The action movie that revitalized the G.I. Joe franchise drops today. Zechs fills you in on which version to buy.
So, G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits the open market today on DVD and Blu-Ray (though it has been out for two weeks streaming). What you may not know is various stores are doing different variants. Most contain the same special features (save one: Best Buy. More on that soon). However, when it comes to wanting just the 3D version your options are only Amazon (which will have the combo online) and Target (for retail). If you're looking for a version with a really sweet cover than you'll want the one Wal-Mart is selling which is a steelbook cover:
However, if you're truly looking for the ultimate experience with the movie with the most special features; you're going to have to get the Best Buy version. Not only does it include the everything the other versions have, it also includes EVEN MORE scenes deleted from the movie (an additional thirteen minutes). However, these scenes are reincorporated back into the movie in an extended cut.
The only downside to this, is the digtal copy on the disc is the regular version, not the extended cut. No word of when the extended cut will have a bigger release. So for now if you want to see this version, well, your only place to get it is Best Buy.
With that I leave you with the reason I will be purchasing this movie:
