G.I. Joe Retaliation
Okay so I just saw the new updated version of the trailer for G.I. Joe Retaliation on IMDB. My understanding was that it was delayed because the test audience thought the death of Duke was terrible. So I figured they were going to re-film it with Duke in it. Now I see the trailer, and Duke is still AWOL. The first movie was okay, it grew on me, and I didn’t judge it too harshly because it was an establishing movie in this franchise. But then I see the Rock in the second movie replacing Channing Tatum and that ruins the franchise for me. The Rock makes terrible corny movies, and knowing he’s in G.I. Joe makes me think this movie will also suck. Channing Tatum probably wasn’t my first choice to play Duke, but since he was chosen to play him, I figure let the man be Duke. If Paramount put as much TLC into making G.I. Joe as it did making the Avengers (B-listed super heroes), they would surely have a much bigger payoff.
