Paramount Pictures has just released a new TV spot for the upcoming action thriller G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation, which is set to open next month. Directed by Jon Chu, the movie revolves around G.I. Joes who are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra but are also forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.
Chu directed the movie from a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and as we previously reported the film cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce and Ray Stevenson.
The film will feature the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow and Firefly, all serving under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is still impersonating the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors to the United States, exterminating most of them and leaving a small group of survivors. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra’s control, with their advanced warheads aimed at innocent populaces around the world. Badly beaten, outnumbered and outgunned, the Joes make a desperate plan to overthrow Cobra Commander and take back the world, with their secret black operation called the “Second American Revolution”, which involves the return of the original G.I. Joe General Joseph Colton.
G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation opens on March 29th, 2013.
