Sneak Peek For The G.I. Joe Retaliation Trailer Features The Rock, Bruce Willis, And Snake Eyes

If you want to an early glimpse of the upcoming new G.I. Joe film Retaliation, you may be required to listen to Entertainment Tonight’s enthusiastic and occasionally barely on-topic chatter in order to get it. That's mainly a reference to the ET segment that aired early last month, in which the entertainment news program offered a few glimpses of the film from the New Orleans set. This included friendly banter with The Rock about Justin Bieber, whose ties to the movie appear to only be through the director Jon M. Chu, whose most recent directing credit before taking on the G.I. Joe sequel was Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. Still, the connection is there and any excuse to talk about Bieber... right?

There doesn’t appear to be any Bieber chatter in this promo for tonight’s episode of ET, which will feature the premiere of the trailer for the film, however this is just a teaser, after all. Who knows what will be bantered about when the full segment airs?

Putting aside ET’s helpful narration, we do actually get a few quick glimpses at G.I. Joe: Retaliation, including a brief look at Snake Eyes (Ray Park), sword in hand. Also featured briefly are Adrianne Palicki, Bruce Willis and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. There’s also shooting and stuff blowing up, which I expect we'll see more of when this trailer premieres during tonight's episode of Entertainment Tonight (Monday, December 12th).

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is expected to release in theaters on June 29, 2012.
