As trailers, PSA’s or featurettes come close to airing, they need to be classified equal or less than the film or item they precede. The Alberta Film Ratings site is notorious for posting these classifications publicly, which can provide some insight into when to expect some of these items to hit the air.
One of the latest items to be classified, is entitled G.I. Joe: Retaliation Featurette, and it appears on the site with a PG rating and clocking in at just under four minutes. The content of the featurette itself is unknown, but this site has pretty close to 100% reliability when it comes to predicting these things.
UD Replicas is a company that specializes in custom leather motorcycle wear using film properties as an inspiration. They can be actual wearable items, or collectibles, designed to reflect your favorite properties straight from the motion picture screen. Carrying massive licenses like Avengers and Batman, UD Replicas will also be doing product from both G.I. Joe: Retaliation and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Items include Cobra Commander’s bad ass leather jacket, the Baroness’ trench coat, and a cool battle vest from the sequel film.
Good to see some more third party G.I. Joe love in the artwork world, and Acid Free Gallery has been knocking it out of the park. We saw their excellent Baroness print a short while ago as well as Scarlett, and now, we get a preview of the upcoming Duke and Snake Eyes prints!
At least according to the Twitter account UK Film Premieres, which seems to be legitimate from what I can tell. According to this Tweet, the G.I. Joe: Retaliation UK film premier will hit in February, 2013 and will have Bruce Willis, Channing Tatum, and Adrianne Palicki in attendance.
Obviously this hasn’t been officially announced by Paramount yet, but some quick research of past Tweets from this account seem to indicate a level of legitimacy, so we’ll go with it for now.
And with a sudden jolt, you realize just how close we are to the release of the film. Under 90 days until it hits American theaters. Holy wow!
I can’t quite properly express the joy I have when the newest issue of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero by IDW is released… and that day is right around the corner! Any issue that features old school Falcon, Leatherneck, and Spirit on the cover has got to be a good one. Check out the preview for the latest issue below.

JOE, COBRA and even Darklon himself—in mortal danger! The clock starts ticking in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #186!
