“The world ain’t saving itself,” says The Rock in the new trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
If anyone can save the world, it’s The Rock, who himself seems to have accepted the mission of saving middling movie franchises. (In addition to adding another gear to The Fast and the Furious and starring in Retaliation, he’s set to take over Journey to the Center of the Earth.) Here, he still has plenty of help from holdover Channing Tatum, almost-Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki, and a new squad of sexy and/or sweaty martial-arts acrobats. He’ll need all the help he can get, as Cobra has infested the White House and terminated the elite fighting force, Ghost Protocol style. So it’s good to see Rock and Co. can count on a real American hero. Yippie kay-yay! Take a peek.
