Final Poster for 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' is a Big Sloppy Photoshop Mess
Since there wasn't anything all that special about the character posters we highlighted a little while back promoting G.I. Joe: Retaliation, not much should've been expected from the rest of the poster campaign for the summer blockbuster. However, we thought a little more effort might be put into making one final theatrical poster rather than slapping images from a few of the aforementioned character banners and sloppily pasting them into Photoshop in a fashion that tries to emulate Drew Struzan's illustrated poster design. It is certainly not one of the better posters I've seen recently, but you can still check it out below.
Here's the final poster for Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe Retaliation, released by ComingSoon:
G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation is being directed by Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2 & 3D, "The LXD", Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick. Channing Tatum returns as Duke, along with Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Lee Byung-hun as Storm Shadow. Other newcomers to the cast include Bruce Willis as General Joseph B. Colton, Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye, Ray Stevenson as Firefly, Joseph Mazzello as Mouse, Arnold Vosloo as Zartan, D.J. Cotrona as Flint, and RZA as the Blind Master. Paramount is planning to release G.I. Joe: Retaliation starting on June 29th, 2012 this summer.
