After pushing almost a year from G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s initial 2012 release date Paramount has just released a couple of recruitment propaganda posters along with recruitment video for Cobra.
If you know GI Joe tradition you’ll know that Cobra are ‘the bad guys,’ but this video isn’t telling you that at all, because here, they’re an army like any other army. Sometimes, it’s fun to play the bad guy at Paramount.
Directed by Jon M. Chu, the film based on Hasbro’s iconic toy line will show what the members of G.I. Joe (Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Bruce Willis, etc.) will have to do to stop Cobra from taking over the world.
The newly-converted-to-3D G.I. Joe Retaliation opens everywhere on March 28th, 2013.
Also check out cool posters for the upcoming sequel which pose a serious question.
