First footage from G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation online

In what's becoming an alarming Hollywood trend, the trailer for the trailer of G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation has landed online.

The 18-second clip doesn't give a huge amount away (surprisingly), but it does play up the sequel's strongest assets - namely Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.

In fact, Ray Park's Snake Eyes is the only character from the original that you'll see here, as Channing Tatum's Duke doesn't even get a look in.

Johnson brings all the machine-gun wielding muscle you've come to expect from him, and fellow bald action icon Bruce Willis looks to be getting stuck into the rough stuff too, rather than sitting it out in a supervisory role.

G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation opens on 22 June 2012, and a complete trailer will arrive tomorrow.
