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?
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.
