UPDATED: Full Teaser Online Now!!! 1st Glimpse of GI JOE Action!

Beaks here... ComingSoon.net has just posted the entire Super Bowl spot, and, in answer to Harry's question, it looks like the tone is "typical Stephen Sommers": big, loud and kinda corny. That bothered me in VAN HELSING, but with G.I. JOE... "typical Stephen Sommers" could be just what this material needs. The disintegrating Eiffel Tower reminds me of something we'd see in the cartoon. I think that's a good thing?



Hey folks, Harry here... Some lightning quick glimpses of some of the G.I. JOE insanity that Sommers is planning to unleash this summer. Slick looking. That 'armored' stuff, is the power armor that the Joe's put on in a chase sequence that if Sommers has done his job right, will be quite something. I'm still waiting to get a glimpse of the tone of this film, to see if Sommers is directing it with a wink or with a sack. This is all pretty heavy action orientated material - completely out of context, but looking big. What do you think? This is the link, and knowing is half the battle!

    Sommers and selling a name.

    by Sithtastic

    I have to confess, there is a part of me--the part that used to enjoy the GI Joe franchise--that wants to see this. However, from the look of things, making GI Joe "cool" again, requires making it, well...generic. As for those of you hoping this will end Sommers' career, don't hold your breath. This is about selling a name and throngs of fanboys will load the theaters for this one.

    Looks slightly interesting....

    by BacardiRocky

    ....I am not going to bash this film until i see it or at least see a full length trailer. I mean, seeing the Dragon Ball and Street Fighter trailers gave me a good impression that those flicks might look like crap (Never a DB or DBZ fan anyways, oh well) but this clip was too short to fully make any real opinion. Hopefully we see something more in that :30 teaser on Super Bowl Sunday. And for those who are calling it a generic looking action film, well NO SHIT! Its not supposed to be Shakespeare.Its a movie about a military special forces group who takes on a terrorist organization. It does not get more generic than that but who cares. Its GI JOE.

    This is what Bay said on his blog:"The Super Bowl spot is coming Sunday in the third Quarter (few minutes into the quarter slot). The spot will be online a few minutes after that." "The full length teaser trailer will only be on 'Friday the 13th'. It will not hit the internet until a week later." Don't expect much either - "The teaser really only teases stuff - I'm holding so much stuff back from the final trailers because I personally hate going to movies where you have seen it all." AMEN to that!

I look forward to seeing more with upcoming trailers, but if I had to make a decision based on everything I've read and seen so far. I would have to say that am actually excited to see this popcorn flick.<br><br> I'm even going farther in saying it's my 2nd most anticipated movie of 2009, behind Watchmen. GO JOE!

    by James Westfall

    If the studio and the director are terrified of having anything to do with America be in a movie about 'G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero,' then honestly the movie shouldn't be made. This movie should be done by people who don't think America's bad or evil or whatever. To be true to its concept it should be made by people who *gasp* actually love America.

    by Larry Sellers

    starring Americans, made by Americans, and it will top the American box office and very likely most international box office upon release. It is about American heroes. We don't need it to say it is. That's the cheesiest fucking subtitle ever. "A Real American Hero." Escapism wins for whoever thinks laser-firing, high-tech armor wearing muscley cartoons are "Real American Heroes." The cartoon was probably animated in India.

    Can't be bad as Transformers

    by Bass Ackwards

    Sommers can be very very bad, but he's at the least never as stupid as Bay. Transotmers wasn't ruined by being mediocre, it was ruined by being plain old idiotic. Plus Joe is just an easier property, it doesn't have the mythology or the fun character dynamics that the Transformer cartoon had, which the movie eagerly washed over to make a movie about Shia. If the action is strong, and the Joes kick bunches of Cobra foot soldier ass throughout without wasting time in goofy needless side stories, this will be mostly a success. I couldn't see a thing in that trailer, but the main thing that worries me about Sommers is his reliance on CGI, it's like the bigger budget he gets the less he tries to use it for actual filming, make a cartoon already!

    by TheMarineBiologist

    Redacted: a movie based upon a handful of military officers who raped and murdered a family. A very good reason why we shouldn't be in Iraq, as propagated by the filmmaker. An anti-war film.<p> Stop Loss: An anti-war film describing the horrors of the stop loss program and how it keeps people in the war.<p> Lions for Lambs: An anti-war film showing how incompetent leaders send poor men and women off to their deaths.<p> Body of Lies: A film that shows a special agent being manipulated and thrown into danger by a laid back leader sipping lemonade back home. Anti-war film.<p> Jughead: Showing the ill effects that come from war.<p> In the Valley of Elah: A film showcasing many ultra-liberal actors discussing torture of prisoners and death of one's children. Hell ya, anti-war film.<p> The Situation: Limited release, the plot sounds absolutely dreadful. Never heard of it...<p> The Kingdom: I remember when this came out... I remember the reviews... this movie SUCKED.<p> So, most (if not all) of those movies were anti-war movies that made sure to show the military in a very terrible light. These were movies that were made because Bush sucked, not movies that were unsuccessful because Bush sucked. These movies sucked all on their own because it was wholly miscalculated that Americans wanted to see the American Military in shambles.

    How To Make It Politically Relevant

    by LaserPants

    Will anyone be killed?

    by jrb

    Or will all the bullet fired by GI Joe's only knock the guns out of the hands of Cobra fighters and never actually draw blood? Will everybody safely parachute out of aircraft that are blown up, or will they die at the controls? I watched a lot of GI Joe and was just growing out of my "action figure" stage when the toys came out. (I had the GI Joe tank and wish to hell I never sold it at a garage sale. It was cool as shit!) It was the lack of death and real consequences to combat violence that made me lose interest in the cartoon. Then I discovered Robotech. That show had people getting killed all the time. Even seriously cool main characters got knocked off. R.I.P. Roy Fokker... You'll be hunting for pineapple salads in heaven.

    Theres No Such Thing As An Anti-War Film

    by LaserPants

    Because even those critical of war show ultimately have to stage exciting action scenes; thereby saying, unintentionally, that war is "bad-ass" and "cool." Maybe a movie which only focused on the aftermath of battle -- the charred, battered remains of the dead, wailing with fear, anger, terror and pain -- could be anti-war. Sort of like how Haneke kept most of the violence in FUNNY GAMES off screen; focusing one excrutiatingly long scene on the aftermath of a brutal killing.

    jrb mentioned Robotech (and/or Macross, et al), and he's totally right. Star Blazers (Space Cruiser Yamato) was the same way -- war stories in which there are actual consequences and characters you love dying.

    People who are anticipating this film....

    by Zandunga

    ...have terrible short-term memory and are just awaiting massive disappointment. Remember the shít sandwich known as Van Helsing? No? Remember the craptacular Mummy 2? This has all the hallmarks of a generic, action cheese fest full of special effects and corny one-liners. Stephen Summers is interchangeable with Len Wiseman, Rob Cohen, Michael Bay and so on. When are people going to stop jizzing their pants at the first sight of a big spectacle that will inevitably turn out to be a schlocky, throwaway film? If anything else, 2008 has taught us - with films like Iron Man and Dark Knight - that action/adventure can be handled with vibrancy, dynamism, and some sense of life and weight underneath the eye-popping spectacle. Even a movie like Taken, which is formulaic straight ahead action, transcends this kind of Stephen Sommers garbage and has some solid filmmaking chops and an intense vibe to it. Taken is schlock, but it's solid, well-directed, well-acted schlock that Stephen Summers is incapable of doing. Until you geeks stop supporting crap like GI Joe, the studios will continue to churn out pig slop and we will continue to get stuff like Fantastic Four 2, Die Hard 4, Transformers, and Van Helsing. I, for one, will not be watching it in theaters. Maybe I'll sneak a peak at Sienna Miller's scenes online because as far as I'm concerned, her cleavage is the only thing this "film" has going for itself. This is about money, and when the studios realize these so-called directors aren't bankable anymore, they'll have to shift gears and start investing in the kind of talent that can actually deliver.

    My apologies to most of you. I usually wouldn't want to turn a thread about GI Joe into a political shit throwing contest. I'll never be able to change the mind of the crazy bag lay on the street who thinks I'm conspiring with the Queen of England and the KGB to steal her fillings. I'll never be able to change the mind of the religious nut who believes Adam & Eve rode dinosaurs like the Flintstones. And I'll never be able to change the mind of someone who thinks thousands of Americans from all walks of life willingly participated in an act of treason and mass murder of their fellow Americans, that the hundreds needed to plan such an event did so and never talked, that the hundreds needed to recruit the thousands of participants never met anyone who said "no" and that no one has ever talked and that it all went down flawlessly to the last second and the NYFD was in on it and the airlines (who lost billions afterward) and the scores of structural engineers and architects and the eyewitnesses who watched a plane (not a missile) crash into the Pentagon, etc., etc. "Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary PROOF" - Carl Sagan. One last thing: Obama has been in office for just over a week. How is it that he's ruined the country? Bush, definitely.

    McG's bastardizing a once great franchise and the trailer was boring and homogenized.

    When the Transformers came out all the cartoon geeks blew their wads all over it and I fucking hated it, but I never watched the Transformer cartoons. Did the cartoon lovers hate it when they showed advance clips like all these G.I. Joe purists seem to? How can you guys get so worked up over such a bland, meaningless product? It was just a half-hour advert for toys, and granted the preview is only a few seconds long but everything I've seen so far makes me interested and looks pretty kick ass, so why the hate? This shit looks like it's taking something dated and retarded and making it cool and awesome. If you old-school Joe fans are so hardcore buy the cartoon on DVD, I'm sure it's out there somewhere, good god, it's got Refrigerator Perry in it dudes.Didn't it?

    by Illuminate

    I WISH SOMEONE IN HOLLYWOOD WOULD GROW BALLS LIKE JAMES "TERMINATOR 2-RATED R" CAMERON. Everyone who watched the cartoon are now full grown adults and GI Joe was entertaining back then but, now we want more: Sienna naked fucked Sharon Stone style and Duke blowing off Cobras head. But, that is not going to happen. I hope they make it as PG-13 as possible. I like it. It is kind of cheesy looking like The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It it has more realism than Skull than I am there. I am glad they didn't go the boring Borne Identity look aka make shit look fucking ugly like they are doing in most movies these days. I wished they had stuck to the original costumes more. Transformers looks ten times more close to the cartoon than this. Snake eyes looks bad ass. I hope they focus on his story. Also, Cobra Commander better have the bad ass voice. I could not believe that Micheal Bay (who is a genius) took out Megatrons cool voice. It was what made him cool like Darth Vadars voice. Sienna Miller looks hot as hell. Baronas was the least attractive in the cartoon when I watched it as a kid. It looks like she made that character the most attractive.

    by malificus

    The thing is people come to sites like AICN so they can (hopefully) get an early peek at some new upcoming property, and many directors these days know the value of that and try and get buzz going by releasing early action scenes and such. THEN, the very people who come here for just that sort of peek run roughshod over stuff when it is nowhere NEAR finished, hell, prejudge a 2 hour movie based on a few scant SECONDS of footage. Does that seem stupid to anyone else? These directors get excited about the work they do, hell you can bet when some action sequence is coming together and they get some new effects work in they're probably geeked as hell and WANT to show it off. Then they do and it's all this, and they probably shrug and wonder why they even bother. All you pissers that are complaining it isn't real GI Joe would do well to realize a whole bunch of people are working VERY HARD to produce this product JUST FOR YOU. I mean, if you were a parent and your kid came home with a crooked lump of clay and said they made you a pencil holder would you smash it over their heads and scream in their face:" You call that a pencil holder?!?

    Let's play it safe to avoid the cheese.

    by Orionsangels

    The Joes costumes all look similar. There's nothing to really differentiate them from one another. They kind of did that with the X-men movies as well. They try to play it safe by having everything look uniformed. If each one looked just like the cartoon or comic. It comes off cheesy like the street fighter movie.

    Yes. YES YES YES.

    by GregoryHarbin

    Take this from a guy who loved The Mummy and Transformers, but, I'm excited. This looks big and dumb. As long as I can still get QUALITY TV and movies elsewhere, I don't mind seeing an awesome stupid movie here and there.

    by wowsah156

    did they not watch Team america?! Thats this first thing that came into my head when i saw the Eiffel tower collapse. When the world is fed up seeing americans brandishing guns in foreign lands, this isnt going to paly well in Europe or Asia. not saying it looks bad. but the timing couldnt be worse.

    Whoever mentioned international box office...

    by rbatty024

    is probably right. International numbers have become more and more important over the years. If this bombs overseas maybe it will send the message that nobody wants to see rubber looking CGI and cheesy dialogue. A film can be fun and still be well crafted, just look at Iron Man or the first Pirates of the Carribean.

    I had a hard time reading your comment because you obviously have a hard time expressing yourself like a normal human being. Maybe you're 12 years old? If you're any older than that, I feel sorry for how poorly educated you are - your post is so rife with poor spelling, incoherent ideas, no use of syntax, nothing. It's just a pitiful plea to our educational system, "please help me!". But you say it all when you express how much you admire Mummy 3 and Van Helsing....it speaks volumes and basically says, "Yes, I am a lobotomized, lowest common denominator, Middle America moron." Good on ya lad. No reply needed after knowing you lack the capacity and education to even understand it.

    It would've been extremely relevant pre-OKCity

    by lynxpro

    The mythos of the GI Joe Marvel Comic would have been extremely relevant to be adapted to the big screen before the Oklahoma City bombing happened. Before that, the "Patriot" movement was gaining momentum. The Oklahoma City bombing killed that movement just as 9/11 made it virtually impossible for those "lovable freedom fighters" known as the IRA to continue raising money in the USA for their cause. In the Marvel Comic, Cobra Commander created his neo-fascist movement in the economic downturn that had hit Middle America. During Bill Clinton's first term, there was quite a bit of angst and paranoia in the American consciousness (look at the success of *The X-Files*). It would've really worked then. Now an adaption has to be all about action and not so heavy on plot. Of course, most old school GI Joe fans never read the comic book and only know the property via the substandard (in comparison) cartoon.

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 12:34 p.m. CST

    having said that...

    by lynxpro

    ...Snake Eyes vs. Storm Shadow looks wicked. Scarlett and Baroness look hot. Plus General Hawk is clearly in control and not some ridiculous Master Sarge like Duke which was probably the stupidest thing ever done by the cartoon (and not the comic).

  • Feb. 1, 2009, 12:49 p.m. CST

    The uniforms in the cartoon weren't THAT unrealistic

    by zooch

    This is truly GI JOE in name only...and they don't even use that name apparently. Give it another title and you wouldn't even know it was GI JOE. If it even resembled the cartoon slightly we'd be geeking out right now, but we aren't.

    Come on, guys.

    by Orbots Commander

    You have to go into seeing this movie with the expectation limbo bar set pretty friggin' low. As in, ankle level. We're talking about a movie with character names like General Hawk, The Baroness and Cobra Commander, directed by Van Helsing's Stephen Sommers, starring Marlon Wayans. And I'm not knocking it; the trailer is marketing the flick as an action movie for ten year olds, and that's fine. I can't wait to download the torrent.

    First things first, you can't a special missions anti terrorist force dressed all in black.And there's no ARAH as Hollywood has gone politically correct. (Breaker is an Arab? WTMF?)
