It looks like the upcoming live-action film based on the Hasbro's toy lines of action figure won't be known as simply "G.I. Joe". Moments prior, online publications have gone beserk over the possible fact that the Stephen Sommers-directed movie maybe given a subtitle and thus called "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra".
Though no official announcement has been made by the production house of the new title of the movie, a teaser poster for the tidbit has popped up at the Cinema EXPO in Amsterdam, Netherlands and in it, it is revealed the full title of the upcoming action movie. The poster which has been outed first by Film N1 and can be seen below displays Channing Tatum fully costumed as Duke and sporting what looks like to be a sniper gun on his hands.
Bringing the battle between the special operation team G.I. Joe and evil organization Cobra into life, "G.I. Joe" follows the story of the patriotic team led by Duke as they fight against Cobra commander and his force to gain freedom wherever there is trouble. Co-starring Tatum in the movie are Dennis Quaid, Sienna Miller, Ray Park, Rachel Nichols, Marlon Wayans, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christopher Eccleston and many others. The film is set for August 7, 2009 release.
UPDATE 06/24/08: Following the outing of above teaser posters, two more character posters have been previewed through Film N1. The newer posters display Baroness and Snake Eyes.
