New G.I. Joe: RoC trailer blows

in Apolitical by
Here’s a new trailer for the not so anticipated film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. You may have seen this trailer attached to Year One in theaters. In this trailer they try to show the comedic side of GI Joe. I must emphasize that ‘TRY’ is the keyword here. If you thought the movie was gonna be cheesy, then this new clip makes it look like a Chicago deep dish. Marlon Wayans and those effing Accelerator Suits get most of the screen time here

My excitement for this movie was already pretty low. Now with all the reports floating around that director Stephen Sommers was banned from the editing room, due to G.I. Joe’s horrible performance at test screenings, my expectations are lower than ever.

Of course I will go see this movie. Curiosity and the sheer fact that it’s G.I Joe up there on the big screen is enough for me to give it a chance. But even my hope that Snake Eyes will be this movie’s saving grace, is slowly and surely diminishing. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, it’s up to you now. Please pull through… please.

What side of the G.I Joe fence are you on? Are there any shreds of hope to hang on to? Let’s try to cheer each other up! If all else fails, Sienna Miller is ridiculously beautiful. (h/t to Geek Tyrant).
