Default Year wait for GI Joe

Paramount have announced that GI Joe 2 is being shelved for almost a year for 3D conversion.

The first film looked terrible, but the trailers for this one have been pretty damn awesome so far. Shame we have to wait now

At least Prometheus is nearly here.

They're doing it to convert it to 3D because Battleship didn't do as well as they hopped it would and they're blaming that on the fact it was not in 3D, and not the fact that it was a horrible piece of shit.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

No idea why a movie based upon a fucking board game wouldn't do well.... huh. Here's hoping Connect Four comes out in 3D!

I was looking forward to Joe2 as well.

Abandon GW, win back your wallet. Play Infinity!

Didn't like the first one at all and this one doesn't look to much better. Still, I know I'm going to see it whether I won't to or not.

Battle ship flopped in the states because it went head to head with the avenger. outside of the syates its not done bad,in the uk it was quite a hit but we got it about a month before you guys.
Also 3d is alot better recived out side of the states which is why avengers foriegn ticket sales are so high. though i do think its a mistake this close to release to make this choice,they will have had toys and other licemced stuff in stores and stuff by now ? Gonna hurt them bad
