'G.I. Joe' gets new marching orders, moves to 2013

G.I. Joe won't be going into action on the big-screen this summer, after all.

'G.I. Joe' gets new marching orders, moves to 2013

The Hollywood Reporter says Paramount Pictures yanked its sequel 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' from its June release date and rescheduled the movie for March next year.

While it's not uncommon for studios to shuffle opening dates, it is rare for such a big-budget movie to get the bump so close to its release.

Paramount executives told the Reporter the move was made so the studio would have time to convert 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' into a digital 3-D version.

Action films often get most of their revenue from 3-D showings, which cost a few dollars more per ticket and can boost a movie's prospects to make its money back.
