It's the latest trailer for G.I Joe: Retaliation, the sequel to 2009's G.I Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, this time directed by Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2 The Streets) and written by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Not that (G.I) Joe Public will care about any of that, as this summer movie will instead be sold on the cast: Dwayne "Don't Call Me The Rock Now" Johnson, Bruce Willis (inexplicably), Channing Tatum, alternate universe Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki, Rome's Ray Stevenson, Robert Fitzgerald Diggs (okay, RZA), and Jonathan Pryce. Oh yes, the kids love themselves some Jonathan Pryce.

What do you make of the embedded trailer? Are you a fan of these gigantic summer blockbusters that seem to cater for 14-year-old boys? Is society wrong to sneer at them? Based on the number of action figures they'll sell on the back of this, maybe a better title would be G.I Joe: Retail-iation? Is that a word?
Released: 29 June (US), 2 August (AUS) & 3 August (UK)
