Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
The sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Retaliation features the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan (Arnold Vosloo), Storm Shadow and Firefly (Ray Stevenson) all serving under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is last seen in disguise as the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors and wipes most of them out in a sneak attack, leaving only Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Flint, and Lady Jaye. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra's control, with warheads headed towards innocent populaces. Badly beaten, out numbered, and outgunned the Joes make a desperate plan to expose the truth and stop Cobra from taking over the world. Starring Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock and Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye.

Paramount has greenlit 'G.I. Joe 3'.

The movie studio has ordered a follow-up to the action blockbuster starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Adrianne Palicki following the global success of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' upon its release last week, according to Variety.

The second movie in the franchise topped the US box office over the weekend taking in $41.2 million, and it also earned a worldwide total of $132 million in just five days.

The action flick's release was delayed by a year in order to convert the movie to 3D, and it's rumoured that producers wanted to film more scenes with Channing Tatum - who briefly reprised his role as Captain Duke Hauser from 2009's 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' - following his success in movies such as '21 Jump Street' and 'Magic Mike'.

Predecessor 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' was critically panned and failed to meet box office expectations, resulting in Paramount partially rebooting the franchise for the sequel.

Director Jon M. Chu recently revealed he would love to film a third movie and would ''take it to the next level''.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''You know, it would be an honour [to do it], if fans went out to see it [this time]. And man I'd love to [make another one]. We have a lot of foundation with the characters here, so it would be really fun to take to the next level.''
