Fierce box office competition, 3D reshoots, and rewrites to expand Channing Tatum's part caused G.I. Joe: Retaliation's June 2012 release date to be pushed back, but it looks like that time may have been used wisely. The original trailer came out around this time last year, but the new preview feels way more badass than the first one. The G.I. Joe task force — headed by Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock — has been declared traitorous and left for dead. The president himself signed off on the order to abandon the team, except he's not really the president; he's some kind of crazed nuclear war genius hiding in the president's skin (science!). It's up to the G.I. Joes to save the world, even though they've been betrayed by their own country.
Give me Bruce Willis in a high-octane action flick and I'm there. I hope that his role is significant because even though Tatum (who starred in 2009's original G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) is supposedly playing a bigger part, it still doesn't look like he's got much screen time. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is set for release on March 29 (for real this time), but you can watch the trailer after the jump.
