GI Joe Retaliation Movie Update

The Rock came out on Twitter and said that he just watched GI Joe in 3D and said it was “big and bad ass. Can’t wait for you to see this film. 3/29/13.”

While I think he has to say that the movie is big and bad ass because he is in it, and he needs to promote it; I am optimistic about the movie. Like I have said previously, the delay had and continues to make me nervous because I read the delay was cause by poor reviews, which lead to reshoots. It will be great to see Joe on the big screen again, regardless of the quality and that will also mean new toys on the aisles. 

There is also word that there will be a new GI Joe Retaliation theatrical trailer that will be hitting movie theaters soon as they ramp the advertising back up. Who knows, maybe it will be the rare (or only movie?) to have a spot in two different Super Bowls, haha.

Interview with Adrianne Palicki

Collider.com has an interesting interview with Adrianne Palicki discussing GI Joe Retaliation! Here is the link: http://collider.com/adrianne-palicki-red-dawn-gi-joe-2-interview/211386/

But I’ve taken the important parts below:

Collider: You’re also going through the same thing with the delay for the G.I. Joe sequel. Are you just like, “Enough already!”?

PALICKI: I was like, “Really?! Oh, my god!” I felt like, “Am I a bad luck charm? I don’t understand!” But again, that movie really came down to the fact that they didn’t want to be sandwiched in between two huge blockbuster movies and get trampled. I don’t think it would have, but I understand them being safe. And they also wanted to make it 3D, genuinely. So, I was like, “Okay, I get it.” There’s a reason for everything, I guess.

Collider: Did your physical training on Red Dawn help prepare you for G.I. Joe: Retaliation and give you a better sense of what to expect?

PALICKI: For G.I. Joe, I had much more physical action because I’m playing a Navy SEAL. So, it’s not only about holding a gun. I had to do everything 100% correctly. We had Harry Humphries, who’s one of the best of the best. He’s a retired Navy SEAL, who’s one of the original Navy SEALs, and he trained us. I loved him, but that was a lot of work. But, I felt like I was two steps ahead of the game, having done all the work on Red Dawn. And then, I also did Wonder Woman and had hand-to-hand combat training for that. I felt like I was ready.
