Hmm… this is an interesting bit of G.I. Joe Retaliation news.
According to both the official Facebook page and website for the film, the release date for the Jon M. Chu-directed sequel has been moved up one day– to March 28, 2012. That’s right– G.I. Joe Retaliation will now be dropping into theatres on a Thursday instead of on Friday.
I’m more than a little suspicious that this was done in order to maximize the weekend box office over the Easter holiday weekend. (It has nothing to do with the fact that my birthday is the same day. Really.)
Check out the new updated banner image that appeared on Facebook earlier this morning:
It would seem that the snazzy new poster I picked up a few months ago is a bit out of date. Heck, I could start a collection of the various release date posters at this point! At least it’s one day earlier and not another 9 month delay like last year.
One day closer!!!
