G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Set Visit Preview

     January 23, 2013


Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes are locked in battle atop a snowy cold mountain.  Somehow Storm Shadow has gotten the upper hand and he’s got Snake Eyes pinned to the ground.  Try as he might, Snake Eyes can’t escape.  While they’ve battled many times, they’re always equally matched, and it’s hard for either to get the upper hand.  But not this time.  On this day, it looks like Strom Shadow is finally going to win.  But as he applies even more force with seething anger in his eyes, all of a sudden, Jinx appears from behind and she’s got some sort of breathing device that she puts on his nose and mouth, and a second later, Storm Shadow falls unconscious.  I then hear director Jon M. Chu call cut.

But let me back up a second.

When G.I. Joe: Retaliation was filming in New Orleans, I got to visit the set with a few other online reporters.  While there we got to watch a ton of filming, see some footage, and speak with Chu, Byung-Hun Lee (Storm Shadow), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Elodie Yung (Jinx), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), DJ Cotrona (Flint), and Ray Stevenson (Firefly), and producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.  Hit the jump for more.

Joe fan, I promise you’ll be happy.

So until then, yesterday Christina got to attend a Joe event at Paramount where she saw some footage from the movie and spoke with Jon Chu and Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.  Click the links for what they had to say.

Finally, here’s the recent trailer in case you haven’t seen it.
