Paramount Pictures have revealed a series of brand new posters from "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" via MySpace. The one-sheets showcase six major characters, Channing Tatum's Duke, Marlon Wayans' Ripcord, Sienna Miller's The Baroness, Rachel Nichols' Scarlett, Ray Park' Snake Eyes and Lee Byung-hun's Storm Shadow, in their fighting outfits.

"G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" is set ten years in the future and chronicles the rise of the Cobra Organization. Focusing on Duke and Ripcord's introduction to the elite G.I. Joe team, it follows the team from the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps as they fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the Cobra in plunging the world into chaos.

Based on the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy franchise, the action adventure sees "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" producer Stephen Sommers serving as the film's helmer. Apart from Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Ray Park and Lee Byung-hun, it also features Dennis Quaid, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christopher Eccleston. Paramount Pictures have set the movie to arrive in U.S. theaters on August 7.

I agree. They look more like the X-men than GI Joe.

This costuming is yet another sign that this movie is going to ruin a possible franchise before it even begins. One and done! Here's hoping the trailer is better than the posters.
