I’ve come to terms that I won’t be seeing GI JOE: Retaliation until March 2013. And now GeneralsJoes is reporting via Deadline that there is more to the delay than meets the eye (see what I did there).
Earlier screenings were met with two criticisms. The first being that Roadblock (The Rock) and Duke (Channing Tatum) didn’t develop a good relationship before … SPOILER ALERT Duke died. The second criticism was that the film wasn’t in 3D. A source within Paramount pointed to these areas in addition to the flop of Battleship as reason enough to go back and work on these area.
Apparently additional footage has or will be shot with Channing Tatum, who may or may not die now. As long as we are getting the best possible product, I’m okay waiting until 2013.
