Fresh New Batch of Stylish G.I. Joe Posters - Updated!
After nearly two years of waiting, we'll finally get out first glimpse at the G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra movie this upcoming weekend during the Super Bowl. So in addition to that new footage, we've got a brand new batch of posters to feature today, straight from JoBlo. I know, I know, we've already seen plenty of posters for G.I. Joe before, but I assure you, these are worth checking out. They're a definite improvement over the older black and white design they've used and are a tweaked version of the Matrix Reloaded-style cut off head posters. And given I'm easily excitable, I'll admit that I think these look pretty badass. Thoughts?
Below you'll see Channing Tatum as Duke, Rachel Nichols as Scarlett, Sienna Miller as Baroness, and Ray Park as Snake Eyes. There is also another poster featuring Marlon Wayans as Ripcord that can be seen on JoBlo. With the trailer out on Sunday and these new posters out today, is G.I. Joe gaining any buzz?
Update: Added posters of Marlon Wayans as Ripcord and Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow 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 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.

The poster's look cool...hopefully the trailer lives up to the fanboy hype...and maybe they changed the way Stormshadow looked...cause he sucked. 'nuff said.

BTW...Paramount was bullying that website for posting the poor reviews of GI Joe trailer!!! They tried to shut it down!

bourneidentity - The review of the trailer soundS bad!! And trailers have the best parts of the movie!
anna on Jan 27, 2009
how can anyone be excited by this movie.
thasaltshaker on Jan 27, 2009
I don't have a lot of hope for this movie, but I want to see it just for Ray Park.

They're cutting off the heads because this movie has no star power. People will see Marlon Wayans and immediately be turned off. Also, when did they change the title to G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra? Don't they know that Movies With Colons: Always Suck?
Tom Brazelton on Jan 27, 2009
Tom, they like to admit it ahead of time with the name instead of the trailer or posters.

I doubt he'll be good in this because it seems like a crappy movie in general, but anyone who badmouths Marlon Wayans is neglecting REQUIEM FOR A DREAM. Alot of capable actors loose their talents behind terrible directors and thats not their fault. I always hoped Marlon could shake the Wayons like Jamie Foxx did.
Voice Of Reason on Jan 27, 2009
The trailer is gonna be the decider.
Nick Sears on Jan 27, 2009
I think they look cool. Snake Eyes is badass, and Scarlet and the Baroness look hot! Hopefully the trailer and the movie itself will be cool...
Dave on Jan 27, 2009
These posters are f-ing rock! Sienna Miller looks so hot!
transformersrobot on Jan 27, 2009
THESE POSTERS ROCK. I dont know how the movie will do but looking at these posters i'm in. Especially the first one of that hunk!!!
SmartVor on Jan 27, 2009
OMFG! I hope the movie is just as good as these look! Sienna Millers ass looks great.
dsnyboy4evr on Jan 27, 2009
These posters look so dope. Almost as dope as my homie who made them!
amaya Lascano on Jan 27, 2009
the top left looks like they took the costume straight from the dark knight

Does anyone else notice the striking similarities between Duke's armor and the new Batman armor unveiled in "The Dark Knight?" Running out of ideas, eh?
David on Jan 27, 2009
Ripping of costumes from The Dark Knight and posters from the Matrix. This movie is not off to a good start.
Nitpicker on Jan 27, 2009
I agree, it does look like it has a matrix spin on things. Loved the matrix, if it is anything like it, I am sure to love G.I. Joe too!!
mel on Jan 27, 2009
These look exciting. But it's not the look of the film that I'm really worried about. I don't have high hopes for this one.
Paul on Jan 27, 2009
I'm certain this movie will bore the hell out of me. Blah.
Itri on Jan 27, 2009
Why does everything have to look like the f*cking Matrix?
sumonesumtime on Jan 27, 2009
Stephen Sommers directed this. Hopes = dashed.
Fuelbot on Jan 27, 2009
These are awesome!!! great detail in all the shots. Posters are probably going to be the best part of the movie.
JoeShmo on Jan 27, 2009
This series is amazing. Sienna Miller = phenomenal. These posters actually make me interested in seeing the movie. No interest before. By far some of the best posters released lately. Those Friday 13th posters were disappointing. Wild postings of that one were better than the theater released ones.
CRON on Jan 27, 2009
I'm missing the red blue and white in the logo. Oh well! These are pretty good
bltzie on Jan 27, 2009
who cares about these posters. Red Dwarf is coming back!
Red Color Buttons. on Jan 27, 2009
Stephen Sommers and Skip Woods suck pretty bad. Stuart Beattie is my reedeming element of my closer look at the film. But overall I would see it anyway.
Merc on Jan 27, 2009
i really want to see the trailer for this, but since NBC's charging 3 mil for 30secs, i'm not expecting more than a brief teaser/ ...Don't be deceived, Marlon Wayans is a very talented actor when given the right role.
LeeMan on Jan 27, 2009
Why do they appear wearing the "same" thing?! I want my action figures and not the newly dressed barbies... FFS! They looked like ants and it's hard to tell the soldier ant from the worker drone... The beauty of GIJ is their individual appearance as it directly resonates their characters... I hope the above posters are just for show and the movie would present the characters otherwise...
miracle disease on Jan 27, 2009
I can't wait to see ths movie. Even since the end of "Last Stand" I wanted a really good X-Men movie and this looks like it could be the greatest of all three. I mean, Wolverine looks great and I love what they've done with Jean Grey. Looks amazing! Wait, what? Oh, I apologize. Let me know when they make the "Real American Hero" and not some sci-fi piece of garbage.

Looks like MGS for Xmas!
pipo on Jan 27, 2009
Is it G.I. Joe or G.I. fashion show?
OCP on Jan 27, 2009
Given Sommers and his "over-the-top" approach to things I hope this movie just doesn't set up for a Snake eyes/Stormshadow showdown ONLY, or is so over-the-top that it comes off like the movie Stealth. I'd love to see Military folk think this is cool the same way doctors I know dig House. Not sure that'll happen though. ..Still looks better than Dragonball or Chun li
j money on Jan 27, 2009
b-list actors + old recycled batman/X-men costumes + brendan frasier acting in any movie + marlon wayons acting like a bad-ass + early horrible trailer reviews= complete trainwreck!!!!
Mike on Jan 27, 2009
what ever happened to the really early teaser trailers that come out in like December that blow your mind and make you beg for the next summer to come??? We miss the train this year??! WTF!! all in all, not excited because there's been NOTHING to get excited about. You like art, okay, get excited about the posters... you like movies, WELL LETS SEE SOME FUCKING TRAILERS THEN!!! jesus
Daniel on Jan 27, 2009
That's not GI Joe!
JimD on Jan 27, 2009
These poasters are O.K at best, but I seriously think we should all wait until Superbowl Sunday when the t.v trailer comes out to decide to either bash the crap out of it or admit how awesome it looks. The spot will be the final nail in the coffin for sure. Peace Out !

One of the cool things about GI JOE was that all the characters had their own unique outfit.... these look like some lame futuristic Swat team..... laaaaaame!!!!!!
Tomi Lahdesmaki on Jan 27, 2009
Oh. my. god. These are some of the coolest posters I have EVER seen for a movie!
Eric on Jan 28, 2009
scarlet looks hot
darrin on Jan 28, 2009
It looks so.........bland.......
Chris C. on Jan 28, 2009
Why do these posters look like a bad video game adaptation? *gasp* I just jinx'd the whole f-n thing!
Koopa on Jan 28, 2009
I liked the first batch of posters better..these look like they were cut off at the wrong point. Oh well.I'm picky..I'm a graphic artist. 😀 I still will watch it though..I want to see the snake dude.
Bry from Chi on Jan 28, 2009
Looks like the general opinion on this so far has a lot of negativity to it. Which sucks cause this had so much potential as an idea. I REALLY want this one to do well. =(
