Big explosions. Ninja battles on cliff wall faces. Bruce Willis. What more could a person want from the upcoming “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”? Our answer: nothing.

Ever since casting for the sequel to 2009’s “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” started, it was clear this film was going to take a marked turn from its predecessor. There were few returning players, a new action star (Dwayne Johnson) who seemed to be taking front and center, and of course the involvement of Willis. We were a bit curious at what direction “Retaliation” was going to go in and how it was going to juggle all of these new elements, and the trailer answered that question for us pretty resoundingly. “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” just kills off the majority of its previous cast members.

Goodbye Sienna Miller, Rachel Nicols and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and hello Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson and RZA. There are a few returning cast members, like Channing Tatum, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Park and Byung-hun Lee, but it seems like the majority of the new Joe team is new. That includes Willis as Joe founder General Joe Colton, a character that never appeared in the original “Joe” cartoons.

This film might not necessarily end up being “good” per se, but this first teaser released certainly looks like it might be fun. It will be interesting to see Tatum and Johnson face off against one another as Captain Duke Hauser and Roadblock, respectively, but it’s that cliff-face fight sequence that’s really got us hopeful. And there’s your explanation for how director John M. Chu can successfully transition from the “Step Up” films to a blockbuster action movie.

“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” hits theaters on June 29.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
