G.I. Joe: Retaliation (trailer)

Recall that yesterday I predicted that all Hasbro movies would be Michael Bay movies? Well, here’s another one.

How embarrassing for the world that its “elite fighting force” is actually called “the G.I. Joes.” Whose idea was that? Was there not a single focus group or anything?

And look: I love Bruce Willis, but he has become so much a parody of himself lately that I honestly could not remember whether he appeared in the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and so his reappearance here was a reflection of that — not that reflection is a word that should appear anywhere in the vicinity of these movies — or if it’s just a matter of Hey, lookit! We got Bruce Willis!

It’s the latter, of course.
