With the major flop of the bloated Battleship, I would say Paramount is scared of another one. Even though the first movie, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra did well at the box-office, it was critically panned by critics and by fans of the original cartoon. I have to admit that the Retaliation trailer looks promising and more in line with the cartoon.
I had planned on having a G.I. Joe week at the end of June with a review on Rise of Cobra and the 80's G.I. Joe animated movie. I even sent out a few product review/giveaway requests to Hasbro and Shout Factory a few weeks ago. I highly doubt if I will hear from them about this as I'm sure they'll be changing the release dates on their G.I. Joe products to tie-in with the movie in March. I think I'll go ahead and post my reviews anyway in June.
