GI JOE: RETALIATION To Be Pushed Back By Almost A Year

GI JOE: RETALIATION To Be Pushed Back By Almost A Year

Reports are coming in that the movie will be pushed back all the way to March of 2013 so that it can be converted to 3D, and as a result make more cash Internationally. Read on for the details..

Deadline are reporting that Paramount have pushed Gi Joe: Retaliation back all the way from it's original June 29th release date to March 29th of next year. That's another 9 months for fans to wait to see The Rock and co do their thing. The reason for the drastic pushback? Money of course! Paramount plan to convert the movie to 3D after seeing how much better Box Office other post-converted movies have done.

A studio exec tells Deadline..

“We’re going to do a conscientious 3D job because we’ve seen how it can better box office internationally. Jim Cameron did all of Titanic‘s 3D in post – and look how well that movie turned out.”

The March release date was also chosen because of how well The Hunger Games did when it was released a couple of months ago. I'm not a big Joe fan but this must really grind your gears if you are. Sound off below.

They could've at least done this a couple months ago, before marketing was in full swing. But at the last minute? Ridiculous.

Gigacrusher45 - 5/23/2012, 1:58 PM
This is stupid. No movie does good BECAUSE it's post converted. It does good because it's A GOOD MOVIE. Damn it to hell.
DoomXfactor - 5/23/2012, 2:00 PM
WOW that's lame lol
nowtheresaBATman - 5/23/2012, 2:01 PM
Duke Tatum's "Magic Mike" movie was set to release the same week as this so they probably figured it'd be to much competition. lol
RorMachine - 5/23/2012, 2:02 PM
Patient Zero, it's not a rumor, it's been confirmed.
Spideyguy94 - 5/23/2012, 2:03 PM
This decision could also be the fact that it's coming out just 5 days before TASM which could damage it's box office numbers heavily
TheGambitFreak - 5/23/2012, 2:03 PM
HOLY SHIT! When I saw this, I thought this was some April Fools shit! HAHA! This is awesome!!

I am Batshit Happy with this news! HAHA!

Wildaniel - 5/23/2012, 2:05 PM
This is HORRIBLE! I really cant believe it. The movie was gonna come out next month, I mean I friggin saw a t.v. spot the other day, they already have toys at Walmart!!!!

I really hope is a re-shoot, then bring back Scarlet, The Baroness, and Destro! Then I would be happy.
DoomXfactor - 5/23/2012, 2:05 PM
I guess they wait.....
Knightrider - 5/23/2012, 2:05 PM
I do blame Cameron for this. If it wasn't for him pushing cinema technology backwards, but doubling movie profits this kinda stuff wouldn't happen.

3D should be like shots and sounds in a movie, only used to aid the stories progression, so far I am yet to watch a 3D film, where afterwards U have said "Thank god for all that 3D or I would not have understood it at all"

felixxx - 5/23/2012, 2:06 PM
3D MOVIES SUCK FAT BALLS. Just because of "conversion to 3D" is the reason for the delay, im not seeing it in the theater AT ALL! Good job DIP S---S,now theres one less ticket for your box office numbers, F---ing F-----S!
nowtheresaBATman - 5/23/2012, 2:07 PM
We can always see Duke in MAGIC MIKE!
Knightrider - 5/23/2012, 2:07 PM
@Nomis although some films have had that ploy, I must say I enjoyed Avengers, but there were at least 4 or 5 shots where stuff came towards the camera, which is pretty cheesy.
CaptainObvious - 5/23/2012, 2:08 PM
Despite this shocking news, I had no interest in seeing this movie anyway. The first one was terrible, so I have no plans to see the sequel.
WarnerBrother - 5/23/2012, 2:10 PM
This is great news for The Amazing Spider-Man.Now it has the forth of July to itself.
Sony should move spidey from it's tuesday opening to friday June 29th so it gets
3 whole weeks before TDKR comes out.
JasonCYates - 5/23/2012, 2:12 PM
[frick] 3D, just release the damn film, I don't know anybody who is jazz about it in 3D anyway.
mrexcellent - 5/23/2012, 2:13 PM
That's like a huge slap in the face to the people who were looking forward to seeing this movie in its intended format. I'm shocked that they would be so forward about it. Then again, what else would they say that wouldn't sound worse?

With that in mind, I think TASM needs to snag GI Joe's release date. It could use a full 3 weeks to itself at the Box Office before Batman comes in. I believe it will be a decent movie, and I want it to do well. I don't care if it breaks any records, but right now it's at, what? Two weeks, four days of alone time? I think TASM could use a little more space.
2gold - 5/23/2012, 2:13 PM
This could explain why all the ads just up and stopped for the movie. Unbelievable. So now, you tick off the few people would had some mild interest and hope they wait until next year? This is a stupid decision.
eviltattooedguy - 5/23/2012, 2:13 PM
If this is true than [frick] this movie and [frick] 3D! 3d doesnt add shit to movies unless its all completely done that way like avatar. I loved the avengers but was pissed that i paid $15 for the lame assed 3d in that!
NeoBaggins - 5/23/2012, 2:13 PM
So, you know what this means, right?

I won't be caring... in 3D
shaunmagg - 5/23/2012, 2:14 PM
Bad form, Paramount Pictures, bad form
CaptainObvious - 5/23/2012, 2:15 PM
Does anybody care about 3D anymore?
