What’s On Joe Mind, “live” from the red carpet in London, our representatives Dave Tree (from Roll Out Roll Call and All the Cool Stuff) and Russell Sheath (contributor to Aint It Cool News) talk to DJ Cotrona, Elodie Yung, cover the Press Conference and sit down with Director Jon M. Chu himself!
An exclusive and intimate talk with the G.I. Joe: Retaliation director reveals some cool details about a potential directors’ cut of the DVD and possible content that was not in the final cut of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film! This thrilling special edition is live now on Podbean as well as embedded below.
As of late, when most of us think of Retaliation and the color red, we think of how much of a knock out Adrianne Palicki looks in that red dress she is seen wearing in the trailers. Well, red means something else when it comes to worldwide premiere’s of movies, it means the RED CARPET. We Paramount UK afforded an opportunity for our man in the UK, Dave Tree, to attend the premiere and get a spot on the side of the carpet, we couldn’t pass it up. Throw in an exclusive interview with Director Jon M. Chu, and it is a DONE DEAL! WOJM is red carpet bound. Check this show out as Justin and Gary comment on the movie and interviews, all the while throwing coverage back to London for updates from the premiere party. Music, ninjas and celebs abound! This is a CAN’T MISS special – once in a lifetime – edition of WOJM!
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is right around the corner… only mere days away! The lucky folks over in London actually got their red carpet premiere last week, and both GeneralsJoes and the What’s on Joe Mind podcast were fortunate enough to have some representatives at the London premiere.
Dave Tree from All the Cool Stuff and Russ Sheath, contributor to Aint It Cool News both very kindly offered to cover the event on our behalf, and they knocked the ball out of the friggen park! Hitting the red carpet, recording the press conference, and even getting a face-to-face interview with director Jon M Chu!
Most of the audio coverage from the red carpet and press conference event is now posted in audio format on Special Edition #26 of What’s on Joe Mind, but the interview with Jon Chu can be read below. This is was a fantastic opportunity for both the podcast and this website, and we greatly appreciate Paramount, Mr. Chu, and of course Dave and Russ for getting this all together for us. We are infinitely grateful for everyone’s participation and willingness to work with us.

Coming down the home stretch, and we’re officially less than a week from the film’s launch, but Twitziller is still going strong, breaking down reason #6 to go see G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Twitziller covered Cobra Commander in an earlier entry, but as Rise of Cobra clearly showed, Cobra Commander can exist without his battle helmet… but he’s not nearly as damn cool. I could almost hear the collective geek out across the entire Joe fandom when this version of Cobra Commander was revealed for the first time in a trailer so many months ago. Ever since, G.I. Joe fans have clung on every small appearance in a trailer, image, TV spot or character profile. This battle helmet is a big reason why.
This morning brings us even more exciting video from the production of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, this time in the form of a 14 minute long behind the scenes video. Mingled among this video is plenty of scenes from the film itself. I would warn against watching this too much for folks who are avoiding spoilers, but for folks like me who are just sucking these things up, it’s a pretty excellent 14 minute experience.
