If it’s one thing I hate…it’s being teased. Not “Your dick’s so small, you can masturbate through the slits in a fork” kind of teasing, I mean teasing me with footage of a flick I don’t want to be dicked around with. Entertainment Tonight does it to me every-time. On top of their obnoxiously loud TV theme and fart talkin’ hosts, they are notorious for showing 10+ second previews of an exclusive trailer they’re eventually going to show you. And they’ve done it again. This time with Jon Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The video below is a tease of a teaser that will be shown on Monday. The full trailer will be released on Tuesday. In the 18 second clip we see our first look at some actual footage from the movie showing off Bruce Willis as Joe Colton, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock, and Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jay. Check it out below:
The last G.I. Joe movie was a wasted opportunity. I hated it so fucking much. It’s like the makers of the movie were ashamed of embracing what G.I. Joe was. Now, in this preview I can’t judge whether or not the sequel will be any better, but I am cautiously optimistic.
On a side note: Our friends and comicbookmovie got an email tip last night from someone who claims to have worked on the G.I. Joe: Retaliation set who claims that the original Sgt. Slaughter himself (Robert Remus) will be appearing in the G.I. Joe sequel. The source claims that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson came up with the idea for a cameo for his wrestling buddy and that the films producers and director John Chu were all for it. Reportedly, the Joe’s will be on the run from Cobra at some point during the film and Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) states he knows where they can hide out for a while, with the man who trained him to be a Joe. Enter Sgt. Slaughter and the Slaughter House.
Please, oh please let this be true. I’m a huge Sgt. Slaughter and would totally geek the fuck out if I saw him on screen.
