Joe: The Rise of Cobra” would be the greatest movie ever. As it stands, I’m far older than that, but I still think the movie is fantastic.
Anyway, a few days ago I attended the New York City press junket for “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”. While there I got to speak with director Stephen Sommers, producer Lorenzo de Bonaventura, and a few of the cast. The interview after the jump is with Channing Tatum and Marlon Wayans. During our interview we talked about the lack of Public Service Announcements (PSA’s), the online buzz, the worldwide tour they’ve been on, and the toilet’s of Japan. I’m not kidding about that last part. Take a look:

- What’s the best part of doing a worldwide publicity tour
- Marlon talks about the toilets of Japan. Trust me, it’s very funny stuff.
And here’s a classic PSA in case you’ve never seen one:
