G.I. Joe: Return of the Kimchi Ninja Pushed Back to March 2013



When the plug was pulled on Megaupload, it was as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror as downloads were suspended. Today news broke that G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be pushed back from June 29th to March 2013 and tens of voices suddenly cried out in agony.

Conspiracy theories abound as a source close to the movie, but not authorized to speak officially, has said this move was to convert the picture into 3D1. There is also speculation that the delay is due to the incredible box office performance of The Avengers2. But others think is that this is all a ploy so The Rock can cook something during Wrestlemania 29 next spring3.

Regardless of why the movie is delayed, next month will no longer hold the promise of glorious projections of Lee Byung Hun's abs at our local cinemas. It will be a tough summer without his charms but we will survive... and probably watch The Good, the Bad, the Weird a lot.

purkin 24th-May-2012 01:50 am (UTC)
Are you fucking kidding me? It took it longer to convert Titanic to 3D than the time it took to originally film it...so why didn't they just film GI Joe 3D in the first place, so they wouldn't have to spend a shitton of money and waste a fuckton of time?!

I'm sure someone thinks that doing this will help the movie break even internationally. I doubt they were expecting it to make that much anyways.
miki_831 24th-May-2012 01:56 am (UTC)
wow that is a seriously huge push back.
umbrella_smile 24th-May-2012 02:02 am (UTC)

Dat photo, dat gif, dat everything..

I was watching A Bittersweet Life a few days ago, which just so happens to be one of my fave Byungie flicks.
I forgot how much I missed this man, I wish he would do more bad-ass Korean films.
But I guess he's trying to be a Hollywood action star now.
neumi 24th-May-2012 02:13 am (UTC)
In all my years of moviegoing, this is the first time I've ever seen a studio actually yank a film RIGHT BEFORE it comes out. This is ridiculous.
asnindie 24th-May-2012 09:00 am (UTC)
And they were in full promo mode aswell. If anything this will sink the film.
laceandskin 24th-May-2012 02:19 am (UTC)
I'm just going to sit there and think about how amazingly hot he is.

Ditto.
rosamajalis 24th-May-2012 02:29 am (UTC)


why would you do thisss?
3D is awful. That shit was only cool in the 1950s.
allthingsgood 24th-May-2012 02:39 am (UTC)
what the fuck. i was so excited to see this next month and NOBODY EVEN LIKES MOVIES IN 3D GIVE IT A REST HOLLYWOOD >:(
monster_mutt 24th-May-2012 03:08 am (UTC)

love_keiko 24th-May-2012 03:17 am (UTC)

supplanter 24th-May-2012 03:33 am (UTC)
Amazingly hilarious poast XDDD
shanny_w 24th-May-2012 04:04 am (UTC)
This is unacceptable!
glyphs 24th-May-2012 04:23 am (UTC)
WHAT. I was so excited to see this in a few weeks (solely for Lee Byung Hun, because the first movie sucked otherwise). If it is for the conversion to also have a 3D release, I am annoyed beyond words. Every movie I've gone to see in 3D has been a complete waste of the extra money. WAY TO PISS ME OFF, STUDIO. >=(
one_broken 24th-May-2012 04:26 am (UTC)
noooooooo now i am sad.
