I had gotten more excited that I should have done about the G.I. Joe sequel. (It has the Rock in it, u guyz! I can't help it!) And it's apparently just been delayed NINE FUCKING MONTHS.

Is this a joke? It's supposed to come out next month. I've never, ever heard of a movie being pulled, literally last second (haven't theaters already done their buys for showing this?) for any reason, let alone a motherfucking post-shot conversion to 3D. Because that's been notoriously successful of late and something people who are excited to see this movie in literally weeks are going to enjoy months from now. Fuckers.

ETA: I found this out on a site called "Coming Soon," too. Fucking no it's not!

Somebody screwed up somewhere. They could shoot an entirely new movie in that amount of time.

I mean, it's not like they didn't know that post-converting was a thing they could do until just before they almost released the movie. This has all the hallmarks of death about it.

They are - it's called Fast and Furious 6.

I just saw this shit.

What the fuck are they thinking? Most of the viewing public will have stopped caring about this movie by 2013...

It's a giant fucking waste of money, is what it is. How much have they already spent to advertise the damn movie? A lot, I'm guessing, from the ads I've seen on TV and at the movies and what have you. They're probably already working on unloading toys at Target that now no one is going to buy and they'll have to pay for that.

Worse, this is probably indicative of the studio's faith in the movie being worth seeing without the 3D surcharge, which doesn't exactly fill me with optimism, the Rock or no.

Yeah, no kidding.

Plus, at this rate, the Asylum knock-off will have 3 sequels by the time it comes out...

So that means you're free for some Battleship when I get back, right?

::shudders:: Can't we just rent The Grey instead?

I guess I shouldn't be so harsh. Battleship has gotten better reviews than Dark Shadows in a lot of venues.

...I feel a little dirty for saying this, but Battleship does look like a better movie.

They can't tease with the promise of the Rock and then take it away! Even I was looking forward to it....boo. 3D doesn't make everything better; the Rock makes everything better (QED). Haven't they learned anything?!

Haha, there are multiple billboards on my commute showing the old date. I wonder how long they'll stay up.

More importantly, what will this do to the toy industry (http://www.toplessrobot.com/2012/05/knowing_will_hasbro_will_do_about_gi_joe_retaliati.php).

Of course I heard. Everyone tells me these things first. Horrifying as this story was, I'd prefer to know of my impending doom sooner rather than later.
