G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra Official Full Length Trailer

The Blot’s been ragging on G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra ever since I saw the very first photo of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander. The movie’s teaser trailer didn’t do much to help put my mind at ease, but then yesterday I saw G.I. Joe’s first official full length movie trailer. Now I’m not saying Rise of Cobra is going to be great (or even good for that matter), but I can now at least see it has the potential to be a legit summer blockbuster and fill the need many of us have for some mindless entertainment with lots of action and explosions.

Do you know what I liked most about this new G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra trailer? There wasn’t a single scene featuring Cobra Commander. My recommendation to G.I. Joe director Stephen Sommers, focus more on Destro and the Baroness and cut Cobra Commander’s screen time in half. Even without the mask, Christopher Eccleston seems to exude Destro’s confidence and bravado. So thankfully that's one less concern I have to worry about. I am now trying to be cautiously optimistic, but I still have serious concerns that this film will end up a huge flop. The Blot's waited 25 years for the first ever live action adaptation of my all time favorite toy line and I really hope Hasbro and Paramount don’t screw it up!

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra deploys into theaters on Friday, August 7th, 2009.
