Remember that G.I. Joe sequel that was supposed to come out seemingly forever ago? Well, it's back, and we've got the latest trailer just for you. Let's find out what's changed about the delayed film together, shall we?

The official answer as to why Joe went from a 2012 summer release to the far-less-exciting March of 2013 is "increased 3D effects." Okay, yes, we can see how 3D is a good thing. Explosions, ninjas, Bruce Willis ... all of the above are better if they're flying off the screen, but is that really all this is about?

Considering that Channing Tatum (who was supposed to be killed off for the sequel) appears right at the start of the trailer, we're gonna go ahead and say that his huge increase in popularity after 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike had a lot to do with the release date change.

But is it worth it? Can the addition of 3D, some tweaks and more Tatum be the difference between mediocre results from preview audiences and a blockbuster hit?

You've seen the trailer. What do you think?
