The G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer barrage continues as Movie Web has posted a pair of G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailers that have hit internationally, and they have some new footage! It’s not considerable, but there is definitely some new stuff included in these trailers below.
Check them out at Movie Web, or embedded video below via YouTube.
Maybe these went up yesterday along with the story by USA Today, but somehow I missed it? Either that, or they just went live today and WOW!! Spectactular. If the concept art is any indication whatsoever of the kind of character design we’ll be getting, this game may already have knocked aside Avengers Alliance as my current addiction.
You can hit up the SyFy site and the Facebook Page to check out a wealth of concept art, and even sign up to play the Beta when it becomes available. So cool! Check out some mirrored images below from the SyFy gallery.
Guys. TRUBBLE BUBBLES. Low Light. AGH!!
This looks SO COOL. If this is truly a tactics game along the lines of Final Fantasy Tactics, or G.I. Joe: Renegades Tactics, then I will be so in love with this. Very cool.
Even though I feel very honored to have a couple GeneralsJoes fans who took the time and energy to write up reports for the site based on what they’ve seen from new footage, I also wanted to look elsewhere as well, just to get an idea about the feedback that other sites were providing as well.
You can check out the GeneralsJoes reports by Dave Tree and Russ Sheath, and also hit up the What’s on Joe Mind Special Edition, but then hit up a few of the links below.
Obviously there are a ton of other links out there, but I figured this would at least get folks started. The short answer is there seems to be a LOT of love for this film even outside the hardcore Joe fans or hardcore geek circles. Hopefully the positive buzz keeps roaring all the way through the end of June!
Looks like a double decker at comic shops this week as Wednesday brings us both the conclusion for the G.I. Joe: Retaliation prequel series and Issue #12 of the ongoing Snake Eyes series which kicks off his new adventures apart from the G.I. Joe team!
Check out the previews for both of these issues below, one sale at comic shops everywhere on Wednesday.

COBRA COMMAND AFTERMATH! The most dangerous Joe is presumed K.I.A.—but we know different! SNAKE EYES returns to the HARD MASTER to deliver some shocking news as only the silent JOE can. But someone SNAKE EYES cares deeply about has been harmed and someone else is going to have to pay for that. It’s ninja action in the urban jungle and plenty of new surprises!

In the aftermath of COBRA COMMAND, everything changes!
Oh no, I’m not done yet! If I’m going to be up this damn early watching a trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I’m doing it whole hog. I went through the entire trailer and pulled out as many new screen grabs as I could find.
I didn’t bother re-capturing most of the stuff we’ve already seen, I wanted to focus on the captures that were new in this particular trailer. There were plenty! See Firefly in his awesome balaclava…see the HISS Tanks rolling down the streets of Washington. See Jinx in a red ninja mask for the first time!
More and more good stuff. Check out the gallery below, but most importantly, check out the trailer!!
As an unexpected special surprise along with the huge trailer launch tonight, we were directed to a website for Cobra Special Forces. This interactive site presented us with a couple of simple tests that you could take to determine your ranking.
The site then gives you a rank and redirects you to a Facebook page where you can “await your next assignment”… hmmm… sounds like something more is coming. But what? Guess we’ll have to find out!
With thanks to Machinima, we have a brand spanking new G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer! Boo YA!
We knew it was coming, we were ready for it…but could we really be totally prepared for the awesomeness it would bestow upon us? HISS Tanks rolling upon Washington, DC? Firefly, Cobra Commander, Roadblock, and Snake Eyes oozing awesomeness from every pore?
June 29th, I’m ready and waiting for you! Let’s do this.
As you may have guessed from the flood of content all hitting simultaneously, there have been some G.I. Joe: Retaliation footage screening events over the past couple of weeks, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be in contact with a few people who got a chance to attend these events. The only hitch? Any talking about these events was embargoed until 8:00am Greenwich Mean Time. That’s 3:00am Eastern and 12:00 midnight Pacific to us over here in the United States.
Now not only did the always awesome Russ Sheath and Dave Tree write up some very detailed and very extensive reports on these screenings, but Dave also stayed up until all hours of the UK night to talk to us on What’s on Joe Mind about what he saw! He gets into full details, and lets us interrogate him in true What’s on Joe Mind fashion to get to the bottom of G.I. Joe: Retaliation as we come within two months of the film’s release.
Gary, being the consummate professional that he is, got the editing turned around in lightning fast time and we have a very Special Edition of the What’s on Joe Mind podcast in the can and ready to go! Check it out as always on our Podbean page, or hit up the embedded player below.
