Although it was never likely to be worse than 2009’s brainless original, GI Joe: Retaliation actually does look a hell of a lot better. Machinima have the first trailer, which showcases the new cast, as well as a couple of promising action set-pieces.

Taking the plot almost directly from Mission Impossible 4, the sequel shows the elite fighters framed by a corrupt government, leading the world to believe that they are the bad guys. Of course, they set out to clear their names, and the real star of the show, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, gets ample opportunity to bring it.

Also featuring an amusing appearance from Bruce Willis, this promo does paint a picture of an entertaining action romp, with the cliff-face battle looking particularly intense. Although the world may not have exactly been screaming out for a GI Joe sequel, it looks as though we are getting something a little more promising than expected.
