Last spring, Paramount made the surprising decision to delay G.I. Joe: Retaliation by nine months, from June 2012 to March 2013, so that it could be converted to 3D. Now, in just a couple of months, we’ll find out whether that costly last-minute change was worth it.

The latest trailer tries to hype up the new 3D with plenty of ninja-tastic action. But to really get a sense of how the whole 3D thing has worked out for Paramount and MGM you may want to buy a ticket to this weekend’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, as it’ll screen with a four-minute 3D preview of G.I. Joe Retaliation. Read more details and watch the new promo after the jump.

Bruce Willis has starred in many sequels over the course of his three-decade career, but in 2013 he really outdoes himself with three separate sequels and nothing else. The first of them, A Good Day to Die Hard, hits next month, followed by G.I. Joe: Retaliation in March. Bringing up the rear is Red 2, which has just unveiled a first trailer in advance of its August release.

While the first one wasn’t anything special, it was an enjoyable bit of fluff elevated by a stellar cast. Red 2 looks to be in a similar vein. Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) takes over directing duties this time around, while Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, and Mary-Louise Parker all reprise their roles. This time around, the gang is headed to Europe to stop a nuclear device from falling into the wrong hands. Anthony HopkinsCatherine Zeta-Jones, David Thewlis, and Willis’ G.I. Joe co-star Byung-hun Lee also appear. Check out the video after the jump.

This past weekend, Paramount brought footage from the delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation to Harry Knowles’ annual 24-hour movie marathon in Austin, TX. I wasn’t in attendance, but the consensus on the Joe footage, which featured that mountainside ninja battle, was easy to read: everyone I talked to said the sequence had some of the best post-converted 3D they’d seen. Many films and quite a few clips of upcoming releases were screened at BNAT14, but the Retaliation footage created more positive talk than some other new stuff did. Doesn’t mean the movie is a winner, necessarily, but it sounds like the 3D conversion was a success.

You won’t get to see that 3D online, but this new trailer for the March release does show some new footage. It also includes slightly more of Channing Tatum than any previous trailer for the film has — whether that is due to the reported beefing-up of his role in the movie still isn’t something we know at this point. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
