G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Yesterday we featured a pretty disappointing final theatrical poster for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and it was nothing short of a Photoshop mess. But today, two new international posters have surfaced that have a much sleeker design and much less obvious glossy touch-ups (though Bruce Willis still looks weird). Honestly, Paramount should just take one of these posters and slap the English title on it and send that out across the United States instead. Not only do they look better (mostly because of less dead white space), but they both fit with the original design from the poster for Rise of Cobra from three years ago. Look below!

Here's the final poster for Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe Retaliation, released by IMP Awards:

G.I. Joe: Retaliation - Final International Poster 2

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.

Tatum must die or something in the first few minutes of this movie.

That's been pretty clear as of the second trailer and the events following where Tatum isn't seen with Roadblock or any of the other heroes.

Spoiler alert, Mr. Anderton!

Nah, that's pretty damn clear in the trailers. Watch them again, it's very noticable, but still...

It's ok. I didn't notice, but, maybe, in some way, they are wanting us to thing he's dead... and then, surprise! he is! ;D

I'm not a fan of Tatum or anything (nor do I dislike him), but I really hope they don't kill off Duke in hopes of rebooting the movies via wiping out the original cast. If anything, I would've way rather seen them just recast the role...

 Sorry for not seeing it as clearly as the rest of you lol

HealthyPoison on May 9, 2012


It's not so much a spoiler... but they are crafting all the trailers to cover it up. They want to make people THINK that Tatum is in this longer than the opening... 😉

Oh well...

I have no idea the name of the girl they have on the, "Joe" side, but she is absolutely hideous in my opinion...yikes
