So here’s the latest trailer for Stephen Sommers’ much-maligned, much-discussed “G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra”, which apparently has been cut to sell the lighter side of being a Joe. You know, the lighter side of guys running around in metal suits dodging missiles fired from sports cars. Yeah, anyways, remember when Marlon Wayans said in interviews that his character Ripcord wasn’t going to be the film’s comedy relief? Er, I think Marlon lied. Check out the latest trailer for “Rise of Cobra”. Snake Eyes still looks like the only decent thing about this entire movie, and he’s not even the male lead as far as I can tell. It’s all about Dukey and his buddy Rippy, because obviously the blood feud between two super badass ninjas isn’t enough to build an entire movie around. Ahem.
An elite military unit comprised of special operatives known as G.I. Joe, operating out of The Pit, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer.
Starring Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christopher Eccleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Byung-hun Lee, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Jonathan Pryce, Saïd Taghmaoui, Channing Tatum, and Marlon Wayans. Stephen Sommers (“Van Helsing”) directs.
Grab an exo-suit and jump over trees August 7.
Trailer via YouTube, which means there’s a very good chance I’ll get a letter from Paramount telling me to remove it, so watch it while you can, kids. At least until they officially release it a few days later…
