Hmmm— details coming your way! WE reported last week that GI JOE retaliation was moving from June 29th to March 29th, 2013—reasons were supposedly bc paramount wanted to add 3d—but this seemed kinda fishy to us all—really?! Delay a movie bc you suddenly think it needs to be in 3D?! We are thinking there were a few more factors at hand—for one, this summer is not an easy summer to debut in—weve got the avengers that are still hulk smashing box office records, mib3 which did pretty solid this past weekend, and ofcourse we have the dark knight and spidey still on their way to the silver screen—it goes without saying the competition is stiff. Deadline has revealed that another reason for the shift in release dates is the rising star power of Channing Tatum, who appeared as “Duke” in the original film and is revealed to be killed off early in the sequel from the trailers we’ve seen. Test screenings of the film have reportedly revealed that a huge negative for the audience was the relationship between Tatum’s “Duke” and Dwayne Johnson’s “Roadblock” not being able to develop into a friendship before he’s killed off. Tatum’s star power has been growing with recent hits 21 Jump Street and The Vow, plus he is getting a lot of buzz for his upcoming stripper film Magic Mike, which would have been GI

    TYVM for ruining the film?

  2. panthersquad1301 says:

    Let’s hope this is the case & that they do reshoot parts of it in order not to kill him off. Duke was always the main Joe in the cartoon & comics just like Optimus Prime was in Transformers. It would be a very bad move on their part to do that. I liked the first movie but I know alot of people didn’t. This would be away to get those fans back for this movie if they decided not to kill him off.

    pffffftttt al of them 😛 but how dare they kill off duke in the film! hes my 2nd favourite gi joe character (snake eyes my favourite :P) it just annoys me. i was getting plans for me and my dad to watch it together until paramount pushed the date back! me and my dad really were disappointed

  4. ToadHermite says:

    because NO DUKE.

  5. Rusana31 says:

  6. MGKkid3 says:

    Of course they had 2 push the release back with the avengers,batman and all the other heavy hitters G.I. Joe is gonna have to step they’re game if they want to top any of them. Either they bring duke back with 3D or prepare 2 face the music.

  7. TebbiD says:

    He was fucking terrible in the movie

  8. Andrian Guzman says:

    duke is awesome and i thought duke was the main charcter in the movie im so pist off that they cut him off that movie whos fucking idea was that .shit man a bole of shit

  9. nb45001 says:

    Killing off Channing Tatum in GI joe 2 would be like if Chris Nolan killed off Bruce Wayne at the very start of the Dark Knight Rises.

  10. TheRhahiem says:

    the whole g.i. joe name is basicly all about duke……wtf hollywood

  11. Dantheman2010ish says:

    Funny Channing Tatums blacker in this movie than Marlon Wayans ha ha!!!

  12. arnabdas56 says:

    I was glad that Tatum wasn’t going to be in the movie. He is a clown. He initially didn’t want to do the first movie because he thought it would glamorize war. He eventually did it after someone convinced him it was more a comic book than a war movie. Really Tatum? What is so wrong about honoring soldiers you jerk! Cowards like you wouldn’t be able to make millions and live the comfortable life you live if it wasn’t for their sacrifice. You SHOULD glamorize them! They are the real stars, not you

  13. Elfrunner says:

    Ultimately, wars shouldn’t be fought at all, that way there’d be no “sacrifice,” as you put it. And G.I. Joe honors soldiers about as much as any other movie about war. In case you missed it, it’s Hollywood making money off of war. Do you think they care about anything but that? 😉

  14. arnabdas56 says:

    I wasn’t upset at GI Joe, I was upset at Tatum’s ignorant remarks. I know Tatum is far from being the only one. There have been so many movies in the last 10 years to trash the military. They mostly came out during the time of the Bush presidency because that radical partof Hollywood wanted to hurt him at all costs, even if it meant hurting soldiers. War shouldn’t be fought at all but this is a dangerous world and people do want to kill us. We should celebrate those who serve, not lambaste them

  15. Elfrunner says:

    Why worry about it? G.I. Joe was a retarded movie. It’s a shame it was successful enough to warrant a sequel.

  16. InsaneBatmanFan says:

    I don’t want Retalliation in 3d. I was going to see this on my birthday but now i have to wait to march next year. Paramount should put an original non Channing Tatum version on the dvd, or give us a choice when it is in cinemas

  17. chaosmaster747 says:

    its actully all of the above. duke’s being added to the main charicter list.

  18. dj3gs says:

    You actually can’t kill off Duke (He is the Main Character of the whole G.I. Joe Story)

  19. HORSESNDOGS9 says:

    i hope it’s because he is coming back! i really like the roll he plays in this franchise and i like the idea of him NOT GETTING KILLED OFF!

  20. FlipORican says:

    I really hope the test screening helped them rethink the movie and are going back to re-shoot and make it better. The first one was okay, I would of like to of seen more GI Joe characters based on the 80’s cartoon series.  Hopefully this sequel will out do the first one. I’d go watch it…bargain matinee of course.

  21. Omar Farooq Azam says:

    they better not kill him off but i heard he might be put into a coma instead (which is still gay but better then dying!), whoever came up with the idea of killing him off (in the beginning of the movie!!!!!!!) totally has no idea what to do in the industry he’s working in. i mean… give us EYE CANDY! and Duke’s character was just fine. really pathetic if they kill him off or if he goes into a coma… pathetic. if i dont see tatum in there, i’m not following GI Joes movies 😛

  22. dispinoylovzyou says:

    Why would they kill of Duke, he’s the main hero

  23. TheMrsexy14 says:

    that is some stupid shit why would they kill off duke. HE IS THE FUCKEN HERO IF ANYBODY DESERVES TO DIE IT IS NOT DUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. DragoonFlareRJ says:

    It was ore because Channing Tatum just sucked in the first one. Nothing against duke

  25. burrrroooooooaaabbyy says:

    This movie is going to be shit with out duke the rock is just starting to fuck every movie up
