The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien @ 11:35 PM EST
So, if anyone has read my review, they know I have a few questions and issues about some changes in dialog or events from the upcoming film. Well, El Mayimbe from Latino Review sat down with Stephen Sommers and got a great interview, and some awesome details about the film and potential sequels! There are some minor spoilers, so I’ll fully discuss this after the jump.
I’ve gotta spend a few minutes setting up the scene. Last night was an adventure and a half. The three plus hour drive to Warwick, Rhode Island was mostly uneventful, though I did hit some Targets on the way down and got myself some Wave 3 troop builders… but no Pit Commandos, dammit. However, once the Charity Screening event started, it was just that…an event! Mingling in the crowd with so many other folks from the general public as well as Hasbro people, Stephen Sommers, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, media folks, and yes, Rachel Nichols, was an amazing spectacle. Something a small town boy like me doesn’t get to experience very often.
Perhaps it was the high from the event itself, or perhaps it was because I was in the front of the theater on a monster screen, but the film was..well…it was nuts. Tons of action, lots of stuff happening all at once, yet not too much to keep track of. My head was sorta swimming a bit, but now that I’ve had some time to mull it over, I’m ready to post my review(s).
Yeah, I did two of them. How lame is that? A lot of the info in the two is the same, but I’ve separated them into a “Spoiler Free” version and a “Spoiler Full” version. You can choose which path you take. A word of warning, the Spoiler Full one has a LOT more detail, because, obviously, being able to talk about character specifics and specific events helps me to flesh out the review a bit better.
I knew it was going to be a good night when Stephen Sommers stood in front of the crowd and said “If you have to use the rest room, use it now, because there won’t be time to do it when the film starts”.
New Era Cap, the leading headwear designer and manufacturer, is proud to announce the release of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero cap series in conjunction with the highly anticipated “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” movie that hits theaters on Friday, August 7th. This new signature 59FIFTY cap collection draws inspiration from G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, featured in the upcoming movie and in the popular G.I Joe comic book series.
In total there are four caps in this original 59FIFTY collector’s series available for purchase. Two of the caps feature the trademark COBRA – the symbol of the fictional nemesis of the G.I. Joe team. The first is an all black fitted cap with the iconic red COBRA on the front. The second cap is yellow fitted hat featuring a red COBRA on the front with a distinctive green snakeskin brim. The final two caps in the series are known as the “Snake Eyes” collector’s caps. Each of these multi-colored caps brings to life the classic images and characters of the original G.I. Joe comic series to life in unique design patterns created by the world famous New Era design team.
I gotta say, those look pretty cool. I’m really loving the yellow COBRA sigil with the snakeskin lid. Very unique!
