Director Jon M. Chu’s (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D) action sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation was building a fair bit of buzz before it was unceremoniously shunted from Paramount Pictures’ 2012 slate just weeks before it was due to hit cinemas. Since then, Retaliation has been all but forgotten and with just over two months to go now until its release, Paramount has moved to remind us that about the film by revealing that a four minute 3D preview will be attached to Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which is out January 25th in North America and February 27th in the UK.
Of course, that’s not much use to you if you’re planning to skip Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, but fortunately a preview of the preview has also been released online, and you can watch it right here…
The sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Retaliation sees the return of Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Lee Byung-hun (Storm Shadow), Arnold Vosloo (Zartan) and Jonathan Pryce (The US President), while new recruits include Dwayne Johnson (Pain & Gain) as Roadblock, Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard) as Colonel Joseph Colton, Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) as Lady Jaye, Elodie Yung (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as Jinx, D.J. Cotrona (Dear John) as Flint, Ray Stevenson (Thor: The Dark World) as Firefly, Stephen Martines (General Hospital) as Cross-Country, RZA (The Man with the Iron Fists) as Blind Master, Eddie Hargitay (The Superagent) as Tunnel Rat, Joseph Mazzello (Jurassic Park) as Mouse and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained) as Warden Nigel James.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is set for release on March 27th.
