Flashy New International Poster for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Fire and ice? Or just Cobra vs Joe? Empire has debuted a new international poster for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra featuring an ensemble collection of characters from both sides. It's actually not that bad - I kind of like the look of it. At least it's better than the floating heads designs we see all too often or even the final Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen poster (which I just hate). This movie is probably going to be terribly cheesy and pretty awful in the end, sadly, but at least it has a cool poster. And don't forget, this is just the international poster, and the official US one probably won't look as good. Take a look at it below.
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 Stuart Beattie, of Collateral, Derailed, and 30 Days of Night previously, as well as Skip Woods, of Swordfish and Hitman previously. The movie is based on Hasbro's G.I. Joe line of toys that debuted in 1964. Paramount will premiere G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra in theaters everywhere on August 7th this year.
