In a surprising move, Paramount Pictures has delayed the release of their upcoming GI JOE Retaliation until March 29, 2013, a full nine months after its originally planned release date of June 29th.

Part of the postponement allows for the film to undergo a full 3D conversion.

"It is increasingly evident that 3D resonates with movie-goers globally and together with Paramount, we made the decision to bring fans an even more immersive entertainment experience," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's President and CEO in an official statement.

The new date puts the sequel up against Andrew Niccol's adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's The Host

Starring D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson,GI Joe Retaliation is directed by Jon M. Chu.

In the sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within thegovernment that jeopardize their very existence.

This is very surprising news indeed. I honestly was more excited to watch the new G.I. Joe over Amazing Spider-Man, hopefully this means the movie will turn out for the better...
