HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Called "a stunning, high-flying, super-charged blast of fun" (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV), the $355+ million worldwide blockbuster  G.I. JOE: RETALIATION explodes onto Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand July 30, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  Based on Hasbro's popular G.I. JOE brand, the film will be available on Digital two weeks early on July 16th.  "Born to play a G.I. JOE" (Scott Bowles, USA Today), Dwayne Johnson embodies ROADBLOCK and he and Channing Tatum "are a match made in action flick heaven" (James Oster, JoBlo.com) in this "cool ride" (Richard Corliss, Time) that is "awesome times 10!" (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV).  From Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, G.I. JOE: RETALIATION also stars action legend Bruce Willis as the original G.I. JOE, as well as Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona and Jonathan Pryce.  In director Jon M. Chu's heart-pounding thrill ride, the G.I.
