New ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ International Trailer: How Many Ninjas is too Many?
A new international trailer and TV spot for the long-delayed/eagerly anticipated ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ have appeared online and you can watch them below…but first, let’s address the question asked in the headline at the top of this article. The answer is that there is never too many ninjas. Ever. Especially when they’re sword fighting while rappelling off the side of a mountain. And there seem to be a lot of ninjas in this movie.
Although both clips recycle footage we’ve seen in past trailers (that motorcycle missile is the kind of thing that never gets old), there’s a significant amount of time spent with Storm Shadow, probably because Lee Byung-Hun is a massive star in Asia and these particular trailers are intended for overseas audiences. However, if you’re not a fan of his (and you really should go see ‘I Saw the Devil’ and become one) there’s plenty to keep you interested, including some new Bruce Willis action and a fun exchange between Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum.
A tip of the hat to Generals Joes for bringing these to our attention. ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ finally opens on March 29th, when we’ll finally learn if those delays were spent fixing the movie or simply delaying a disaster.
