Ten-hut! Those excited for the military movie sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation will have their action appetites whetted this weekend.

A four-minute preview of the new film, in theaters March 29, will play before showings of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters beginning Thursday night at special 10 p.m. screenings and running through the theatrical engagement of the fairy-tale adaptation starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton.

Fans will be able to see the G.I. Joe: Retaliation preview in IMAX 3-D, Real 3-D and digital 3-D theaters across the USA. The new movie had been slated for release last summer but was rescheduled mainly so Paramount could convert the film based on the toys and cartoons of the 1980s to 3-D.

A follow-up to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is directed by Jon M. Chu and stars Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum and Adrianne Palicki.
