G.I. Joe madness!

05.07.2008

G.I. JOE

Update: Forgot to mention that MTV also has Channing Tatum as Duke. Check it out HERE.

Not too long ago, we premiered the first official look at the delectable Rachel Nichols as Scarlett (with USA Today debuting Snake Eyes before that) in the upcoming G.I. JOE feature and today the internets has been flooded with first official looks at a few other key players in the film. Let's see if we can sort this all out:

The IESB premiered the first look at Christopher Eccleston as the nefarious Destro, Comingsoon.net got first dibs on Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as the massive gun wielding Heavy Duty, IGN landed a peek at a surprisingly sexy Sienna Miller as Baroness, Dark Horizons scored a first glimpse at Sad Taghmaoui as Breaker, Collider hit us with a little Dennis Quaid as General Hawk and Latino Review slipped in some Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow. Whew!

Click on the smaller pics below to check out their respective full, high res versions. G.I. JOE does battle with COBRA August 7th of next year.

Destro, G.I. Joe Heavy Duty, G.I. Joe

Baroness, G.I. Joe Breaker, G.I. Joe

General Hawk, G.I. Joe Storm Shadow, G.I. Joe

Extra Tidbit: The film had a fake working title of DARK SKY: FIRST STRIKE.

Bah!

I can't believe that things still and always will look the same in movies. Those silly plastic shoulder pads and random floating metal (I guess they're supposed to be metal or armor or something) pieces always look the same no matter what it is. These characters look like throw away baddies in Metal Gear Solid or some straight to DVD movie.

It'll be forgotten quicker than it came and it'll be another dead franchise buried with AVP and the likes.

Oh well at least this is one boring

Oh well at least this is one boring pro-war propaganda flick I won't have to see.

Storm Shadow

I've liked most of the images so far - although with Sommers directing it is sure to suck ass. Storm Shadow looks like a dork though. Where is the Cobra insignia? Why is he wearing a long coat?

After these pics...

...I'm not very excited about this film. Looks a little cheesy, even Roger Corman-ish. What's the budget, $5 million? I'll wait for the trailer to decide.

I thought this was for GI Joe pics....

This is a joke right? I mean all of them look crappy, I was excited when I saw snake eyes, but now, they're all snake eyes without the mask. This is just stupid.

Yeah, uh, these look kinda like crap to me... some worse than others. But the biggest problem... what's with everybody wearing the same friggin' costume?! All black, all the time! These characters were, to me, differentiated mostly by their very distinctive costumes. Yeah, they each had different jobs, but their costumes were a LARGE part of WHO THEY WERE! Sticking everybody in the same black outfit just ain't G.I.Joe!

I don't mind some liberties, but this might as well be just any

I don't mind some liberties, but this might as well be just any old (campy) military movie with the G.I.Joe names slapped on as an homage, or a nod to the characters we used to love.

Not to mention that a lot of the G.I.Joe costumes looked believably like military uniforms (with some modifications); and the ones they're using here look like they're from a sci-fi movie. If they absolutely have to abandon the signature look of the characters, they should at LEAST make the costumes look realistically military. I don't care HOW special a unit of the military you're in, you don't wear stuff like this!

Yeah, ya know what this is?! It's those cheesy, generic Joe rip-off soldiers that came in a 4-pack, who all had the same costumes; the ones your grandma got ya because she didn't know the difference between them and real G.I.Joes! That's what this is; it isn't G.I.Joe.

And I agree 100% with Mr. Boejangles, when he said, "AND I DONT CARE how stupid it looks, destro better have a metal head!"
Truly, because when you think Destro, what do you think of? The metal head. That's it! The metal head! He's not Destro without it! Period.

I don't feel good about this movie. And it wouldn't be a big deal if G.I.Joe wasn't the best thing EVER when we were kids! I'd prefer they don't make the movie, rather than get it wrong. They already failed to do Transformers justice, and now they're doin' the same to G.I.Joe.

For fucks sake, open your eyes. This is being done by the same moron that directed Van Helsing. G.I. Joe looks too cheesy. This movie will receive very low ratings. You'll see.

I know, I'm just singling out the girls here, but I thought Rachel Nichols was the hottest thing in this movie. But, Sienna Miller is friggin' smokin'.

DUKE?

Is there any reason Duke's pic that MTV has isn't up with the rest of the crew? (not that he's that awesome but still Duke is Duke)

IDK, i wouldn't shit all over this film just yet. Didn't we all think at one point Iron Man would suck and it ended up being the pwnage?

typing 101

I need to learn how to type faster, I was thinking the same thing. I'm getting a very Jean Claude as Guile feel from the Dennis Quaid pic.

Baroness

Damn, I was hoping they'd make her look a little less like a vixen, and a little more like a scary office-babe. But it'll have to do.
Ok, so we've seen the cast, and their expensive costumes. Now I want to see a teaser, or trailer. I want a REAL sample of the quality of this movie. These pictures just aren't getting me excited.
Frikkin' Habsro and their cash cows!!!!!
Now I'm anxious to see the toys for this movie.

Y'know, as cheesy as this movie will probably be, I just can't help but be a little psyched about it. I keep hearing my inner child scream "YO JOE!!!" So far the characters look pretty damn cool. I just wish they would have shown Destro with his mask on.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes

Storm Shadow with mask and Baroness with glasses should satisfy all the purists out there.

I'm liking these
