Last week it was G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the sequel that doesn’t look like a sequel to the 2009 box-office success, but poorly received first film.

Set to hit theaters on June 29, the new film centers on the G.I. Joe group as they have but presumably wiped out by the President of the United States, but as it turns out the terrorist organization known as Cobra has infiltrated the American government and are up to some very naughty behavior.

The film could be good, though it would be hard to be as disappointing as the first film with its Transformers suits, sinking ice and underwater fortresses. Have a look at the new trailer and let me know what you think.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation stars Channing Tatum as Duke, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow, Elodie Yung as Jinx, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, Bruce Willis as Joe Colton and it’s rumored, though unconfirmed, that Faran Tahir is playing Cobra Commander.

Also, Ray Stevenson stars as Firefly, Walton Goggins will play Warden Nigel James, Arnold Vosloo plays Zartan, RZA will play the Blind Master and D.J. Cotrona plays Flint with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and Jon M. Chu directing.
