Courtesy of Fandango.com we have a great new featurette showcasing all of the great hardware and instruments of destruction found within the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film universe. Interspersed between clips of said destruction, Jon Chu gives a bit of insight into production of the film and the use of certain iconic vehicles.
There is tons of great new vehicle footage throughout this featurette… some really incredible looking battle sequences between the Ripsaw, the HISS, and others. Wow. Wow wow wow. Check it out at Fandango.com, or it’s also embedded below.
Kudos to the eagle eyes of Skinny from Serpentors Lair who stumbled upon a great amount of G.I. Joe: Retaliation related videos on YouTube. These videos have been uploaded to the B & H Film Distribution YouTube channel and contain some great interviews and some really awesome behind the scenes battle sequences.
This is really some great stuff, everyone should check it out. There are a number of videos, so I’m going to post them all after the jump, but you should check them out, for sure.
These interviews aren’t normally the most exciting thing to look forward to for an upcoming film, but when they actually reveal some new footage, that’s a different story! UIPThailand has posted two video interviews up on YouTube, and there is actually some cool new footage mixed in amongst the questions and answers. We see some behind the scenes stuff and more!
With the film premiere in Korea and Australia complete and things moving forward towards the UK and the United States, apparently the set visit reports, which were previously embargoed, have been green-lit and are ready for launch! We have a bunch of various websites reporting on these visits and writing up different articles in regards to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Let’s go through them:
Screen Rant made their set visit before the film’s delay, now quite a while ago, and do a great job breaking down the visit and summarizing various interviews with cast and crew. They visited Fort Pike, the NASA facility in New Orleans and write up a fantastic run down of various things we can expect based on their experiences.
Wow, the folks at Latino Review go all out for this set visit. There’s a full blown video blog with El Mayimbe, Frosty (from Collider), and George from Arcade Sushi, and they break down the visit as well. The links you see above are various different things that Latino Review brings to their site with the set visit, including tons of cast interviews, the video blog itself, and a whole lot more. I think they really nailed this one.
Collider also posted the video blog recap that Latino-Review mentioned above, but dove into their set visit report, too, breaking down 25 (yes TWENTY-FIVE) things to know about the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation film. Now, granted, they didn’t go as crazy as Twitziller with his 40 reasons to catch G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but 25 ain’t no slouch. It’s a great article that you should definitely check out. Also, as you can see above, they have posted a plethora of actor interviews straight from the set of the film.
You know what I love about these set visits? Everyone is really doing something different. Latino Review loads up on the interviews and does a video blog… Collider runs with 25 things to know, and ComingSoon.net goes old school with some great G.I. Joe themed filecards, which each link to a different interview, up to eight in total. A very unique way to present that. I dig it.
IGN also made a visit, and does a terrific set visit report, too. Rather than posting separate interviews with each cast member, they take some interview highlights and weave them into the content of the story itself, which is an effective tact, to be sure. It’s very thorough and well presented.
As you all can see there are a ton of details here, a ton of links, and a veritable avalanche of G.I. Joe: Retaliation content. Let it envelop you! Two weeks to go!
We originally saw this featurette recording from a smart phone camera as it aired on WWE Raw, but now IMDB has the video in HD quality, and it is awesome. Yes, the same footage, yes the same music, but with some added behind the scenes stuff, this is a really great look at the film.
Between the character vignettes, the TV spots, and now this… wow. G.I. Joe: Retaliation video overload. Unfortunately the video is not embeddable (yet), but check it out at IMDB.com.
Big thanks to John from JoeArmory for the heads up.
