There’s been some hubbub about the G.I. Joe: Retaliation release date (yes, even above and beyond that pesky 9 month delay). The initial release date was March 29th, which is next Friday. Then trailers and TV Spots started mentioning March 28th, and I think most folks (myself included) assumed that meant late night showings for the 29th premiere.
Then scattered mentions of March 27th started spreading out there, and I confirmed with a few theaters in my area that the film would actually be released on March 27th.
But, wait. That’s not all. I hit up Fandango pretty regularly to see when local showings are, and as of yesterday evening, I was able to purchase a ticket for a 7:00pm show on March 26th. Other GeneralsJoes readers are confirming the information. So if you’re as excited as I am to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation in theaters, I strongly recommend you hit up your favorite theater’s website, or Fandango.com and check that release date. You may get your G.I. Joe: Retaliation fix even earlier than originally suspected.
Heck, we’ve waited nine months, I’ll gladly jump at the chance to catch it a couple of days early!
Just dropping a quick line to let everyone know that I have notified the winners of the Fandango Gift Card give away, and have already processed the orders through Fandango.com. The cards should be on their way! If you did not receive a congratulatory email from me, then assume that you did not win, I’m sorry… better luck next time! I was pleasantly surprised at how many folks dug out the right answers.
If you didn’t win, there’s still time to grab one yourself from Fandango.com! They have some great character-based designs. If you’re going to see the film anyway, might as well end up with a cool G.I. Joe: Retaliation collectible while you’re at it, right?
Check ’em out at Fandango.com.
You read that right! GeneralsJoes and site supporter Gyre-Viper want to send you to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation… on us! Starting today and running through Friday, March 15th, I have opened a contest to win a free Fandango Gift Card to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
It’s really easy, all you have to do is answer five relatively simple questions. The answers to all five questions can be found on GeneralsJoes.com somewhere. They might be in a reviews section, they might be in a Dio-Story, or they might be in one of the SuperPages, but they shouldn’t be all that tricky to find, it just requires a little searching.
The official rules and regulations can be found on the Fandango Gift Card Contest Page!
Good luck and Yo Joe!
