Paramount Pictures has delayed the release of their upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation feature film until March 29, 2013 - as reported by Comingsoon.net - "a full nine months after its originally planned release date of June 29th." Why? Because the powers-that-be want to convert the film to 3D.
"It is increasingly evident that 3D resonates with movie-goers globally and together with Paramount, we made the decision to bring fans an even more immersive entertainment experience," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's President and CEO in an official statement.
With the toys being released and now the movie pushed back 3/4 of a year? I am wholly unsure of this makes sense to put a few more bums into cinema seats …something's afoot here besides the conversion delay, and I smell a 'cover-up'… Time will tell - there might well be a few good months of speculation before the movie premieres.
