I’m writing today from Las Vegas, where I’m currently attending CinemaCon (not to be confused with Comic Con) — a gathering of movie theatre exhibitors which was formerly known as ShoWest. On Sunday I got the chance to preview five minutes of footage from Jon Chu‘s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, in addition to the new trailer which has just been launched online (see separate post). After the jump you can watch a video blog I recorded with Alex from FirstShowing and Frosty from Collider reacting to the footage that screened in Vegas.
