Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer presents the trailer of ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ a sci-fi action film based on the Hasbro’s G.I. Joe toys franchise.

Directed by Jon M. Chu of the ‘Step Up 2: The Streets’ and ‘Step Up 3D’ fame, ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ is a sequel to 2009’s rather disappointing ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’ directed by Stephen Sommers.

With ‘Zombieland’ (2009) duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s penmanship, the film stars Bruce Willis, Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Arnold Vosloo, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, and Lee Byung-hun. New entrants to the franchise are D.J. Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki and Ray Stevenson.

‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ takes off from where the first part of the series ends. Zartan (Arnold Vosloo) infiltrates the White House impersonating the President (Jonathan Pryce). The fake President assigns the Cobras to replace the Joes on a war to rule the world.

The betrayed Joes are left with no one to trust but General Joseph Colton (Bruce Willis). Thus begins the mission packed with hard-core stunts.

Thanks to the amazing special effects, picking one favorite scene from the film may turn out to be impossible. Most enticing within the trailer, is the “ninja battle” in the mountains of Himalayas which ensues when Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and his apprentice Jinx (Elodie Yung), try to attack Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun).

If you are a 3D action film lover, this one’s for you!

Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner’s ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ is all set to hit Indian screens on 29 March, 2013.
