Jack the Giant Slayer March 1

G.I. Joe: Retaliation March 29
First, Channing Tatum wasn’t big enough (apparently) to carry the story into a sequel. They brought in Dwayne Johnson to give it more muscle and Bruce Willis to give it more star power. Then, upon seeing the initial trailer last year and subsequent test screenings that showed Tatum getting killed off in the beginning, fans screamed. They reworked the movie to bring the star of the first part back into play more, though it’s uncertain whether he survives or dies later, but the trailer seems to suggest he plays a part in the action. This may be another disaster, even bigger than the first movie, but it needs to be mentioned just in case.

Iron Man 3 May 3
