G.I. JOE Trailer 3 Online

IGN has the new trailer for 'G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra'. We're not really sure what's new here but if you liked the previous trailers you'll like this one.

'G.I. Joe' arrives in theaters August 7th.



It's not really a comic-to-film adaptation. We've been reporting on the 'Sherlock Holmes' movie here in C2F largely because it was said to be based on a graphic novel adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's character that was being developed simultaneously with the film. At this point we have to call hijinks on the producers for attaching Hollywood's favorite new buzzword "graphic novel" where it doesn't belong.

On the other hand, we do love a good trailer. This one is running with that new 'Harry Potter' movie all the kids are talking about...



A portion of Gusto's Marvel/Simpsons/T-Mobile mural

The Simpsons merge with Marvel in NYC!

Since it's a slow news Friday, let's go completely off-topic and mention some cool graffiti that's turned up in New York City. The giant mural depicts a huge battle fought by Marvel heroes and villains, except they're all drawn in the style of 'The Simpsons'.

Of course, it's not truly graffiti as points out. Rather, it's a co-op work of art by famed artist Gutso who was permitted to paint on the side of the T-Mobile as long as he included a corporate logo in the mural.

Hit Gutso's site for the complete panoramic image of the mural.

Sherlock Holmes looks like it's gonna be GOOD!  Really lookin' forward to it.

That mural looks pretty frickin' sweet as well.

That GI Joe trailer was more of the same shit....and tha'ts what it looks like. The special effects are cartoon-ish and I can't stand the "power" suit idea...they ripped that off from Starship Troopers (the book not the movie) but they didn't need to do that and I would be curious what the thought process was involved in that whole idea.

I don' thave sound at work so I can't comment on Sherlock though I'm always a sucker for a good mystery.

Wiseguy 7/17/2009 8:28:59 AM

Ditto, Holmes is gonna rock. I feel a little sorry for him that he has to feel the wrath of the titanic AVATAR which opens the week prior but I'm sure RDJ will draw enough people in to make it a success.

GI Joe will be better than Transformers 2. It may not make as much bank but the film will be better. Still looking forward to it, it looks fun and I don't see anyone as annoying as Shia's parents or Turturro, that alone gives the Joes a leg up.

Flint521466 7/17/2009 8:47:05 AM

I don't know Wise....Marlon Wayans can be pretty fuckin' annoying.  Does Sherlock Holmes come out in December?  I was thinkin' it was October.

I just had a great idea! We should have a Maniacs Festival. Where we all come together and watch a new movie, and then we can all square up with each other and fight out our difference of opinions and past beefs. haha!

Wiseguy 7/17/2009 9:18:54 AM

Flint, Sherlock comes out Christmas day

VIOlator, that sounds like a great idea for a cruise. I bet we'd have the most "man overboard" alarms ever. I'd come only if scythe made an appearance and if I had anything to say that's all he'd make

therockdltj 7/17/2009 9:25:00 AM

didn't they have power suits in the G I Joe sigma 6 cartoon that came out a couple years ago?

SgtTechCom 7/17/2009 10:54:21 AM

haha Real American Heros baby!

Snake Eyes still rocks ! 

Holmes looks outstanding.

spiderhero 7/17/2009 11:02:16 AM

Marlon Wayans G.I.Joe = CRAPPY idea. Unless he is cannon fodder. Then I'd be OK with it.

jdnobody 7/17/2009 11:25:43 AM

I have missed the "buddy cop" movies from the 80s and 90s so I am really looking forward to Sherlock Holmes.  Looks fantastic!  Plus I'm looking forward to see Guy Richie's style back in another good film.


From everything I've read, GI Joe should be, at the very least, somewhat entertaining...I hope that this is just a set up for the "Joe vs Cobra" we know.
