I have an announcement! There will be an announcement!
Yes, I’m posting this to announce the fact that there will be an announcement. It’s my site I can do what I want, so there.
I just had to take a few minutes to thank the scores of fans out there who absolutely bombarded @ParamountPics Twitter feed over the past 18 hours! According to director Jon Chu, our Tweets made a difference and made an impact.
In fact, he just barely Tweeted the following:
“To all the G.I. JOE RETALIATION FANS out there, you guys rock!! Literally…Check out@TheRock twitter page for an announcement soon…”
So, it sounds like an official announcement is coming soon, quite likely in regards to the launch of the first trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Sure, we’ve been working with a timeline that the UK Facebook Page provided earlier today, but considering no official announcement from the actual production team has come yet, that must still be considered rumor. Hopefully not for much longer.
Once again, a big thanks to the G.I. Joe fans out there who helped spread the word, and thanks to Jon Chu himself for directing us to the right place. This new era of Social Media is such an awesome thing, and it feels great to be able to have a somewhat direct interaction with the folks behind the scenes. Too cool.
Everyone rest up this weekend, we may be in for an explosive day on Monday (if not before!)
