In two months, G. I. Joe: Retaliation lands in theaters and Paramount is doing its best to motivate fans. A few trailers have already been released, but the new minute-and-a-half spot-fest shows a bit more fun worth anticipating. The end of the trailer also promises a full four-minute 3D trailer before Hansel and Gretel 3D, but even Jeremy Renner doesn’t seem to want to see that movie, so watching this seems like the best bet.
Some of the footage we’ve seen already, but there’s some good new shots. They’re really pushing the ninjas, The Rock and Bruce Willis. That’s okay, because I like ninjas, The Rock and Bruce Willis. Hopefully, I’ll like this movie, too. I’m almost guaranteed to like it more than the last one.
G. I. Joe: Retaliation will be released for one week on IMAX 3D. According to the press release:
IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX; TSX:IMX) and Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB), Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) and Skydance Productions, in association with Hasbro, today announced that G.I.
