This. Bad call by Hasbro, or whoever's in charge of this. 3D is nothing but a useless gimmick designed to make movies cost twice as much.
Like it or not, 3d does bring in a bbigger audeince than non 3D flixs. So there is an audience.

- Panic due to Battleship sinking. (Pun intended.)
- Competing with The Avengers.
Panic of Battleships failure maybe, but it doesn't have anything to do with the avengers. By the time G.I. joe came out, the Avengers would more than likely not been in theaters, and if it was, would have limited showings. G.I. Joe wouldn't have been directly competing with it.

That won't happen. Apparently the movie wasn't testing well and they're shooting new scenes; namely working a way in that Duke survives the desert ambush.
I can believe it not testing well. I mean the directors only prior experiance was the Justin bebier movie and some other musical type movie. So it can be expected that he might have fallen short in an action flick. That sucks cause it did look good in the previews, but so did Battleship.
