This weekend Paramount added a special four minute look at the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation to 3D screenings of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. A low-quality version of the preview has made its way online. The preview footage, which is part of a longer ten-minute Himalaya action sequence, is partially inspired by the classic 1984 story “Silent Interlude” from the G.I. Joe comics and is told entirely without spoken dialogue. If the rest of the movie is anything like this scene, it looks like we’re definitely going to be getting a great G. I. Joe film.
A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA, which grossed over $300M worldwide, Paramount Pictures, MGM and Skydance Productions, in association with HASBRO and di Bonaventura Pictures, commences production on G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation rolls out into theaters March 29th.
