Channing Tatum (l.) and Dwayne Johnson get ready to rumble in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Dwayne Johnson (Faster) and Channing Tatum (Haywire) provide the macho posturing in the science fiction-flavored action adventure film G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

In this sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.

The movie was directed by Jon M. Chu and also features Bruce Willis (Looper), Adrianne Palicki (Legion) and Jonathan Pryce (Brazil).
