G.I. Joe: New Extended Trailer, Several New Posters

gijoecobraheader

The fine folks at The Movie Box have uncovered an extended TV trailer for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra this afternoon that features some new footage as well as plenty of previously seen footage. Almost all of the new stuff comes right at the end of the clip below, and for the most part it doesn’t look too bad. If you remember correctly, there has been a lot of talk lately around the situation between producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and director Stephen Sommers — talk of problems in the editing room, rumors of the director being fired and rumblings of the movie not testing so well. In fact, our friends at /Film posted an interesting test screening report the other day, in which their anonymous reviewer said that it will be interesting to see how audiences react to the way that the ‘talent involved doesn’t match up’ to the ‘high quality production’.

If you ask me, this film still looks like a 12-year old’s wet dream — a big budget version of a silly kids movie. It will be cool, if you’re 12. Luckily I still operate on the assumption that I am, in fact, a 12-year old. Alas, here is the new trailer.

As well, a few of our friends around the web have begun posting new character posters for the film. Check those out below by clicking on the thumbnails and heading to various destinations around the web.
