A new live actionG.I. Joe Movie will be coming out this summer. Called G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, the action film is receiving a lot of buzz as rumors of the G.I. Joe movie trailer as well as new G.I. Joe movie posters run wild on the internet. Director Stephen Sommers has been giving interviews about his thoughts on the film, as well as putting to bed several additional rumors about whether or not actress Sienna Miller had to augment her bust size in while shooting scenes for the film.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra will hit theaters on August 7th, 2009, and will surely get a lot of publicity as the summer movie season draws closer. The film is of course an updated version of the once popular G.I. Joe cartoon and comic book, and a look back at some characters that have become quite famous over the years. The updated version isn’t going to be quite the same as some fans may remember it, but in its place will be a ramped up action film that is sure to not only make a lot of money at the box office, but appeal to a wide-range of move going audiences.
Stephen Sommers is directing the G.I. Joe movie, and is best known for his work directing The Mummy,Van Helsing, and The Mummy Returns. This means that Sommers knows out to make a successful action film packed with excitement, but it isn’t clear as to whether or not this will end up being a “good” film. The cast for the film includes quite a few recognizable actors and actresses that includes Dennis Quaid as General Hawk, Channing Tatum as Duke, Sienna Miller as The Baroness, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander just to name a few. The cast certainly appears to be up to the task visually, but as the movie gets closer to release, fans will get to see more clips of what the film has to offer.
Promotional pictures for the film are the only thing that producers are letting out of the bag so far in regards to the movie, and since it is still about 8 months from getting released, that isn’t too much of a surprise. When it does come out on August 7th, it is sure to make a good box office tally for the weekend, but in this economic environment, it is still too early to tell if it will be a commercial success with the staying power necessary to make it a smash hit. For now fans must sit back and enjoy interviews with the cast members and early movie posters as everyone gets ready for the G.I. Joe movie trailers to be released.
