The March 29th G.I. Joe: Retaliation release date is right around the corner. Are studio executives worried? How concerned are the fans about the postponements, 3D conversion and other problems from behind the scenes?
Like we stated in yesterday’s podcast, put a mountain-side ninja fight in a movie and you’ll find us at the theatre on opening day. Yes, there are some serious red flags that should be considered here, but as long as this film can succeed above the the low-balling first film, there will be happy fans. And I’ll be one of them.
If you’re unfamiliar with the team, check out these five character videos for Snake Eyes (Ray Park), Jinx (Elodie Yung), Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Cobra Commander (Robert Baker) and Firefly (Ray Stevenson). The best part about these videos is that they include some new footage!
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, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe® characters.
