G.I. Joe 2: Will it Retaliate at the box office?

  There are two reasons: Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson.
  The Rock has become even more famous in Hollywood after critics applauded his performance in Fast Five wholeheartedly. Ever since then he has been termed as the modern action star. I also liked his performance in Faster 2010 and the movie was fun to watch. I'm hoping he would stick to only action roles and not play a tooth fairy again. Can't say anything for his latest release Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. I may not be watching that but if I do I will write a review for sure. 
  The first part was good 2.5/4 from me. The movie contained the action and humour element  successfully side by side. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra grossed an impressive $302,469,017 on a $175,000,000 budget.
  I will also enjoy Bruce Willis's role in The Expendables 2 later this August. G.I. Joe 2 is being directed by John M. Chu best known for Step Up 2 and 3. So maybe he's as good in choreographing action scenes as he is in dance moves. I have to say that the trailer for it is the best summer blockbuster trailer I've seen along with The Dark Knight Rises.
  G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer:
  G.I. Joe: Retaliation is slated for a June 29 release in the US and 22 June in the UK. No prediction as I'm not aware of the budget. But it does have the potential to out-gross its predecessor.

Exactly my friend. Will be one of the best action movies of the year along with The Dark Knight Rises and The Expendables 2. Can't say much for The Avengers the trailer was dull and the villains confirmed that. They should've enlisted Wolverine for the movie.
