Super Joe

Here's the Super Bowl trailer for this summer's upcoming sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation. I was feeling pretty good about this one after seeing the teaser trailer in December, and the good vibes continue with this assemblage. And considering how underwhelmed I was by the Super Bowl spot for the first Joe in '09, I consider that a very good sign:

Seriously? I can't say there's anything about this trailer that grabs me, but I haven't seen the first one so maybe that's why. Still, I would have liked to see more of a hardcore rated-R Tarantino type of take on GI-Joe instead of what looks like standard blockbuster explosions and silly dialogue. But we'll see...

Well, given that JOE is still a toy-based property, you know they're never gonna do the hard "R" thing with it. Too much money and too many parent groups involved. Personally, what I want is a flick that preserves the heart of what the Marvel Comics run did, while not dumbing down and playing to the cheap seats. That's why I didn't like movie one, but why I'm holding out hope based on what I see of movie two.
