Four New Individual Posters for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra

Remember that G.I. Joe movie? The one that's supposed to come out next August? Yea, we forgot about it, too. Thankfully the Russians over at Filmz.ru have come to our rescue with four new posters from G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. Apparently there's a finished trailer floating around inside the gates at Paramount, but it hasn't been put out officially yet and no one we know has actually seen it. We've at least got these four character posters to hold us over until we see some footage - which who knows when that'll be. If I were Paramount, I'd be a bit worried right now, as everyone seems to have forgotten all about G.I. Joe...
Below you'll see Channing Tatum as Duke, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Sienna Miller as Baroness, and Marlon Wayans as Ripcord. Another note - it looks like Paramount hired the same company to make these posters as the one that made the Star Trek posters. Give or take a dash of red, these have the exact same highly contrasted black and white look to them. Honestly, that design seems a bit overused by now and I'm not sure whether I should applaud this decision or condemn it at this point? What do you think?
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is directed by big action filmmaker Stephen Sommers, of The Jungle Book, Deep Rising, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, and Van Helsing previously. The screenplay was co-written by both Stuart Beattie, of Collateral, Derailed, and 30 Days of Night, and Skip Woods, of Swordfish and Hitman. The movie is based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe line of toys that first debut in 1964. Paramount will premiere G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra in theaters everywhere on August 7th, 2009 this summer.
