‘G.I. Joe 2′ Pushed Back to March 2013 for 3D Conversion
Here’s an unexpected twist: Paramount is delaying the release date for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, just over a month before the sequel was originally due to hit theaters around the U.S. Retaliation has now been pushed back an entire nine months to a March 29th, 2013 date – where it will face off against The Host during its opening weekend.
The reason for said abrupt delay? Paramount wants to convert the film to 3D, in order to improve its box office prospects overseas.
Deadline quotes an unnamed Paramount head as saying (about Retaliation):
“We’re going to do a conscientious 3D job because we’ve seen how it can better box office internationally. Jim Cameron did all of ‘Titanic’‘s 3D in post – and look how well that movie turned out.”
