gijoesf-01-covera-159580

..And only 23 years after the merchandising tie-ins! Well not exactly (the comic was onlyannounced at comic con this past summer), but IDW publishing is putting out a 6-issue miniseries that pits Capcom’s pugilists against Hasbro’s Real American heroes. Written by Aubrey Sitterson (Hulk, Superman, Tech Jacket) and penciled by Emilio Laiso (Hack/Slash), SFXGJ will see M.Bison and Destro team up to hold a martial arts tournament with fan favorites such Ryu, Snake Eyes, Chun-Li, and Scarlet looking to take them down. Hopefully this will lead into a sequel featuring characters from Mortal Kombat. Or an ACTUAL VIDEOGAME!!

GI Joe: Retaliation delayed nine months for 3D conversion

The scheduled release date of GI Joe: Retaliation has been moved back nine months from June 29th, 2012 to March 13, 2013. According the Deadline, the reason is reportedly a decision to do a post-production conversion to 3D.

Choice quote:

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.

As a fan, I’m utterly disappointed. As a business decision, I think they are foolishly ignoring the positive hype they’ve worked so hard to build around this movie. The move may allow the film to perform better, though, due to fewer blockbuster movies opening around the same time and the better performance of 3D films internationally, added to the increased cost per ticket.

I am curious to see how this year’s JoeCon will procede since it seemed pretty clearly scheduled to coincide very closely with the movie’s release. You can imagine the fan disappointment in that circle. How about Hasbro? They have an entire toy line planned for release this summer with no movie to support it for another nine months. I’m going to go ahead and call this a totally inconsiderate move by Paramount to all of its partners.

‘G.I. JOE Retaliation’ Trailer 2


I don’t recall Roadblock ever leading the Joes except for a maybe a couple of missions, but with Dwayne Johnson in the roll, Marvin Hinton is running the show.

As we learned from the previous trailer, Zartan disguised as the US President has ordered the entire GIJOE team executed, with only Roadblock, Flint, and Lady Jaye surviving. All three are new characters to the movie series, and although we see Channing Tatum reprise his roll as Duke, we’re left to assume he’s dead.

You’ll spot a little more of Cobra Commander, some HISS Tanks rolling up to the US Capitol, and of course a bit more of Bruce Willis as Joe Colton. If the first Joe movie lacked star power, the sequel isn’t wanting for it.
