Joe fans and horror movie fans, check it out and let me know what you think! Already Twitter buddy Count Geekula has seen it, and even though he generally dislikes 3D conversions, he said this looks pretty good. Thanks to Jon Chu on Twitter for the intel!
I remember it like it was yesterday…an entire day of G.I. Joe: Retaliation character poster reveals, sending G.I. Joe webmasters scattering across the interwebz tracking them all down and collecting them all together.
Okay, maybe that was just me:
no images were found
Well, with March 27th quickly looming before us, we have a brand-spanking new G.I. Joe: Retaliation poster! Using many of the images from previous posters (including some of the character ones above), a bad ass Cobra symbol in the background, and a peek at the Cobra helicopter from the film, this new poster is pretty neat. Digital Spy was the first to reveal it, though the larger version mirrored below came from Yahoo Movies.
Courtesy of set photographer Jaimie Trueblood, we have some more images from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and some really nice ones here. Featuring heavy doses of Roadblock with Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes, and an incredible shot of Cobra Commander.
You ever have one of those days? Yeah, I think pretty much the entire G.I. Joe fandom yesterday had one of those days. When I got the text message from Gary last night about possibly recording a special edition, I’ll admit, I was hesitant, as I think he was, too. We both felt like we’d been kicked in the nards, and I don’t think either one of us was much in the mood to talk about it.
But then Twitter came to the rescue… the Tweets, emails, PM’s, and text messages started flooding in…Joe fans who wanted to talk it out. Admins of websites who wanted to talk about this. Wanted an immediate reaction. So, we decided what the hell. Gathering together a veritable “who’s who” of site administrators, G.I. Joe fans, elitists podcasters, and even some industry professionals, we took to Skype and gave it to you raw.
Full credit goes to Gary Godsoe who burned the midnight oil, spending hours after we were done recording getting the audio processed and online, pretty much raw and unedited. I will admit…it was cathartic. It was a huge help to me in figuring out where Paramount was coming from and what we should look towards moving forward to March, 2013, and I want to personally thank everyone who joined us.
Now, don’t think this is the end! We are taking your voice mail messages as well in preparation for our normal recording next week. We want to hear from YOU. Let your voices be heard concerning yesterday’s movie news. For our next episode we are going to feature YOUR voicemails. All you have to do is call in and share your thoughts. Please AT LEAST tell us your first name and PLEASE keep your messages no worse than a PG-13 rating. We reserve the right not to air any hostile or vulgar messages. (262) 515-9656
As of the recording last night we had already received almost two dozen voicemails, and obviously we can’t play them all, but we will choose some best of the best and share your raw emotion as we discuss what this means for the brand. No worries, this is a story we will be talking about for a long, long time. As usual, you can hit up our Podbean page to check out last night’s special edition, or check out the embedded player below. Some brief show notes as always after the jump.
