCH First “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” Trailer Drops, and Explodes
Take a deep breath at the beginning of this first trailer for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” because you won’t exhale until the end. In the first minute we get a clear and badass delivery of the film’s premise. The U.S. President, an unlikely bad guy, played by a menacing Jonathan Pryce, orders the termination of the world’s elite fighting force, the G.I. Joes. But a few survived, one of whom, unfortunately for the bad guys, is the aptly named, Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson). What follows is an onslaught of jaw-dropping action over a digitized, base-heavy version of The White Stripe’s “Seven Nation Army.” On the edge of your seat, you’ll think it’s all over, then the post-title-card beat knocks you off it. But you’ll hit the ground laughing. I knew “G.I. Joe” could save the world, now I know they can also cut one kickass action trailer. Bravo!
