Let’s be clear about something right off the bat. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra¬†was a terrible, terrible movie. When the best thing going for you is Channing Tatum’s acting, you know something is wrong. Well…looks like Hollywood won’t give up on the series and decided to make some huge changes for its sequel. For one — it replaced director Stephen Somers (The Mummy) with Jon Chu (Step Up). How that is an upgrade or even a lateral move, I’m not sure. But may be Chu’s familiarity with working with Tatum will offer some awesome dance sequences? I don’ t know. Another way they changed it up this time around is casting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock, this after recharging the Fast and the Furious¬†series. O yea, and they signed recent paycheck-hoarder Bruce Willis. All in all, I’m cautiously optimistic, and the trailer doesn’t look half bad. G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation opens June 29, 2012.
