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.
