'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Featurette & a Pair of International Posters

Today is Bruce Willis's 58th birthday, so naturally we have a little nugget for Bruno fans in the form of an international poster for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which features Willis as retired General Joe Colton, the man who formed the Joe squad.

We also have treats for anyone concerned with more musclebound leading men.  We have one other international poster that showcases Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, as well as a new G.I. Joe: Retaliation featurette focused on Channing Tatum as Duke.

One of the few castmembers to return from Stephen Sommers's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Tatum has previously said that he felt Retaliation should have gone the full reboot route. 

Instead, Paramount opted to make a soft-reboot, with a small contractually obligated appearance from Tatum.  When the studio unexpectedly delayed the sequel by nine months not much more than a month from its hyped release date, one unconfirmed explanation involved Tatum.  A bright spot in reportedly unfortunate test screenings was the relationship between Roadblock and Duke, so part of those nine months was said to to be devoted to additional photography beefing up Tatum's role however possible.

Even still, this new featurette courtesy of Moviefone creates the distinct impression that Tatum is only involved in one action sequence and a few scenes.  One scene involving Roadblock and Duke playfully practicing as marksmen with a little birthday cupcake (not for Willis) makes up a good chunk of the featurette, while a talking head interview with Tatum takes up most of the rest between actiony bits.

And now for the international posters with character who have nary a hair on their heads.  A gentleman by the name of Mike Markus sent these in to SuperHero Hype and Coming Soon
