Channing Tatum calls G.I. Joe: Retaliation “hip” and “edgy”

And no, he still won’t admit to being killed off!  He spoke with MTV on camera about the G.I. Joe sequel and opened up a tiny bit about how he thinks it’s going to turn out.  To the interviewer’s credit, she tried pretty hard to get him to admit his character wasn’t making it all the way through the film, but Tatum did not bite.

Check out the video interview here, or embedded below.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation snippet from Entertainment Tonight

Today turned from a normal day to a G.I. Joe: Retaliation whirlwind with word from Jon Chu that not only would a Retaliation trailer be released during the Super Bowl, but that Entertainment Tonight would show a glimpse of that same trailer tonight!

Well a “glimpse” is certainly all it was…a barely 10 second look at the trailer, and with hardly any new footage.  But being the Retaliation junkie that I am, I captured it and YouTubed it.

The quality isn’t great, but for a small sampling like this, I didn’t feel like pouring over the capture software to get the best render possible.  Hopefully it’s acceptable.  The one on Sunday promises to be a bit more exciting, I’d imagine!

New G.I. Joe: Retaliation footage to be unveiled during the Super Bowl!

It started innocently enough…a Tweet from G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M Chu asking the following:

“Dear #GIJoeRETALIATION fans…. get ready…….” 

Ready for what?  Ready, apparently, for a trailer launch during the biggest television spectacle of the year!

According Jon Chu on Twitter, we WILL be seeing a new trailer on TV during the Super Bowl on Sunday!  Patriots football and a new G.I. Joe trailer?  I may just pass out from awesomeness on Sunday.

Sideshow Collectibles 12″ Baroness due to be released in 2012?

Big thanks to Rich from for spotting an interview between Cool Toy Review and Sideshow Collectibles who talked quite a bit about Sideshow’s G.I. Joe releases.  Chief among the revelations was that Sideshow is currently working on a new female body, with the initial plans to be for a 12″ Baroness figure!

The exact text is below:

DMM The DC Universe has a varying range of characters from adult male and female, to teens, and scrawny adults. Are you prepared to move past the iconic male figure? 

BB Hopefully so, yeah. We’ve got a new female body in the early production phases. We’re working through test shots and things. We’ll be debuting it this year in the G.I. Joe line, as Baroness. That’ll be in the mid part of 2012, and then superhero, super villain gals will follow after that. Our new beefier male body is quite different from our Prometheus and trooper male bodies. 

DMM Have we seen parts of this new body in Rock ‘N Roll or even Duke? 

BB No. While the proportions may be similar, this new body will be unique. “

So they plan on revealing the Baroness in mid 2012 for potential release later in the year.  Very cool news.  They talk a bit further about G.I. Joe as well, confirming that the Crimson Guard head was influenced by “Fred” and that their design for the Cobra Viper was influenced by what Cobra did in the 4″ line for Pursuit of Cobra/30th Anniversary.

All in all, it’s a fascinating read, and you should check it out right here.
