You probably didn't think much of 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' despite its $300 million worldwide gross. After all, the film -- from noted hack director Stephen Sommers -- was savaged by critics, and audiences didn't seem too pleased either -- at least judging by 'G.I. Joe's' heinous IMDb user rating. Fortunately, 'The Rise of Cobra' came out at a time when ticket buyers were spending money like the 1%; put out 'The Rise of Cobra' now, and it would be lucky to hit $200 million worldwide -- even in 3D. So! How did Paramount change 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' in an effort to prevent the sequel from paying for the sins of the original? By casting Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Bruce Willis and Tyra from 'Friday Night Lights,' of course!
