This Scene Was Cut From the New GI Joe Movie

GijoeIf you were one of the many people who helped catapult G.I. Joe: Retaliation to a $100 million worldwide dollar box office take this weekend, you probably don't remember the scene above. That's because the bar scene in which Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson and a shirtless D.J. Cotrona appear was cut from the final version of the film.

Buzzfeed explains:

Director Jon M. Chu told me that the bar scene with Tatum, Cotrona, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was cut and re-shot early last year — before the film's release date was pushed from June 2012 to this weekend — without Cotrona because it wasn't successfully conveying the warmth of the relationship between Tatum and Johnson's characters. "It was more plot-driven," Chu said. "It didn't set the tone right for movie. We wanted something a little more jokey." So out went Cotrona, and in went a scene of Tatum and Johnson bonding while playing a military videogame. With their shirts on.
