New international trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation: watch now

G.I. Joe: Retaliation has released a new international trailer, in which the civilised world finds itself at the mercy of Zartan, Cobra and some weapons of mass destruction that definitely do exist.

The fiendish terrorist has infiltrated the US government, killed all but a handful of the Joes and framed the organisation as a whole for betraying the American people.

Now he boasts to the UN that he is in possession of, "an advanced weapons system capable of destroying each of your countries fourteen times over… and all at the push of a button." Damn.

Take a look at the new trailer below…

Fortunately, The Rock is on hand to make sure Zartan does't have it all his own way, and it isn't long before he's recruited the original Joe (Bruce Willis) to back him up.

If possible, this new trailer contains even more OTT action than the ones that have gone before, and if nothing else, it should certainly be an exciting ride for fans of fighty, explodey goodness.

Directed by Jon M. Chu and co-starring Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson and Jonathan Pryce, G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens in the UK on 3 August 2012.
