G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra Super Bowl Ad


For some odd reason, Hulu.com was missing this from their roster of Super Bowl ads. But, you can always count on Youtube to have it. This is another movie ad that I happened to catch during the Super Bowl that piqued my interest. I had head that Stephen Sommers, of Mummy and Van Helsing infamy, had been working on a G.I. Joe movie, and to tell you the truth, based on his previous work, I wasn't all that excited about it. But now, seeing this amazing 30 or so seconds of footage, I'm leaning towards slightly excited. It could still blow, and this might be the best footage that the movie has to offer, but I'd like to think of myself as an optimist in 2009. So I'm going to give Sommers the benefit of the doubt, and I'll give his little "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" movie a shot when it comes out later this year.

I see a lot of love for G.I. Joe but nothing for Star Trek or Transformers. Maybe if they did a three-way crossover with those properties. It would have to involve some time travel, but Star Trek already did that, so it's not out of the question.
