Yep, G.I. Joe Retaliation Knows What the Hell It’s Doing

This new trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the most story-oriented trailer so far. Of course, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a shit-ton of action, explosions, military vehicles and ninja fights — it’s just that it also has scenes without those things. Really, the only thing that’s totally absent in this new trailer versus the old trailers is the dubsteb soundtrack, which I think we’re all okay with.

I’ve already said how much I’m looking forward to this film, how The Rock and Bruce Willis are perfect for Joe, how great Cobra Commander looks, how appreciated the vehicles and gun are instead of those ridiculous accelerator suits, and how director Jon M. Chu appears to have knocked it out of the park. So I’m just going to sit back and watch the trailer a few more times. Firefly! Cobra logos! Snake Eyes fucking up ninjas really fucking bad! Man, if Avengers weren’t coming out, this would absolutely be my most anticipated movie of the summer. Thanks to everyone who sent in the tip.
