In May, just over a month before its scheduled June 29 release, Paramount moved Retaliation to March 29, 2013, with the studio citing a decision to convert the film to 3D.
But THR reported at the time that studio insiders were concerned with other issues, including the poor performance of Universal’s Battleship (also based on a Hasbro toy line) and a desire to expand the role of Channing Tatum, who was killed in the original version. His character could potentially be resurrected by the time the film hits theaters.
