Okay, these featurettes have been flying hot and heavy over the past few days, so let’s catch a breath and get them all gathered up in one place shall we?
We’ve had “behind the scenes” we’ve had TV spots, and we’ve had the great 20 second character profiles. All of them, when assembled, make for some very cool pre-film hype. I can tell you, I’m flipping out over here right now. Lots of great footage, I can’t even believe we’re almost within 2 weeks of this thing.

Apparently Paramount was not satisfied to simply reveal video today, they also wanted to blast out a few promotional images as well. We get great high quality pictures of the White House, Storm Shadow, and Cobra Commander flanked by his troops. More coolness from Paramount and G.I. Joe today! I first saw the images on Comingsoon.net, check them out mirrored below.
We originally saw this featurette recording from a smart phone camera as it aired on WWE Raw, but now IMDB has the video in HD quality, and it is awesome. Yes, the same footage, yes the same music, but with some added behind the scenes stuff, this is a really great look at the film.
Between the character vignettes, the TV spots, and now this… wow. G.I. Joe: Retaliation video overload. Unfortunately the video is not embeddable (yet), but check it out at IMDB.com.
Big thanks to John from JoeArmory for the heads up.
Ha! I was just on Twitter talking back and forth with nailbiter111 from Comic Book Movie, and said that the only possible video vignette there was left to do would be one for Jinx. Then, all of a sudden, there it was. Paramount International has loaded up on video today. Check out Jinx below!
The formula remains similar… scattered new footage, lots of re-used footage… a whole metric ton of AWESOME.
Almost seems like Paramount and Twitziller were on the same page today. Both chose to focus on Firefly today, and the effect is similar. Paramount’s 19 second vignette shows off some great new footage, and some spoken word as well… is it just me or does that first “Firefly….” sound like it might just be Cobra Commander speaking?
We see streams of rocket fire, nasty explosions, and Firefly “making things go boom”. Who can complain? Check it out embedded below!
