The second theatrical trailer for the action sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation has hit and after watching it I think I have a pretty good idea why franchise star Channing Tatum was all but abscent in the first trailer....
His character Duke is taken out of the action--His fate not revealed here--and that is used as a catalyst to bring in a whole new team of Joes save for Byung-hun Lee.
