A last-minute switch for the film…
Paramount Pictures has pushed off the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. SuperHeroHype reports that the film, which was set for release on June 29th, will now release a full nine months later on March 29th, 2013.
The studio cited 3D conversion as the reason, with Hasbro president Brian Goldner noting, "It is increasingly evident that 3D resonates with movie-goers globally and together with Paramount, we made the decision to bring fans an even more immersive entertainment experience."
