BNAT 14 G. I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer Information

"Ain't it Cool News" website's annual film marathon Butt-Numb-A-Thon (also known as BNAT) had something to share with the G. I. Joe Live Action Movie Fans. At the 14th BNAT held last 8th and 9th December, 2012 the festival aired a Trailer from G. I. Joe: Retaliation.

The trailer contained the famous Mountain Scene which we revealed spoiler filled info not too long ago. However, the highlight of the trailer was the 3D Conversion, says Ain't it Cool News. You can read more about it, after the jump. But, mind you… Spoilers!

This new trailer may have been the G. I. Joe: Retaliation Theatrical Trailer #3 revealed by Alberta Film Classifications.

Spoilers!

"We saw a new 3D trailer for RETALIATION, and it looked about as good as it expected to, with all sorts of metal stars and pieces of swords flying at the screen. But the best thing about it was the scene where Snake Eyes makes his way into the enemy compound to capture Storm Shadow. We get ninjas flying from mountainsides on cables, shurikens flying at the camera to be dispatched with automatic gunfire, a duel between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, all in 3D, and it looked amazing. I don't know how good GIJOE RETALIATION will be, but it sure looked fun."

Bad Ass Digest also mentioned the sequence:
"Next we saw the theatrical trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which was more of the awesome same, and then a sequence of ninjas fighting on a mountainside that was honestly breathtaking. It's so foolhardy of me to be excited about a movie this long in the making, but dammit if that footage didn't make me excited."

Description by Film.com
"It began in a hallway, with Storm Shadow throwing ninja stars at Snake Eyes. It looks pretty fabulous in 3-D (even post-converted 3-D) but not as fabulous as Snake Eyes shooting down the ninja stars with a machine gun.

The two fight in a hallway, then crash through a window. They are on a mountain top, at some sort of temple. Snake Eyes is joined by Jinx (I think that’s Jinx – who’s the one in the tight yellow suit? I’m not 13 years old anymore) and suddenly they are confronted by a bunch of baddies. They do what anyone would do: they jump off the mountain.

The killer moment is when they zip across cables up in the mountains, but not down them – they basically hook and jump like Spider-Man, pretty much how you played with your G.I. Joes as a kid. Then everybody swings around on the side of the mountain throwing swords at each other.

The trailer afterwards was terrific, too. The best is when Bruce Willis says to the Rock “I have something your size” and they cut to giant tank. Yay explosions."

So we know that a part of the movie will look good.
skinny:
I do hope they keep the "let's throw stuff at the audience" 3D to a minimum. It is too bad that they didn't get to film it in 3D to start with, with a sceenplay written for 3D.

At least the reviewer was positive.
Now
bring on theatrical trailer number 3.

what?!?
AlleyViper47:
these GI Joe movies focus too much on Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow... I know everyone loves Ninjas but I think they take away from the original concept of GI JOE the American Soldier. It's also becoming the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ish. I guess my point is I hope they bring in the JOE and Cobra before this just becomes Ninja fest 2013. I'm still kinda disappointed Destro isn't in this and they messed up the Baroness. I kinda wish they would have just reboot the whole thing.

And I agree. I could care less about 3D.

I agree with this to an extent.

I'm fine with SE and SS being in it, but not when their story detracts from the overall movie.

Resolute lost so much time with the personal story between SE and SS which didn't need to be there.

Same with RoC. The flashbacks to SE/SS in training felt out of place and didn't really fit in with the rest of the movie. It was jarring, ruining the flow.


I'm afraid Retaliation will be the same way.

And reading the production notes that DESTRO posted, it sounds like there are two stories: Roadblock's and Snake Eyes. Hopefully Chu handles it well, but could really end up feeling like two incomplete movies.

So much this!

Snake-Eyes and Stormshadow the whole ninja group really have become the Boba Fett of G.I. Joe:( There are other characters on the Joe team and in Cobra.
teemu8:
this should suck....No Joe-retardation
Nightrain:
Will they be blowing another million to show it at SuperBowl?
BEAM:
I getthe feeling those sick of the SE/SS storyline will be disappointed in Retaliation. With Jinx, the Blind Master, and Red Ninja Clan, we're looking at 50% ninja action.

I thought the right balance was struck in Resolute and ROC. This may go overboard on ninjas but I'm willing to take the ride.

At least they're using real bullets this time.

wasnt that one of the many complaints in the test screening.
Stygian:
I'm sure the footage is awesome, but there is very little that Paramount is going to be able to do at this point to 'turn the titanic' in regaining the public's trust in this movie. Immediately when it was pulled from the schedule talk abounded that it was a steaming pile, the acting was terrible, they had to reshoot/re-edit the film to make it more readable as a narrative, and on and on. So, if you consider that 'Joe public' (pardon the pun) have already written the film off adding the 3D element isn't going to rewrite history and get that audience back and invested again. Major domo mistake.

You ask me they should have simply released as is, so as not to slow its momentum and/or engender negative talk. Doesn't mean this would have solved the films problems (if any exist), but sometimes a poor(er) movie is better than no movie at all. Joe 1 did well enough to garner a Joe 2 and it didn't have copious 3D, The Rock, or the death of Channing going for it. It simply was... and that was enough for most moviegoers, so why mess with the formula and screw with Joe 2's release schedule?

This is one of the reasons why 'exit polls' and audience research can destroy the heart and soul of a property. Legend has it Hasbro/Paramount researched with kids what they enjoyed the most about the first Joe movie and the ninja element took center stage. Unfortunately/fortunately this property is still viewed as 'for kids' (since the end goal is to not only sell movie tickets, but also toys), which means we adult collectors kinda get the shaft. Doesn't matter I suppose that we're the ones taking/not taking our kids to see Joe movies. I guess it's more important that the movie please its core demo, which again, appears to be the ankle biter set. So if you have anyone to thank for major amounts of Ninja action in Joe 2, it could be your 7 yr old's fault!

Great news!
YO JOE!

Anyone saying "I'm worried that there will be too much focus on Snake-Eyes/Storm Shadow" like it's some kind of new thing hasn't been paying much attention to this franchise for the last 25 years or so.

Snake-Eyes/Storm-Shadow and the ARAH incarnation of G.I. Joe are inextricable. You don't have to like it, but denying that it is the central personal conflict of the entire saga is flat-out denying reality. In other words, Snake-Eyes/Storm-Shadow IS the "heart and soul" of ARAH Joe, or at least a major component of it. Remove it, and it isn't ARAH Joe anymore.

Ironically enough, Rise of Cobra tried to mitigate this situation by making the Duke/Cobra Commander conflict a personal one rather than just "two guys who happen to be the leaders of their factions." Unfortunately between Tatum's non-performance and dragging the Baroness into the mix in a silly way it fell flat on its' face.

Also worth noting? Almost every quote from above was PRAISING the "ninja action." These are the perspectives of non-fans, folks....the people that they want to get to come see the movie (because despite all the bitching, most of our tickets are already sold), who they NEED to come see this movie for it to be a success. If a pile of Ninjas is what it takes to get this movie (and hopefully the toys along with it) over the top, then bring 'em on.

Could not agree more. Well said, my friend...

I dont know if I would call the "fine folks" at AICN nonfans per se. After all they are as proud of their geekdom and nerd heritage as I am.

Geeky doesn't automatically mean "G.I. Joe fan" though. Certainly not to the extent that those of us here are.

The point is that we, as an audience, are for the most part already guaranteed to go see the movie (not everyone, obviously, but yes...most of us). That's all well and good for the studio, but if we're the only ones that went, the movie would be a bomb to make John Carter look like Avatar by comparison.

That's why they need outside audiences, and from their research and the long history of the brand...outside audiences like hot Ninja-on-Ninja action.

Doesn't mean it will be a success, but they're trying to hedge their bets.
