We got to feast our eyes on a full four minutes of footage in a preview screening earlier this week, and it was a real treat. The action is bruising, the stunts spectacular, and the gun-play exhilarating. Willis and Johnson actually look like they`re having fun, and there are freakin` ninjas skating and abseiling down mountains. What`s not to love?!
Even the star of the first film – Channing Tatum – will be back, although this trailer doesn`t give us too many clues about just how big his role will be. He`s become such a big star in the three years since the first movie opened back in 2009 that the studio delayed release (from June 2012) to allow for re-shoots that would beef up Tatum`s role in this sequel.
Check out the preview trailer below – to experience the full four minutes of exclusive footage from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, be sure to catch Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters in cinemas from today!
