This trailer wasn't as good as the previous ones.  I think part of it was the music kennynine stated.  The first trailer used the Glitchmob remix to the White Stripes Seven Nation Army.  That song in and of itself can hold a trailer by itself.  The GI Joe rap they used is about on par with the Ninja Rap that Vanilla Ice made for TMNT II: Secret of the Ooze.

I think part of the problem is the suits in Hollywood see this as a generating from a kids toy, so they feel it should be cheesy and not taken seriously.  I think they should have used the template from the GI Joe Resolute that aired on Adult Swim some years back and toned down the cheese.

The scale of the movies might be a bit too much too.  I think they tried to bite off more than they could chew in the first movie.  Maybe they should have started smaller and tried to make it more like the Dirty Dozen.  IDK, just some thoughts.

I agree, the music for this trailer sucks balls. Now, IMO, GI Joe the first movie is in my top 3 as one of the worst movies ever made in the history of movies. Channing Tatum is not a good actor and is not the right choice for Duke.

For this new movie, there is some faint, small, minuscule hope that it could be better then the first one and I'm putting my faith for Dwayne Johnson and only him. Knowing that Duke was dying early in the movie was one of the great reason to see the 2nd one but now if the rumours are true that Tatum stays alive longer....it smells dooms already.

I'm sure many will give it a chance but let's be honest, this movie has bad rep from the get go so expectations should not be high.

I was never a fan of the toys, cartoons, or the last movie so this is just what it is to me. I won't see it in the theater but will wait til it hits cable. Looks to be fun.

The shit about Tatum is totally true, his rising star early last year made the producers panic and pull the film from release knowing that killing him after he became so popular would tank the film for the audience they are catering to.  He had what amounted to a cameo in the original cut, now he is an equal headliner with Dwayne J. and Bruce.  I have an inside scoop on this one, it's absolutely true, these things happen quite often, not to such high profile summer movies but it happens.  Apparantly it shifted to the tone of the film from dark revenge/rogue agent to a more fun and satirical, the director had little to do with the reshoots and if it wasn't for contracts that make people STFU, we'd be hearing all about how angry he was about the whole thing.  This movie was hijacked, straight up, and it'll be a miracle if it doesn't come out a complete disaster.

wish...if that is true...then I won't be seeing this piece of crap....stupid Tatum...

wish, I wonder if years from now if this is the case, if we will get a director's cut of the mvoie that shows which is better.  I feel like that usually only happens for the bigger directors though, & the director of this movie was making dance movies before so I'm not sure how well that will work out.

 I think it looks fun!

Still wish the marketing team would have promoted the film as "From the Director of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" somewhere in the trailer.  Have a sense of humor, guys.
