An embargo lifts, and the G.I. Joe: Retaliation set visit dam busts open

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!
