G.I. JOE: RETALIATION New Clip and Preview

It's been quite a ride following the news around the sequel "G.I. Joe: Retaliation". Yesterday, we had the opportunity to chat with director Jon M. Chu and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, about the film. We watched an exclusive clip and they helped shed some light on the delay of the film, the 3D process and the experience behind the huge blockbuster.

We all know in this industry, that film rumors spread like wildfire. Di Bonaventura finally put a big one to rest. "There were no reshoots. Channing Tatum's character is the same now as it was months ago".

Sorry Tatum fans, his role in the film may not be as large as you might have hoped. Fear not though, you still have good ol' Bruce Willis and the charismatic Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, to feed your appetite.

Di Bonaventura also discussed the strength of the post-conversion 3D addition. "The audience comes to this picture to have fun. The 3D component adds a dynamic, playful and fun aspect. It makes scenes appear more mythological."

On the pressure of adhering to a comic-book franchise with a big following, he states, "If you're not evolving forward, it's not going to work. I always consult at least 10 big fans of the franchise to see how far I can push it."

Director Chu explains how he mixed iconic characters and various elements to form one cool, cohesive theme. "You want the humor, you want the camaraderie. You want the ninjas right up against the military."

For Chu, he was a big fan of the franchise growing up, so being a part of this film was incredible. "I wanted the Snake Eyes I played with as a kid to come alive on the big screen. Bringing the Hiss tank to life was like a dream come true."

You can check out the cool clip we watched below, which premieres in front of "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters", releasing in AMC Theatres everywhere this Friday!

"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" hits AMC Theatres on March 29th.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
