The other day I was passing time between power squat sets by watching the last season of Workaholics, and I completely forgot that in the episode that Anders’ dad comes to visit, the lovable f*cked up trio has tickets to go see GI Joe: Retaliation. That didn’t make sense, of course, because Paramount pushed the film back from the summer to next year, because the film needed some re-shoots. Oh, and also because people were hella pissed that Channing Tatum dies in the beginning. Not cool, Paramount.
Now that the re-shoots are over – remember, we gave you the exclusive first storyboard – it’s safe to assume that Paramount and director Jon Chu did everything possible to make it look like C-Tates doesn’t actually die, because – and this is just pure speculation – they’ll probably pay him a metric ass ton of cash to star in GI Joe: Duke Sav3s Da Rec C3nta. And that prediction makes sense, because C-Tates has already proven that he’s an A-lister with three films earning north of $100 million each this year, so natural progression would suggest that he’s in line for a $20 million payday.
But I’m twerkin’ way ahead of myself this morning. The point is that GI Joe: Retaliation has a new international trailer, and Paramount absolutely made it look like C-Tates maybe possibly doesn’t die.
