Wow the first trailer for Jon Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been released and it actually looks kind of awesome?! Most of the original cast is gone and for a good reason, the trailer starts with the G.I. Joe team getting slaughtered except for a few survivors that include Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona, and Bruce Willis.
From this first look, this cast is a huge improvement and the trailer promises an action-packed movie with some really cool stunts. This definitely has a much cooler vibe than the previous installment, thanks in part to the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” being used in the preview to great effect.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens June 29th, 2012. Check out the trailer, courtesy of Machinima:
