GI Joe Retaliation has been pushed back to March 2013. That doesn’t seem good. I don’t remember the last time that a movie was pushed back so long without the movie seeming disappointing. Also they have already made promos and paid for a Superbowl ad. (It seems unlikely to me that the studio will spend money for another Superbowl ad.) The movie will be converted to 3D. It seems a bit odd. The director had experience filming in 3D, why not just shoot the movie in 3D?
Does this move have anything to do with the failure of Battleship? (Well, the film failed domestically.) I guess the studio would not say so. It is from a different studio than Battleship
Reviews of Men in Black 3 are decent on average. Roger Ebert said it was better than the original. Josh Brolin is getting good reviews fo the most part. I think I will go see it this weekend or on Memorial Day. I am surprised that the franchise went 10 years between films.
I am also surprised that Will Smith has not had a film since 2008. Some stars like Channing Tatum or Emma Stone have two or more films a year. I wonder why Smith took time off.
