Paramount Home Media Distribution's G.I. Joe: Retaliation Lands On July 30

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Paramount Home Media Distribution has 121.9 million good reasons to select July 30 as the street date for the three-SKU product offering of director Jon M. Chu’s all-action, all-star hit, G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

$121.9 million is the box office haul for this sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra … the ARR for this three-SKU package works out to 123 days.

Paramount will give consumers three options for adding this action thriller to their home entertainment libraries.   There will be a stand-alone DVD, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and a 3D/2D Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack — both Blu-ray selections include UltraViolet.

Betrayal, a president with a hidden agenda and a worldwide nuclear showdown are just the starters for this Dwayne Johnson/Bruce Willis good guys versus (very) bad guys action flick.   Fans will not be disappointed, especially with Adrianne Palicki as the kick-butt eye-candy member of the group — who can more than take care of herself — as well as some unexpected allies joining The Joes to put things right.

Joe: The Rise of Cobra, etc.), plus deleted scenes and no less than eight production featurettes, including one titled “The Lone Soldiers” and a second titled “Mission Briefing.”

On the TV-on-DVD release front the focus has now turned to the post-Labor Day period for the next round of fan-favorites to make their way to the home entertainment market place.
