We know how upset you where when you first heard they were moving G.I. Joe: Retaliation from its June 29, 2012 release date to March 29, 2013 in order to accommodate reshoots. Oh, sorry. We meant to say: we know how upset you where when they originally moved G.I. Joe: Retaliation from its June 29, 2012 release date to March 29, 2013 in order to accommodate reshoots because Channing Tatum is in it. If you were peeved then, you’re going to be even more peeved now that we know the film’s new footage contains no new Channing Tatum. So basically it was a total waste, is what we’re implying. And by “implying,” we mean “screaming at a dark and unfeeling sky.”
“That is a complete rumor. I don’t know where that started,” G.I. Joe: Retaliation Lorenzo di Bonaventura told Crave Online. “Literally, Channing shot for – if I have it wrong, I’m off by an hour – four hours, five hours? So it wasn’t really about that at all.” Di Bonaventura then went on to explain that the production had shot for three more days, though offered no explanation for why the movie is not just 72 hours of Channing Tatum going about his day. The John Chu movie is still scheduled to drop this spring, though we’re sure we’ll be busy on March 29. Busy crying on a pile of 21 Jump Street DVDs, that is.
