Last week sometime after G.I. Joe: Retaliation opened strong, Paramount Studios decided to sort-of greenlight a sequel. This shouldn’t surprise any of us, but knowing that there will be a third G.I. Joe film is saddening and frightening. I absolutely hated Retaliation and I cannot believe that audiences are reacting to it positively.
I’m no snobby action fan, just look at my continuous support of films like Punisher: War Zone, Dredd or Olympus Has Fallen. Sometimes studios make strong action pictures and sometimes they get lazy and stop caring and churn out shit like G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
The film has been doing good business both domestically and overseas, so expect more of the same to hit theaters in a couple years.
No other details have been revealed at this time.
