New G.I. Joe: Retaliation poster is a glorious Photoshop mash up of awesome

I remember it like it was yesterday…an entire day of G.I. Joe: Retaliation character poster reveals, sending G.I. Joe webmasters scattering across the interwebz tracking them all down and collecting them all together.

Okay, maybe that was just me:

Well, with March 27th quickly looming before us, we have a brand-spanking new G.I. Joe: Retaliation poster!  Using many of the images from previous posters (including some of the character ones above), a bad ass Cobra symbol in the background, and a peek at the Cobra helicopter from the film, this new poster is pretty neat.  Digital Spy was the first to reveal it, though the larger version mirrored below came from Yahoo Movies.

Yo Joe!

More on set images from G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Courtesy of set photographer Jaimie Trueblood, we have some more images from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and some really nice ones here.  Featuring heavy doses of Roadblock with Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes, and an incredible shot of Cobra Commander.

Check out the photographer’s site right here, and thanks to Kenny2274 on Twitter and TheGabrielAngel at for the info.

What’s on Joe Mind Special Edition Lucky #13 – The Retaliation Event

You ever have one of those days?  Yeah, I think pretty much the entire G.I. Joe fandom yesterday had one of those days.  When I got the text message from Gary last night about possibly recording a special edition, I’ll admit, I was hesitant, as I think he was, too.  We both felt like we’d been kicked in the nards, and I don’t think either one of us was much in the mood to talk about it.

But then Twitter came to the rescue…  the Tweets, emails, PM’s, and text messages started flooding in…Joe fans who wanted to talk it out.  Admins of websites who wanted to talk about this.  Wanted an immediate reaction.  So, we decided what the hell.  Gathering together a veritable “who’s who” of site administrators, G.I. Joe fans, elitists podcasters, and even some industry professionals, we took to Skype and gave it to you raw.

Full credit goes to Gary Godsoe who burned the midnight oil, spending hours after we were done recording getting the audio processed and online, pretty much raw and unedited.  I will admit…it was cathartic.  It was a huge help to me in figuring out where Paramount was coming from and what we should look towards moving forward to March, 2013, and I want to personally thank everyone who joined us.

Now, don’t think this is the end!  We are taking your voice mail messages as well in preparation for our normal recording next week.  We want to hear from YOU. Let your voices be heard concerning yesterday’s movie news. For our next episode we are going to feature YOUR voicemails. All you have to do is call in and share your thoughts. Please AT LEAST tell us your first name and PLEASE keep your messages no worse than a PG-13 rating. We reserve the right not to air any hostile or vulgar messages. (262) 515-9656

As of the recording last night we had already received almost two dozen voicemails, and obviously we can’t play them all, but we will choose some best of the best and share your raw emotion as we discuss what this means for the brand.  No worries, this is a story we will be talking about for a long, long time.  As usual, you can hit up our Podbean page to check out last night’s special edition, or check out the embedded player below.  Some brief show notes as always after the jump.

More G.I. Joe: Retaliation International trailers reveal even more new footage

The G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer barrage continues as Movie Web has posted a pair of G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailers that have hit internationally, and they have some new footage! It’s not considerable, but there is definitely some new stuff included in these trailers below.

Check them out at Movie Web, or embedded video below via YouTube.

Two potential endings for G.I. Joe: Retaliation being test screened?

Thanks to GeneralsJoes Twitter buddy and host of the General Geekery podcast NFC JD for passing along word that apparently there are two working endings for G.I. Joe: Retaliation being test-screened for select crowds.

It is currently unknown what is the difference between the two endings, but Nuke the Fridge reports that this is indeed occurring.

There were also rumors of a similar thing happening in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra…  in fact, I believe Steven Sommers mentioned in the director’s commentary that a few elements were changed at the last minute with the first film.  At one point, Storm Shadow admitted to Snake Eyes that he didn’t kill the Hard Master just before Snake Eyes stabbed him and dropped him into below zero arctic waters…apparently that scene was determined to be too extreme, considering Snake Eyes was a “good guy” and the dialogue was dropped.

Secondly, there were rumors that both Cobra Commander and Destro were supposed to escape, but test audience reaction was so strong that the film was reshot to show the two Cobra leaders indeed being captured.  It would be interesting to know what the difference in the two endings might be this time around. Check out the information on Nuke the Fridge.

My only question is, who is being invited to these things and how the hell do I get on that list?

Aerosmith will provide song for G.I. Joe: Retaliation film

We haven’t heard any information about an official soundtrack of anything for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but apparently Aerosmith is providing a track for the film, according to Steven Tyler and

The song is called Legendary Children and was supposedly originally recorded in conjunction with Aerosmith’s 1993 album “Get a Grip”.  According to both Tyler and guitarist Brad Whitford, the song will debut on American Idol at some point in May.

More news on this as it develops.

Trio of new G.I. Joe: Retaliation images revealed

The real source of these images is a bit cloudy, but according to Cosmic Book News, the images come from Kino Gallery which is a Russian photo gallery site, and may be tied into the Russian Movie Expo which was very recently held.

These three new images feature Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, Elodie Young as Jinx, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock.  Check out the mirrored images below.

Henry Jackman will score G.I. Joe: Retaliation

This news initially hit late last month, but for some reason it slipped by my radar.  Thanks to Twitter follower ToyCollector962 for linking me to a source and reminding me about it!  Henry Jackman, who wrote the score for X-Men: First Class last year will also be scoring G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

The information can be found at Film Score Reporter.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Daytona 500 TV Spot Screencap Gallery

It’s a tradition unlike any other!  No, not the Daytona 500 itself, the dissection of the latest G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer or TV spot via screencap gallery!

Like all the other trailers and TV spots, I ran this one through the ole software and pulled apart lots of great screen grabs, so big thanks to for uploading in HD!  Not a whole lot of new stuff.  Some clearer images (compared to yesterday’s TV spot) and a few new details.  Love the shot of the Ripsaw jumping into the air.  Also love the little touch like what appears to be a Cobra logo lapel pin on the Secret Service Agent who Colton is whipping the ass of.  Little attentions to detail like that are very cool.

Also a scene with Zartan as The President possibly talking to…the REAL president?  Tough to tell, but almost seems like it.  Good stuff.  Check out the images below, and as always, these will be mirrored on the G.I. Joe: Retaliation SuperPage.
