G.I. Joe - Le réveil du Cobra - Bande-annonce 1 (Anglais sous-titré)
Sorry guys, just not digging it:
-CG looks painfully apparent.
-Heavy Duty is now a freaking limey. HEAVY DUTY IS A LIMEY!
-Baroness is now AMERICAN.
-This movie is called RISE OF COBRA, yet there's no sign of Cobra at all. Not to mention the villain is Destro and Destro's soldiers. Why did they call the movie Rise of Cobra and yet neglect to put Cobra in it?
-Think about it guys. Today is 4/30. Just to put things in perspective the movie comes out in a little over THREE MONTHS. THREE MONTHS. This is a big summer $170 million movie. Before this all we had was the 30 second Super Bowl spot. Usually for a big summer tentpole, this is the type of trailer we see like six months before a movie comes out. This is more like a slightly longer teaser trailer when we should be getting more like a full trailer right now.
-I see a similar problem right now in Transformers/GI JOE like with Iron Man/TIH. Transformers 2 is getting the bigger push, and GI JOE is suffering as a result in the hype/promotion/marketing/buildup department. But I wonder how much faith Paramount truly has in GI JOE right now. They just seem very cautious with it.
-People cannot forget what this movie has in common with Dragonball Evolution. Rushed into production during the WGA strike. Kind of shows.
-Unfortunately the biggest vibe I got from this trailer was basically this: TEAM AMERICA. Without puppets and except this time . . . the joke is on the audience not movies TEAM AMERICA was making fun of.

The battle suits are way over the top, and all the characters have been done wrong...ALL!!! Not one done right. At first i was upset they left Firefly out, but now i am glad he is not in it, so they can't mess him up like they did the rest.
When Cobra needs the impossible done, they call me.

I hate the mouth more than anything. The plastic, rubbery torso clashes horribly with the cargo military pants.

Every scene with Soldiers in TF1 and the upcoming TF2 is more G.I. Joe than this travesty.
This looks like a Live-Action spoof of Team America, which at least had a cool theme song^^

First, with respect to the marketing: you have to remember that Paramount has THREE huge movies they're pushing for the summer -- G.I. JOE, TRANSFORMERS and STAR TREK. I read an article recently that the studios combined advertising budget for the summer releases will be -- get this -- one BILLION dollars. The issue for Paramount is how to maximize revenue for each of their films -- and putting competing advertising out there for each of their films (which essentially target the same audiences) is a tightrope act. Thus, they're focusing on STAR TREK until its release, and I fully expect that they'll be doing the same for TRANSFORMERS (there really hasn't been a lot of advertising for TRANSFORMERS thus far either, and it isn't because the studio doesn't believe they're going to make a hell of a lot of money on that movie, because they do) after that. There will some G.I. JOE advertising leading up to the release of TRANSFORMERS -- and then I expect Paramount will begin the big push for the release in August, at which point G.I. JOE will be the one and only film they're pushing (at least it's the only one targeting this specific demographic that I'm aware of).
With respect to the RISE OF COBRA thing... Well, it's about the rise of Cobra. Which is to say, it doesn't look like Cobra is really going to be around until the end of the film. At which point they will have risen. But you won't see a lot of trailer footage from the end of a movie, generally (when I do, I'm usually pissed about it).
