Paramount has two Hasbro movies coming out over the next few years, the release dates for which were pushed back today. The third G.I. Joe movie will move from spring to fall 2020 and the Micronauts movie has moved from 2020 to 20211.
Deadline reports the new dates for the two movies based on Hasbro toys are now G.I. Joe on Oct. 16, 2020 and Micronauts on June 4, 2021.
When it comes to the G.I. Joe franchise, this is the third different time of the year that Paramount has released a movie for the famed toyline. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra came out late summer, with a release date of Aug. 7, 2009 . G.I. Joe: Retaliation was a spring release on March 28, 2013.
Now, the third movie will hit theaters seven years later with a pre-Halloween release date. Dwayne Johnson was a newcomer to the second movie. Word in 2016 was that the movie was delayed due to his schedule. That all changed when Paramount decided to make the next G.I. Joe movie about Snake Eyes.
Micronauts was originally going to hit theaters on Oct. 16, so, since G.I. Joe moved into that spot, Micronauts was moved to June 4, 2021, which could be a prime month for the movie at the start of summer vacation.
Snake Eyes hits theaters on Oct. 16, 2020. It's directed by Robert Schwentke of the Divergent sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant. The film will follow Snake Eyes' journey to Japan for training and his eventually joining the G.I. Joe team.
