Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson open up the latest international trailer for the rejiggered G.I. Joe Retaliation movie that hits next March, and I’m sure the studios is hoping that everyone forgets that it was yanked one month before it was due to hit theaters after testing didn’t quite go so well. Check out the new with lots of already used footage from the other trailers below.
Naturally, people are mentioning that Channing Tatum isn’t in much of the latest international trailer for the rejiggered G.I. Joe Retaliation, but you have to remember that this is an international trailer that’s recycled mostly footage we already saw in the big marketing push from last year. This just makes the story a little more understandable, but you can be sure that you’ll be seeing more more Tatum now that’s become a qualified star in action and Nicholas Sparks types movies.
G.I. Joe Retaliation was up against a big action heavy summer this year, and after Taylor Kitsch’s Battleship sank quickly, Paramount quickly hit the brake on this film a month before it hit theaters. That’s a costly change since they’re turning this into a 3D movie and then having to re-market the film. Putting it into a March 29, 2013 slot is smart and with Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis’ name attached with Tatum’s, it’ll easily make some money. Is it me or does Adrianne Palicki’s name attached to anything seem like a kiss of death lately?
