Japanese Trailer for G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA

     July 6, 2009


A new trailer for “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” just his YouTube but this trailer is different because it’s in Japanese and has a half-second of footage showing Cobra Commander (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt).  It completely changes the tone and look of the film.  Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration.  In fact, it looks exactly the same except it has Japanese subtitles.  But silly, CGI-heavy action is universal and I have a feeling that our Japanese friends will really appreciate it.  After all, they practically invented fake-looking effects destroying cities.  Personally, I’m just hoping that “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” doesn’t take itself too seriously, has a few jokes, and just wants to make you smile, like a retarded puppy that tells jokes.  If it can get away with that, then it will be better than “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”.  Hell, it will beat “Transformers” if it doesn’t clock in at two-and-a-half hours.

Hit the jump to check out the new trailer.  “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” hits theatres on August 7th.
