The real reason they did the reshoots (but will not admit it) was the rise of Channing Tatum's stardom. He was shunned as Duke in the first movie so speculation (as evident from the first trailers last year) was that he was killed at the beginning of the movie. He most probably had that minor role to fulfill his contract with Paramount similar to Marden for X-men Last Stand. So...kill him off! But a funny thing happened on the way of the test screenings.  Tatum was absent despite being the lead in first one and his star power status went up. I'm positive the execs saw this and said "WTF, bring him back"

I noticed the newer trailers now have more Duke and in different settings. Don't be surprised if some of his action sequences are not with the cast members as they probably couldn't get all of them.

That's one theory.

Habro/Paramount also had Battleship last summer which flopped and didn't want another box office letdown. Usually late summer, the box office numbers go down. Not only that but March movies now sometimes get bigger takes than summer movies (see Alice in Wonderland, Hunger Games, Oz). So why not push it back?

I'm just glad to see Hama got the respect and liked the movie. His review is pretty honest unlike Stan Lee who thinks every Marvel movie is fantastic.

I have my ticket bought for Wednesday night. :)
