WATCH: GI Joe new trailer to play before Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters plus new clip of ninja fight

We’re still unsure how to feel about GI Joe: Retaliation to be honest.

Personally I thought the first one was pretty damned awful, but there seems to be a lot of cultish love for it now. And this sequel has yet to impress me visually, but it certainly does seem to be a lot of fun and I can’t help feeling a little giddy at the prospect of Dwayne ‘The Rock’  Johnson and Bruce Willis kicking Cobra’s ass, so we’ll reserve judgement until we’ve eaten chocolate and popcorn in the front row. On opening night.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
