In case you missed it from all those trailers and TV spots you’ve been seeing of Jon Chu’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, The Rock’s Roadblock and Channing Tatum’s Duke are buddies. Best buds. BFFs, if you will. That means we get scenes like this, where the two bond over kids, panties, and shooting cupcakes. Hey, you can totally get away with this stuff if you have enough ammo.
Every time I see Tatum in a scene from “Retaliation”, I always wonder, “Is this one of the new scenes they added in to capitalize on Tatum’s current popularity?” A Blu-ray where Chu talks candidly about these new scenes would be a very interesting listen…
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.
Besides C-Tate and his buddy The Rock, “Retaliation” also stars Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, Ray Park, Joseph Mazzello, Arnold Vosloo, Elodie Yung, Walton Goggins, Jonathan Pryce, Byung-hun Lee, RZA, D.J. Cotrona, and Matt Gerald.
Shooting it out this March 28, 2013.
