New G.I. Joe trailer

Jun. 21, 2009by: Dave Davis

Another trailer for Stephen Sommers' feature-length lunatic toy commercial G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA has arrived, seemingly with all the ludicrous action, improbable hardware, puerile humor and dubious special effects you might expect from the man whose last film was VAN HELSING.

Could be fun, could be a mess... could be a fun mess. You've probably already decided if you'll bother seeing it (or your kids have made the decision for you), but here's the latest trailer.

Extra Tidbit: Rachel Nichols as Scarlett is nearly as sexy as her green-skinned STAR TREK appearance.

"Anyone who thinks the classic G.I. Joe comic from Marvel was nonsense either never read it or has no taste."

or has read it actually has taste. did Cobra Commander hire Zartan to kill Snake Eye's dog after it killed Cobra Commander's pet kitten before or after he decided to sell toilet paper as his scheme to world domination?

machinelovers is correct, listen to what the fuck you guys are saying. A fun mess is the equivalent to "you know, this movie does look kinda shitty but it seems like light-hearted action and fun, wait a minute did I just see a fucking accelerator suit?"

Come on people... even one of you said "I'm gonna see it even tho I don't expect it to be good" and "It looks like kiddy fun which is exactly what I want to see with a movie like this". Who the hell are you people and do you even listen to

Who the hell are you people and do you even listen to what you're saying? Saying things like that but then ripping Wolverine a new asshole is massively contradictive and will never fix anything in Hollywood.

Judging by this summer's turdfests (T4, Land of the Lost, even Wolverine after it's initial weekend total) you can't just put together a bunch of CGI, random action sequences trying to connect a lame written story and expect box office bank. I can't see this doing anywhere near 150 million tops.

and no haters, I'm not a G.I. Joe fanboy.. I've never read the comics or seen the TV show. I just know a piece of shit CGI lump of Van Helsing meets modern warfare when I see one.

Wow, haters eh.

I've been looking for the term to label how G.I. Joe looks and Davis nailed it. Could definitely be a fun mess.

I think it's certain at this point (given this kind of mixed buzz and the bad news from set about Sommers, etc.), G.I. Joe won't bode well with critics and will split fanboys/film fans but ultimately, how could something like this fail at the box office?

It won't. They've been hyping it for a while now and like I keep saying: August is a dead month. My only major interests at

Oh yeahhhh, this could be a fun mess. It might turn out to be sucks but it's gonna make lots of money at the box office. Tell you the truth, I kinda like the new trailer. It's gonna be a fun popcorn movie with some cool action sequences.

It's G.I. Joe, really nothing more to expect. The was comic nonsensical, the cartoon nonsensical, so why shouldn't the movie be.

as far as Cobra Commander not being in the trailer -- nobody would recognize him if he was, so there simply is no point in showing him.

Is Cobra Commander even in the movie?

they must be keeping him hidden from the trailers like they did with the dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park spots.

I'll see this just for some cool action sequences. I already know not to expect much in terms of direction or acting. And knowing is half the battle.

wow does this look terrible. Second biggest bomb of the summer right here behind Land of the Lost. Just...so...so...bad. The jokes themselves made me groan and it's only the trailer.

What's funny

is the majority of people complaining here are likely way too young to even remember the cartoon.

This movie will be dumb fun just like the cartoon that preceded it. Anyone who thought this was going to be The Dark Knight Redux needs their head examined.

Still looks dreadful. Transformers may be crap, but it looks like extremely entertaining crap. This just looks like pure shit.

Fun Mess

I don't expect this movie to be good at all. I'm going to see it anyway, but I just hope its a fun mess.

Please don't let it be so bad that it makes Wolverine look good, thats all I ask Stephen Sommers, don't make Wolverine look good.

I don't know, looks like good popcorn fun to me. As for seriousness... it's GI Joe, how serious can it really be??
Even Star Trek was funny; didn't hurt

I think this is going to be a massive fail. I was hoping it would be cool as Snake Eyes was always cool when I was a kid but you can pretty much rely on Sommers to screw it up with ropey cgi and a crap script. No one is expecting high art but come on, and why did someone sneeze on the Eiffel Tower!?!?!

That looks like crap.....

The writers shouldn't have had the G.I. Joe characters making jokes like the ones in this trailer. Also not making them look like morons. If possible...they should have made the movie somewhat serious. Having the characters be serious. This movie is going to suck.
