New GI Joe poster

05.27.2009

So far all that's been seen of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander in GI JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA has been on leaked toys or trading cards. No official promotional material for the movie, whether it be stills or trailers, have even hinted at his persona. Until now. Empire has the first look at the international poster for the film and tucked away in the right corner is Commander himself. He's still in gas mask mode and not squid face mode so I assume that look changes halfway through the movie. Click the little preview pic below to see the full image at Empire...

Extra Tidbit: They removed Commander's signature hood for fear he'd look like a KKK leader.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the roles he chooses to play. But Cobra Commander? C'mon dude. You're better than that.

And the poster is pretty uninspiring too.

My problems:
1--Dennis Quaid isn't on the poster.
2--The Cobra slogan is lame.
3--...the poster is just "eh" in general.

No Hood?

Last I checked the KKK are known for wearing white hoods and I seem to remember Cobra's being blue. This movie is coming out too late and too short on authenticity for it's true fans. We're all over 30 now and know when something is gonna be shit. Fuck I'm old..I had a subcription to GI Joe! Anyone wanna buy a collection of 'em? LOL!

Seriously, I hope it's good.

Anyone think it is a little funny that in the top half of this poster there are: A. Three dudes with coverings over there noses and mouths.
B. A tremendous amount of what appears to be gas in the air.
C. A chick in the foreground with her ass in our face with an awkward smile.

Ugh!

I am so worried about this film. I mean Super Suits? Really? Cobra Commander without his hood? Really? What is it that is signature on a Cobra Snake? Its hood! So they don't want to piss some minorities off. Okay. What about his helmet? Put him in that then. I have a bad feeling about this movie. I hope I'm wrong though. But I think that Hollywood is systematically trying to destroy all of our childhoods. One movie at a time. Next thing you know they're going to have Voltron's

They're doing that crap too!

Bad Marketing

If the studio was smart they would market this with a propaganda approach. I remember the old "Cobra Wants You Posters". A live action version of that would be really cool.

Lame photoshop effort, Crappy tag line fitting for a crappy movie. The only thing that looks good in the poster is Sienna Miller and her ass.

Oh and that thing about Cobra Commader's hood? fucking stupid

Didn't we learn by now?

Didn't we learn by now not to judge movies before they come out? How many people on here was screaming about how badazz T4 and Wolvie was going to be and how they would rule the summer! and they turned out to be alright movies at best, totally not badazz or great. I hope it will turn out to be entertaining at least, especially if your not expecting much anyway.

If you believe Cobra Commander looks like a member of the KKK you deserved to be drug out of the theater through the streets and shot.

Damn the trailer killed the movie for me but this is the final nail in the coffin. Shit.

Laughable

Whoever is responsible for the marketing of this film should be fired immediately. Beyond the horrible casting, beyond the rediculous look of the character; tucking the main villian (who should inspire fear and dread) off to the side like that proves those responsible for this film have no respect or knowledge for the subject matter. Hasbro should be hanging their heads in embarrassment right now.

Is this a joke?

Im pretty sure a retarded kid on an Etch A Sketch with no thumbs could have Photoshopped a better poster....this movie is going to be more horrifying than a girl-girl scene of Joan Rivers and Star Jones....I loved GI Joe so much as a kid but this really looks awful.....I have no words for how sucky this may be.

"evil never looked so good" is probably a line in the movie. As is "When all else fails, they don't" said by general hawk.

"Evil never looked so good"

Maybe. Whether you agree with that or not, I have to admit it does have appeal.

At least Gordon-Levitt looks like a kid, and they seem to be trying to use it to their advantage, whatever reason. Still looks like an ultimately pretty absurd exercise.

And yeah, it does feel a little like "Mortal Kombat" or something. But hopefully better.

Yeah... everyone knew the extra tidbit but hasn't anyone thought this? Cobra Commander's blue hood could have looked just like Stormshadows but BLUE (and two eyeholes instead of one). If they did that I would have been happy.

Wait...

I thought Levitt with the gas mask was Dr. Mindbender and that he was playing 2 roles. Could be wrong.
