Sad and unexpected news for G. I. Joe fans: The release of G. I. Joe: Retaliation has been pushed back to March 29th, 2013. Paramount explained that this unexpected change was made so that the film could be post-converted to 3D. The news of this release date change comes as a shock, since the movie was just over a month away from being released.
While this sudden switch will no doubt disappoint many people, the good news is that 3D post conversion isn’t always a bad thing. Look at The Avengers, for example. The 3D added to the experience rather than hindered it, but the movie was carefully converted into 3D AFTER filming was completed.
What do you all think? Are you pleased, disappointed, or indifferent about the status of the new G. I. Joe film?
