Last month, the international poster for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra used a fire-and-ice color scheme that said "the Joes are cool and calculated agents of the government" while Cobra is "hot, sexy and dangerous."
The latest poster levels the playing field, putting all the character in the same blue tint but changing their locations. The Cobra characters look like they're living in an aquarium while the Joes tower over France with sweet metal abs on top of their accelerator suits. Oui oui, those are some real American heroes.
In other G.I. Joe-related news, Cobra Commander (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has come to the defense of director Stephen Sommers, who was reportedly fired from G.I. Joe after some poor test screenings. The story turned out to be false, and Gordon-Levitt shared nothing but positive accolades about Sommers to MTV:
Stephen Sommers is like a big kid. We’d get to set every day and it was like playing with toys except the toys are bigger. No one was more excited about the big toys than he was. He talks real fast and real loud and gets really excited. Who else should direct G.I. Joe but a big kid who loves big toys?
Not everyone would agree. An audience member from a March screening wrote an early review for SlashFilm, saying Paramount should be "embarrassed" by the movie. The reviewer goes on to say that the very popular character of Snake Eyes (Ray Park) is "the best part of the movie." Knowing that could be half the battle to getting G.I. Joe fans into theaters August 7. Posted 06.17.09 by Ryan
Christopher Nolan regular Michael Caine confirmed he will appear in the director's upcoming sci-fi thriller Inception:
I have a little part in it, yes. Just a tiny part. Chris and I arevery good friends so I’ll do that little part. I think I’ll work aboutthree days. It’ll be extraordinary, wait until you see this one. Ithink if I say another word he’s going to kill me!
With Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently joining the cast, and Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard and Cillian Murphy already on board, this is turning out to be quite an ensemble. No new details about the movie's plot was revealed, with Inception remaining shrouded in secrecy. Posted 04.26.09 by Ryan
Along with starring in the upcoming G.I. Joe movie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has officially joined the cast of Inception, the next film from Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan. Gordon-Levitt will replace James Franco, who was originally slated to star, but had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts. The movie is scheduled to go into shooting this summer and has a tentative release date of July 16, 2010.
The plot line has been kept under strict secrecy, although Nolan gave a vague and teasing descritption of the movie as a sci-fi thriller involving "the architecture of the mind." Already cast are Leonardo DiCaprio as a successful business man, 2007 Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard as his wife, Juno's Ellen Page as a brainy sidekick, and Cillian Murphy -- who played Scarecrow in Nolan's Batman Begins -- in an unknown role.
