First G.I. Joe Poster Plus Subtitle - Rise of Cobra

First G.I. Joe Poster Plus Subtitle - Rise of Cobra

The first full poster for the upcoming G.I. Joe movie has been discovered and alongside of it the new subtitle for the film. G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra is now the official title. The guys over at happened to come across this poster at the Cinema Expo in Amsterdam and took a photo for the world to see. I would say it's not all that amazing, plus it's only Duke, play by Channing Tatum, and I'd rather see some of the other G.I. Joe team members instead, like Dennis Quaid as General Hawk or Sienna Miller as The Baroness. However, if this strikes up as heated of a discussion as the new name of Transformers 2, then go for it. You can check out the poster below and discuss the new name in the comments.

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra

Cobra Command is the fictional nemesis of the G.I. Joe team. The organization is lead by Cobra Commander, a hooded villain regarded as the most dangerous man on Earth, because he can draw followers to him. Additionally part of the Cobra team are Destro, The Baroness, and Storm Shadow. The plot of the film, while unknown for the most part, deals with the G.I. Joe team taking on "an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer." Hence the new title Rise of Cobra.

G.I. Joe is directed by Stephen Sommers (Deep Rising, The Mummy, Van Helsing) and written by both Stuart Beattie and Skip Woods. The movie arrives in theaters on August 7th, 2009.

I'd rather see what J.G-L. looks like as Cobra Commander.

Yeah - I could care two squats about G.I. Joe. All of the production leaks so far have not been encouraging.

Tom Brazelton on Jun 23, 2008


the question on everyone's mind: which is going to be bigger, transformers 2 or GIjoe.

Darrin on Jun 23, 2008


That wasn't a question on MY mind, Darrin. 😛 I wasn't the biggest Transformers 1 fan, but this film just hasn't looked promising at all. I'm holding out hope for G.I. Joe to be good, but I won't be holding my breath. It's got a WAYANS brother in it for cryin' out loud! If we're lucky, it'll be as good as X-men 3. Yeah.

I would say the production leak of Scarlett was impressive enough.

Mass Effect - the movie.

Why doesn't Hasbro pull a Marvel and have Cobra steal Transformer technology and have all hell break loose.

I want a preview soon. The photos and the poster aren't enough.

"Rise of Cobra" - Wow. I guess "GI Joe: Erection" was taken?

dRailer on Jun 23, 2008


He looks like one of the Corey's. Not would be nice if there was more motion to the shot, but I'm game. Where's the preview...I hope it's coming soon.

Bry from Chi on Jun 23, 2008


I can't wait to see what Destro and Cobra Commander look like...although I'm sure I'll have to wait till the 'Final Trailer' or opening day to see such (potential) awesomeness.

JeepFu on Jun 23, 2008


first of all, LMFAO @ number 9. second, this subtitle definitely screams sequels.

Tom on Jun 23, 2008


This movie is going to suck. Two words: Stephen Sommers. Two more words: Van Helsing.

Alex on Jun 23, 2008


How can everyone be so negative about this movie yet? There is nothing but a poster so far, and we have all these haters. Unreal. Just wait till a preview, and then make your judgments. Until then ill be excited!

Andy Adair on Jun 23, 2008


And the poster looks badass to me! 🙂

Andy Adair on Jun 23, 2008


#9 dRailer - man that was funny...still laughin may ass off. This movie's gonna suck big time, still going to watch it though. I believe the question should be, will this suck worse than "street fighter"?

damuh_yuzah on Jun 24, 2008


I don't really care one way or another. I never played with a G.I. Joe as a kid..HELL I've never been in the same room with one. BUT The same can be said of me and Transformers, but I saw Transformers and that was awesome. If the trailer for this is decent I'll go. COME ON PEOPLE. Teaer Trailers alone can't convince people a movie's going to be great LET ALONE FUCKING POSTERS. Unfortunately I've seen both the Teaser and Poster for The Spirit and that one's gonna flop and suck. I think he kinda looks like Paul Tuttle Jr. from American Chopper (any agreement?) oh, and #9, good thing the character isn't named something else. If I had to watch G.I. Joe: Rise of Spitting Cobra, I wouldn't able to concentrate.

WOOOHOOOOOOOOO.. Bring it on.. Haters are everywhere on this production apparently... but I am game... I completely see an underground following that will dig it, but it could be a Starship Troopers with the folks that are involved so far... but I DON'T CARE... I AM PUMPED.... woohooooo GO JOE

Dusty on Jun 24, 2008


nothing good looking about this poster to plain and its only of Duke, I've seen the other posters and there all the same, im looking forward to the movie but these posters dont help at all.

Curtis on Jun 24, 2008


So is that guy with the Snake Headdress and get up going to be in the film? Plus, I always pictured Destro wearing a silver mask and a black robe, so it'll be weird to see him as a regular guy. Since we're throwing back to the 80s, how about a live action Care Bears movie? hahaha

CJD on Jun 25, 2008


Just get this over with so we can move on to Thundera, Mum-Ra, and the Sword of Omens already.

Djo on Jun 25, 2008


Yah know, I was born when the cartoon came out in the 85' but I do remember growing up watching the new version of the cartoons in the late 80s, and Channing Tatum does NOT look like Duke.

Angie G. on Jul 31, 2008


so this no-load kid is going to be "Duke", huh? The same Duke that looked kicked so much Cobra ass back in the day, the same Duke that could practically make Sgt. Slaughter cry, and the same Duke that every damn Joe in the unit said "yes sir" to even though he wasn't an officer, I don't think he can pull it off 1: Back when Gen. Hawk wasn't even a General, Duke was the First Sergeant, which means he's just as old if not older than Hawk, damnit. 2. Duke had 20 years, of service, lots of war stories, and most importantly, he had grit, this kid doesn't look the part. 3. Duke wore olive pants, a tan shirt, a bandalier, and had a blonde flat-top. this "kid" isn't worthy to lace up Duke's boots I do think Dennis Quaid was a good choice to fill the shoes of Hawk, but I think he would have been a better fit for Flint, though I still wonder where the hell are Flint, Roadblock, Dusty, Lady Jaye, Rock n Roll, and all of the classic Joes. I think Ray Parks will do fine as Snake Eyes, but I have my doubts about Storm Shadow. Now I know I sound obssessive, and maybe I am, but for old guys like me, who really remember, the old GIJoe even the details of the old GIjoe, this movie, just isn't going to do it justice..
