After a nine month delay that moved it from its prime June 2012 release date, fans will finally be able to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation this weekend and find out if it improved on 2009's disappointing G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Initial trailers for the movie capitalized on the inclusion of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis as Roadblock and General Joe Colton, respectively, but as opening day has drawn near, the promotional focus has turned to Johnson and rising star Channing Tatum, who played Duke in Rise of Cobra but whose role seemed clearly diminished in the sequel's trailers.
Whether more Tatum has been added to the movie is unknown, though the final trailer focuses almost solely on the friendship of Duke and Roadblock, starting with Johnson schooling Tatum on how to play a game on the XBOX.
