As one might expect, it looks like Lady Jaye will be back for another round in the sequel to the 2013 smash hit G.I. Joe: Retaliation. It’s a bit curious because I cannot find a precise quote where she states this, but IGN.com posted an interview with the actress, and in the interview, the following reference is made:
“And that very well may be. Palicki’s turn as Lady Jaye in the successful G.I. Joe: Retaliation — she says she’ll be back for G.I. Joe 3 by the way — and her ability to handle stunt work means that she frequently gets scripts for similar films.”
Having just watched the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film again last night, I’m looking forward to the return, and hope that DJ Catrona’s Flint joins her as well. I think The Rock and Ray Park are safe bets, too. Pretty cool to start hearing things come together already. Again, check out IGN for the full run down.
Make sure to keep watching for all the latest and greatest G.I. Joe movie news!
Another character vignette has made its way online, courtesy of what appears to be a foreign YouTube channel. It’s a great minute long look at the Lady Jaye character with some great new footage featuring Lady Jaye herself and our first really good look at Agent Mouse!
Check it out embedded below. Thanks to Skinny from SerpentorsLair for the info.
Courtesy of Fandango.com we have a great new featurette showcasing all of the great hardware and instruments of destruction found within the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film universe. Interspersed between clips of said destruction, Jon Chu gives a bit of insight into production of the film and the use of certain iconic vehicles.
There is tons of great new vehicle footage throughout this featurette… some really incredible looking battle sequences between the Ripsaw, the HISS, and others. Wow. Wow wow wow. Check it out at Fandango.com, or it’s also embedded below.
These interviews aren’t normally the most exciting thing to look forward to for an upcoming film, but when they actually reveal some new footage, that’s a different story! UIPThailand has posted two video interviews up on YouTube, and there is actually some cool new footage mixed in amongst the questions and answers. We see some behind the scenes stuff and more!
With what happened last year with the sudden delay in release, I suspect many Joe fans were sitting on pins and needles a little bit waiting to make absolutely certain G.I. Joe: Retaliation would launch as planned March 28th. Lord knows I’ve seen plenty of jokes floating around about another delay…
Well, in Korea at least the worry has passed! The film premiere for G.I. Joe: Retaliation is set to run in Korea on March 11th, which is today. In fact right at this moment, it’s almost 10:00pm Korea time, so there may be folks there watching the movie right now. I’m jealous of these people.
As proof of the event, check out some of the press images below of the press conference and premiere Q & A.
Evidently Palicki is making the rounds. Shortly after appearing on The Couch this week, she was also interviewed by EW.com and much of the conversation (as you might expect) was focused around G.I. Joe: Retaliation. She spoke of training with real Navy SEALs, of Lady Jaye’s “chip on her shoulder” and also revealed a little bit about the reshoots:
“A lot of that was false: We did like two days of reshoots. They added one scene. It wasn’t really a big deal — it was like the normal reshooting situation. Actually we lucked out because it was only two days. But I think it adds to the film completely.”
It’s a short interview, but worth a read. Check it out at EW.com.
CBS Morning show “The Couch” had G.I. Joe: Retaliation co-star Adrianne Palicki on as a guest this morning, bringing some hard-edged bad ass to the soft and fuzzy morning show atmosphere. She only spoke for a few minutes about G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and there wasn’t a whole lot of information revealed, but it’s good to see some promotion happening. I anticipate this sort of stuff will really ramp up as we move forward towards the end of March.
Two of these TV Spots have been uploaded before… “Fist” and “Drive It” are both a couple of months old, but for whatever reason just showed up as re-uploaded to the G.I. Joe Movie YouTube Channel. I’m thinking they may be updated all of these TV Spots in 1080p, but I’m not sure.
Regardless, I’ll take whatever excuse I can to check out footage from the upcoming movie, and I’m thinking most of you will, too. Not only that, but a third TV spot entitled “Rock Solid” has now been uploaded as well. While the name is new, the footage is the same.
Oh, wait a minute. As was mentioned a couple of days ago, the release date of G.I. Joe: Retaliation has been changed (apparently) to March 28th. These TV Spots all reflect the changed release date, so evidently Paramount is uploading all of the old TV Spots again, with the new release date. Now it all makes sense.
Well, I’m here anyway, so here are those TV spots. Enjoy!
Continuing the Road to Retaliation! I think most folks have figured out my review formula now, where I typically save the best for last. That will likely tell you what I think about the Lady Jaye figure. While some folks have complained about paint applications on her face, I haven’t seen any real evidence of problems on mine. In fact, my Lady Jaye is all good. Really good.
As one might suspect with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the current WWE champion, and also the feature lead in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, it only makes sense for World Wrestling Entertainment to play some role in promoting the movie.
In fact, both Adrianne Palicki and DJ Cotrona were at the Elimination Chamber PPV on Sunday night, and also appeared in WWE Raw last night to promote G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Just how much this promotion will impact ticket sales is unknown, but with The Rock’s huge following (both within wrestling circles and outside of them) it can only help.
