Two potential endings for G.I. Joe: Retaliation being test screened?

Thanks to GeneralsJoes Twitter buddy and host of the General Geekery podcast NFC JD for passing along word that apparently there are two working endings for G.I. Joe: Retaliation being test-screened for select crowds.

It is currently unknown what is the difference between the two endings, but Nuke the Fridge reports that this is indeed occurring.

There were also rumors of a similar thing happening in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra…  in fact, I believe Steven Sommers mentioned in the director’s commentary that a few elements were changed at the last minute with the first film.  At one point, Storm Shadow admitted to Snake Eyes that he didn’t kill the Hard Master just before Snake Eyes stabbed him and dropped him into below zero arctic waters…apparently that scene was determined to be too extreme, considering Snake Eyes was a “good guy” and the dialogue was dropped.

Secondly, there were rumors that both Cobra Commander and Destro were supposed to escape, but test audience reaction was so strong that the film was reshot to show the two Cobra leaders indeed being captured.  It would be interesting to know what the difference in the two endings might be this time around. Check out the information on Nuke the Fridge.

My only question is, who is being invited to these things and how the hell do I get on that list?

  1. My town had a test screening for Paranormal Activity, I found out about it through a radio ad, and it was a PAID test Screening, which was cool that I got paid to watch a movie, there was a questionnaire sheet which we all had to fill out, I don’t how different studios do their screenings but it is very cool to both see a film earlier than it’s release date and it’s AWESOME to get paid to do it!

  2. in one ending RoadRock pins cobra commander…..the other involves destro coming from under the ring and hitting roadRock with a chair…while, of course, the ref is being distracted by baroness…..commander gets the pin.

    no, i really dont know.

  3. Honestly i know people dont like channing tatum as duke but if the make his character more likeable then everything should be fine besides Duke is the main chracter and the main joe you cant just kill him off and turn it into a roadblock movie
