Over the past several weeks, multiple reports had referenced that the G.I. Joe: Retaliation home release would involve a special “Extended Cut” edition on Blu-Ray.
Several pre-orders had emerged, mostly through foreign sources at Amazon.uk, Amazon.de, and Best Buy Canada. Paramount just sent an official announcement for the G.I. Joe: Retaliation home release, and included in that announcement is confirmation that a Best Buy exclusive will be the special “Extended Action Cut”!
Sources are revealing that this will involve almost an extra 20 minutes of footage, including the bar scene that was shown in several trailers, as well as other extended action sequences and dialogue. You might want to say it was the movie Jon Chu planned to make.
With an extra 20 minutes of footage, I suspect G.I. Joe fans will be rushing to their local Best Buy stores as soon as this bad boy is released, I know I’m extremely excited to see what’s new. Check out the image of the Paramount Announcement below:
