Good news for fans of IMAX, 3D and G.I. Joe: Retaliation has arrived. With the sequel poised to hit theaters in March, Paramount Pictures is really getting the word out there with a 4-minute 3D preview that will play in front of all IMAX 3D and regular theatrical 3D showings of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which hits theaters today (read Jeremy's review right here). So if you're bold enough to see the bloody, R-rated action fantasy, you'll get some ninja action flying at your face. Plus, IMAX announced the film will hit the big big screen for just one week starting March 29th (or March 28th around the world).
“Dwayne Johnson has resonated well with IMAX fans, and we believe his strong global appeal, coupled with the action spectacle of G.I. Joe: Retaliation in IMAX 3D is sure to excite moviegoers,” said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. Translation: Dwayne Johnson is a big star, tons of people will see him on any size screen, and we want more money along with Paramount Pictures. And supposedly there's not anymore Channing Tatum than was originally intended before the film was delayed for the 3D conversion, so Johnson is the hero here. Will you see the G.I. Joe: Retaliation preview?
