Looks like G.I Joe Retaliation is going to add some new scenes for that extra dimension

1 min read

Like many of you, I too was doing my best Darth Vader NNNNNNNOOOOOOO! impersonation after hearing that GI Joe Retaliation had been pushed back a whopping nine months, in order for Paramount to maximize their profits.

They’re adding a 3D layer to the surface of the film as well, in order to attract that section of the market, much to the chagrin of many a moviegoer who happens to be sick and tired of the fad.

But at least they’ll be using the delay wisely, as it looks like some extra footage is going to be shot, to make the most of that fancy 3D technology.

Tweeting back to one of his millions (and millions!) of fans, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays Roadblock in the film, confirmed that new scenes were being added to the sequel.

While 3D filming, when done right and with native equipment, can be amazing, it’s always a little worrying when a film is slapped with some post-conversion 3D editing, before release, much like what happened to Clash of the Titans, which drew quite a bit of flack for that particular stunt.

But the Jon Chu Lin project has been looking pretty slick so far, and the man does have a talent for framing a sequence beautifully, for popcorn flicks.

After all, the 3D work on Step Up 3D was the only positive thing anyone had to comment on, with that film specifically. Let’s hope that he brings something new and exciting to the 9 month gap, and makes the wait worthwhile.

    Well, advance word on the film (after test screenings) was apparently pretty negative, from “it’s as bad as the first one” to “it actually manages to be worse than the first one”. 

    Paramount, not wanting to tempt fate, what with two big budget films already bombing this year (it’s not even June) have probably pulled the film cos there’s to much risk that comes with 

    a) releasing a piece of shit

    b) releasing a piece of shit that’s going to have competition coming at it from all sides in a year that’s stuffed to the gills with big films

    You don’t spend money on your baby, raise it, and then release it into the wild with full knowledge that it won’t be able to fend for itself when the wolves come calling. 

    Which is a staggeringly shit analogy, but it’s no less true

      Cue the studio edits. This will not end well. It didn’t for many movies. Anyone remember the Exorcist prequel(s)?
