Exclusive 3D Footage of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' to be Shown Before 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters'

Posted January 23, 2013 05:10 PM by Webmaster

ParamountParamount Pictures, MGM and Skydance Productions, in association with Hasbro, announced today that they will release a 4-minute preview of the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation in IMAX 3D, RealD 3D and digital 3D theaters before Paramount's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

The preview will play around the world beginning January 24th.

In this sequel, "the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra, they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona , Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki , Ray Park , Jonathan Pryce , Ray Stevenson , Elodie Yung , Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson." It is directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner of Hasbro, from a screenplay by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe characters.

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is set to open in theaters across the United States on March 29th.

Well at least it's not just IMAX like some others. Cause you know, like those who couldn't afford IMAX or didn't even have one near them didn't want to see the Star Trek scene.

Not going to lie, I've been checking the site once a week to see if the Blu Ray of GI Joe 2 has been announced, I could have sworn it came to theaters last year haha.

This movie is doomed. Destined for failure.

Not only do most people really dislike the first G.I. Joe movie (It seems to be a general consensus), but they're also incredibly uninterested in a sequel. The delay has only made things worse.

I can't possibly imagine this movie being good, and it will only do marginally well (AT MOST) at the box office. I'm certainly skipping it.

Isn't the 3D on G.I. Joe 2 post-converted?

yes it is converted, but i saw the 3D trailer before texas chainsaw, and i will say, it looked REALLY great! quite tremendous. and to be fair, the director did step up 3D, he knows his 3D. and i remember an article about him supervising the conversion so it lives up to the highest standards. so far so good.

@bluknight1
3D conversions have gotten much better for example The Avengers postconverted 3D looked really good.

Anyways a plus to people who were planning to watch Hansel and Gretel in 3D.

I don't know, but the trailer looks pretty good to me in 2D and when it comes out on 3D, I'll be standing in line buying this succa. I am big fan of good 3D blus and I have been knocked by others on this site because I do like 3D blus so if anyone wants to knock me, then enjoy yourself, because ain't nobody makin me change my mind about what I like and what I don't like. So there... have fun...

PS... for those of you that do not like 3D, then I think your parents must have dropped you on your head (several times).

PSS. Don't cut in line when the stores open up to sell this blu in 3D. I'll be watching...

@bluknight1,

Yes. The 3D post-conversion was only 1 of the reasons for its delayed release. Among the other reasons were that they wanted to re-edit the film and re-shoot scenes with Channing Tatum so that he wouldn't be killed off in the beginning, as it was originally planned. They wanted his character to interact more with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's. They also didn't want to compete with Tatum's other film "Magic Mike."

@LordRaymond,

True that. We may no longer have to actually film in 3D in the near-future. I plan to see the new Star Trek movie in 15 perf/70mm IMAX. That one is also a post-convert. So we'll see if post-convert 3D can match native 3D.

@prkprkprk,

You may be wrong, you may be right. "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" may have won Worst Picture at the Razzies, but it's the 31st highest grossing film of all time and it made over 4x its $200 million budget, and they still did a sequel. The reviews for "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" were mixed to negative, but it did not receive as much negativity as "Transformers 2" and it did well financially at the box office.

I think what has peaked peoples' interest in having a sequel was because of the cliffhanger at the end of the first film. And I am going to see it. And only by seeing the film will I know for sure if the delay was worth it. It wasn't just the 3D post-conversion that delayed it. They wanted to re-edit and re-shoot scenes with Channing Tatum because apparently he was originally supposed to be killed off at the beginning, like many other G.I. Joes. And they wanted him to have more screen time with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

I guess we'll have to wait and see. This movie has a different director (Stephen Sommers doesn't seem to have ANY involvement in the sequel), and it will only have a select few of the cast from the original movie. So hopefully the chemistry will be different and the dialog won't be cheesy. And the best part: NO ORIGIN STORY! And hopefully no freaking flashbacks!

@ tman418,

You make some good points. I will wait and see, but I don't have the best of hopes. I haven't been very impressed with any of the currently released trailers.

Officially the reason given for moving the release back so far was to add 3D post production. That and they saw how well Hunger Games had done with a March release. The rumor for the real reason that it got pushed back was that it had tested so poorly (one of the worst tested movies ever supposedly) and that originally they had killed off Channing Tatum's character almost right away. Apparently they went back and did a bunch of reshots (most likely to add Channing Tatum back into more of the film after his turns in Magic Mike, The Vow, and 21 Jump Street gave rise to him being more popular) and are hoping to capitilize on the timing of the release. I am cautiously hoping that things were improved. I can't believe how much they must have blown on advertising last year only to pull out a couple weeks before release.
