Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Wasn't a huge fan of the first GI Joe to be honest, but now that I'm a recent Channing Tatum convert thanks to 21 Jump Street I was looking forward to seeing him play around with his newfound sense of screen presence only to watch the trailer for GI Joe 2 and see that The Rock seems to have taken over the Joes.
Well, I like The Rock, so that's not a huge disappointment, but still. Hope they're using him to hook in the Fast and Furious audience because the idea of Tatum and Dwayne throwing good-hearted barbs at each other the whole movie isn't a bad one.
Still, I watch the trailer and I wonder if ladies look at this kind of this the exact same way I do every Nicholas Sparks adaptation. "This looks just like every other Nicholas Sparks movie! He just scribbled a slightly different scenario and changed nothing else!"
Are guys hardwired to like watching cities crumble, ninjas fight and The Rock be all alpha male? Because as much as I want to make fun of this trailer a part of me really wants to watch it. I suppose that makes me no worse than the Twilight crowd.
Anyway, here's the trailer. Feast your eyeballs on evil president Sam Lowry, Bruce Willis as the ringer and the sequence I've already come to think of as "fuck you, London."
