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.
Click the “Read the Rest of the Story” link below to get a nice, well-organized rundown of all of the character profiles that have aired so far:
We were treated to a fantastic Storm Shadow featurette yesterday, and today we are getting some Bruce Willis action! Although there isn’t as much new footage in this one as there was yesterday, I am absolutely loving these behind-the-scenes features, and hope they’re planning on doing them for every character. This could be great.
Check it out on YouTube, and see it embedded below.
This was first revealed on Paramount International, but it was not viewable in the United States. Thanks to MegaTrailer for getting it uploaded, and for Comic Book Movie for mentioning that it was up for American audiences.
Looks like Iron Man fans don’t get to have all the fun today!
MSN Movies has posted a cool little snippet of footage from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, featuring a conversation between Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) and Joe Colton (Bruce Willis). We’ve seen most of this scene already in various trailers and TV spots, but it’s pretty awesome to see it all stitched together, with some added footage afterwards.
You can find it on MSN Movies. Unfortunately it looks like they do not allow embedding, but hop on over to check it out!
Over on HissTank.com the always reliable TheGabrielAngel has posted some very cool stereoscopic 3D posters from G.I. Joe: Retaliation. These posters feature some new looks at Cobra Commander, Firefly, Roadblock, and Joe Colton.
The only hitch? You need 3D glasses to get the effect, and without them… they look pretty funky.
I know I used the whole mother flocker line when Bruce Willis was first announced as Joe Colton in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, but since he’s..well.. totally bald, I’m not sure that makes sense. This has been one of the figures that many folks out there have been waiting on pins and needles for. I mean, who doesn’t want a 1:18 scale Bruce Willis/John McLane figure for their G.I. Joe universe?
Even with mostly reused parts, the eerily accurate head sculpt really brings the character to life. Check out the full review on my G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review Page, or follow the link below:
