Back in December 2011, I received a tip that Sgt. Slaughter would be appearing in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Obviously, that wasn't the case but it appears there was some truth to that rumor. Before diving into wrestling news, Sgt. Slaughter reveals that he was originally asked to play the role in G.I. Joe: Retaliation that went to Bruce Willis. "Yes, I was originally supposed to be the part of Bruce Willis' [as] Sgt. Slaughter but because we had a conflict in toy companies, Hasbro and Mattel, I wasn't able to do it. It's one of those things, Rock doesn't have a contract so he can do what he wants to do and he's been very successful." Related Content: Movie Review: G.I. Joe: Retaliation 2D G.I.

Let's get something straight. I know nothing about G.I. Joe. I've never read the comics, watched the cartoons or even bothered checking out 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra for that matter. For that reason, I can't tell you how happy G.I. Joe: Retaliation will make fans of the Hasbro franchise. I can however tell you that this sequel is tremendous fun! My main motivation for checking out this movie was undoubtedly Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and that's more than likely what Paramount were counting on when they signed him up as Roadblock. As per usual, he dominates the screen with his charm and charisma, while it's surprising just how much chemistry he shares with the ever improving Channing Tatum (Duke) in the early stages of the film. Elsewhere, the quality of performances vary greatly. Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow), Elodie Yung (Jinx) and D.J. Cotrona (Flint) are totally forgettable, »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been in UK cinemas for a little over week now and I’m only just getting round to my review. Why? Well I wanted to see the film a few times before putting anything down on (virtual) paper, as I wanted to make sure my first instincts were right. And they were… I’m disappointed.
I was expecting great things from G.I. Joe: Retaliation and maybe that’s the problem. As a huge fan of the original movie (I can safely say that amongst the movie bloggers I read and am acquainted with I am seriously in the minority when I say that) I was looking forward to what looked to be, »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation features the G.I. Joe Team coming into a conflict with Zartan, Storm Shadow and Firefly, all serving under the newly released Cobra Commander. Zartan (who is still impersonating the President of the United States) frames all G.I. Joe operatives as traitors to the United States, exterminating most of them and leaving a small group of survivors. Zartan and the Commander now have all the world leaders under Cobra’s control, with their advanced warheads aimed at innocent populaces around the world. Badly beaten, outnumbered and outgunned, the Joes make a desperate plan to overthrow Cobra Commander and take back the world, with their secret »

There were many fans upset by Stephen Sommers' first live-action entry in the G.I. Joe series. Some complained about the fact that the "Real American Hero" tagline was removed. Others felt the actors chosen for the parts were miscast. A few felt the movie relied on gadgets and CGI too much. Whatever the reasons were, director John M. Chu felt the need to make it up to the disappointed masses with G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
I've never been a big fan of G.I. Joe. As a child, I would play with the original dolls which had the pull string on his back, poseable arms and legs, and real hair with a beard. Every version of the toy looked the same except that they'd give him a different uniform and hair color.
When the G.I. Joe boom hit in the 1980s, I really wasn't too interested in army men with fancy weaponry. »

We previously heard comments from D.J. Cotrona's regrets about not moving on to don the Superman suit for Warner Bros.' now defunct Justice League: Mortal, and during an interview with Cinema Blend, the G.I. Joe: Retaliation actor talks more about the DC Comics ensemble. He's asked about the costume that he was going to wear, and he offers nothing but praise for the suit. He says that his Superman would've been a full-on alien god in the movie, and the suit set off that tone. He also says that Supes' relationship with Batman (who would've been played by Armie Hammer) in Mortal was one that he always wanted to see. The rest of the film's cast included Common as Green Lantern, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Hugh Keays-Byrne Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord. »

With G.I. Joe Retaliation dominating the box office this weekend, Paramount Pictures has decided to move forward with the currently untitled G.I. Joe 3.
G.I. Joe Retaliation, which debuted last Friday, has already brought in $132 million globally and is expected to reach $410 million worldwide. The movie ran Paramount $130 million to make, which is less than the $175 million it took to bring G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra to fruition, which brought in $303 million worldwide.
G.I. Joe Retaliation was released March 28th, 2013 and stars Dwayne Johnson, Jonathan Pryce, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, Ray Stevenson, D.J. Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum. The film is directed by Jon M. Chu.
G.I. Joe 3 comes to theaters in 2016. »
G.I. Joe sequel tops global box office, boasting the year's no. 1 debut around the globe Here's definitive proof that audiences the world over have an insatiable thirst for Good Movies, Good Stories, and Good Acting: director Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe: Retaliation, "2013's first blockbuster" in the words of distributor Paramount, opened with a remarkable $132 million at the worldwide box office -- the year's top weekend debut. (Pictured above in all their glory: six-packed D.J. Cotrona shirtless, Top Hunk Channing Tatum, and Big Bear Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock in the Magic Mike sequel, huh, in Gay I Joe -- er, in G.I. Joe: Retaliation) As found in The Hollywood Reporter, studio vice chairman Rob Moore remarked that the $130 million-budgeted action flick's 3D conversion and reshot sequences got it "to a great place," which helps to explain the film's international success. Said "great place" has a worse-than-mediocre 21% approval »

Let's go Joe! Feeling more like reboot than a sequel, G.I. Joe Retaliation stars Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock who takes command of the Real American Heroes after a set-up leaves many soldiers dead and the remaining on the run from their own country. Returning from the first film: Channing Tatum as Duke, masked butt-kicker Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Jonathan Pryce as the president. Newcomers Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye and D.J. Cotrona as Flint just follow orders. As a movie, Retaliation is popcorn fun, ditching Rise of the Cobra's misplaced serious tone for a more straightforward sense of honor and duty. Of course Roadblock gets a chance to return to his old stomping ground to get back to the basics! Why »
The Movie: G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) Studio: Paramount Pictures Director: Jon M. Chu Starring: Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, Jonathan Pryce as President, Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow, Elodie Yung as Jinx, Ray Stevenson as Firefly, D.J. Cotrona as Flint, Adrianne Palicki as Jaye, Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Luke Bracey as Cobra Commander, Walton Goggins as Warden Nigel James, Arnold Vosloo as Zartan, Joseph Mazzello as Mouse and RZA as Blind Master Screenwriters: Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick RottenTomatoes: 29% MetaCritic: 42/100 Snippet from My Review: (read my full review here) Of the few defenders of 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, many liked to say it took them back to their childhood. In my mind that means they were taken back to the days of Osh-Kosh B'Gosh and when eating anything off the ground seemed plausible. By comparison, G.I. Joe: Retaliation will also take you back to your childhood, »

With G.I. Joe: Retaliation tracking an impressive $100 million + opening at the global box office this weekend, there's a good chance we'll be seeing further big-screen adventures for the Real American Heroes, but could that involve a crossover with Paramount Pictures' other big Hasbro property Transformers? According to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura it's unlikely at this point in time, but he's not going as far as ruling it out entirely:
"I guess it's possible. At this moment I [would] resist it," di Bonaventura told CinemaBlend. "I don't know necessarily why, but I just think there's so much that's so rich in the mythologies that I don't think they need to draw from the other. I don't rule it out. It's not to say you couldn't do it well, but both these properties have such rich mythologies with so many characters, that you could [make] a lot of movies before you start running »

Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Jonathan Pryce and Ray Stevenson.

New GI Joe 2,Retaliation movie delivered great action,stunts,& more. Paramount Pictures released their new action flick, "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation" this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was highly entertaining,serving up a ton of action and stunts that just never stopped. The movie stars: D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis, and Dwayne Johnson. In the new flick, the evil Zartan ,disguised himself as the President of the United States to help bring the Cobra destruction plan into fruition. His first orders were to use the Presidential power to order and attack on the G.I. Joe team,exterminating them all,so they couldn't come back and stop the Cobra plan from being carried out,later on. The attack on the Joes was successful but not complete as three of the Joes: Road Block,Lady Jaye, »
G.I. Joe sequel will definitely land at no.1 on the Us/Canada box office chart: But what are the chances this 3D sequel will pass the $50 million mark? You must have heard Hollywood producers, exhibitors, those people at the Motion Picture Association of America, and some film critics remark that "If you make Good Movies, audiences will come," or "There's no box-office malaise that a Good Movie can't cure," or "Moviegoers are eager to embrace Good Movies, Good Storytelling, and Good Acting." (Pictured above: Hunky Channing Tatum looks like he is ready for battle in the 3D action flick G.I. Joe: Retaliation.) Well, the proof is in the celluloid (or, nowadays, digital) pudding: Featuring a trio of action stars -- Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, and Bruce Willis -- Jon M. Chu's sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation, will easily top the North American box office this weekend. Trailing the »

Io9 has just posted some concept art that was created by the Aaron Sims Company. They include different versions of Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander's costumes. I'm sure all of the five fans of 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rises Of Cobra will be quiet upset that none of the images below feature lips for Snake Eyes' mask, nor a see-through plastic mask for Cobra Commander. Sorry you five guys, maybe next time. Image Credit: Aaron Sims Company In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy, Cobra, they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, written by Rhett Reese »
