Paramount just released a new movie trailer for G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra this week, but thankfully I was spared a viewing while at X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I don’t think I could have handled both this trailer and that movie; adamantium bullets may have been necessary.
G.I. Joe is from Stephen Sommers, the guy behind The Mummy as Paramount wants to make perfectly clear. Unfortunately, Sommers is also responsible for The Mummy Returns, which was horrific – and not in a good way. G.I. Joe looks more along the lines of the latter film, as it’s full of cheesy special effects, awkward action and crappy acting. It’s hard to tell whether this film will be a flop due to its massive brand awareness, but it could easily be this year’s Speed Racer.
