Paramount Pictures have released six brand new promotional photos from Channing Tatum and Dennis Quaid-starring live-action adaptation of Hasbro's 'G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero' toy franchise.
A number of brand new "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" pictures have been unraveled. Three of the new photos present some members of the G.I. Joe team, the other two take the focus on Sienna Miller's The Baroness, while one displays the battle between Lee Byung-Hun's Storm Shadow and Ray Park's Snake Eyes.
From the three G.I. Joe photos, one highlights on Channing Tatum's Duke who is pointing up a gun to someone behind the camera. The other one sees Duke and Marlon Wayans' Ripcord standing in front of what seems to be accelerator suits. The last of the three exhibits Duke, Dennis Quaid's General Hawk, Said Taghmaoui's Breaker, Rachel Nichols' Scarlett, and Ripcord.
Based on the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy franchise, "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" is set ten years in the future and chronicling the rise of the Cobra Organization. It also revolves around Duke and Ripcord's introduction to the elite G.I. Joe team, and 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.
Directed by "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" producer Stephen Sommers, the action movie sees the likes of Channing Tatum, Dennis Quaid, Rachel Nichols, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Christopher Eccleston among the cast ensemble. It is scheduled to arrive in U.S. theaters on August 7.
