Click above for first high-res official pics from the G.I. Joe movie

The HUMMER HX concept would have made one hell of a live-action VAMP in the upcoming G.I. Joe flick, but we have it on very good authority that this particular bit of vehicular dream casting is not to be. The HUMMER HX/G.I. Joe rumor is one we've been trying to chase down since early last week when we first heard it, and we finally cornered a well-placed source who explained that HUMMERs will appear in the movie, but not the HX. If Clutch had made the cut to be part of the movie's cast of characters, he'd probably be really upset right now. Bummer for GM, too, as HX could have been this movie's Bumblebee. On an unrelated note, it would appear that director Stephen Sommers' wardrobe department got the look for Snake Eyes exactly right. (Ray Park, who played Darth Maul in Phantom Menace, is in the suit.)

      lol, this may be a bad idea to make this seeing as they could ruin fond memories from my childhood, however Snakes Eyes looks bad@ss.

      who is going to watch a GI Joe movie?

      Ray Park looks bad-ass. Then again, he couldn't look much goofier than Toad from the first X-Men flick.

      That said, this movie is going to suck donkey balls. Stephen Sommers is the same guy who directed The League of Extradinary Gentleman and Van Helsing. *sigh* So much for the run of decent summer blockbuster comic flicks lately. On another note, I heard from somebody who saw a rough cut of Iron Man and The Dark Knight, both of those movies are very VERY good.

      well, i think it's gonna be one heck of a movie. when there were rumors that there was gonna be an x-men movie, i told myself how absurd that would be, and that hollywood can't pull it off. But they did! and then i saw spiderman, fantastic four, hellboy, and others. i'm not too thrilled about channing tatum playing duke, but as for the rest i'm kinda excited to see how it all pans out (even CC). i bet this one will top the box office...i bet my socks on it..

      Probably the same folks who'd watch a Transformers movie.

      I await The Swat Cats.
        • 7 Years Ago
        LMAO! Swat Kats!

        But Snake Eyes does look badass. However, I don't think a Stormshadow vs Snakes Eyes battle royal will be enough to save this movie.

        Or maybe it will. I heard the guy who played Seraph in The Matrix: Reloaded is going to be Storm Shadow.

        To be honest, I had no idea there was a G.I. Joe movie being made, but I'm not surprised. I doubt it'll be good, it's hard to take a cheesy cartoon and comic and translate it well into movie/tv form.

        But we'll see. A lot of people said and thought Transformers was going to suck and bomb, and it not only was fairly decent for a cheesy action flick; it had a hot girl who worked on cars. That one facet shines out over everything else.

        Somehow add that in G.I. Joe, and I'll buy the DVD.

      Alex Nunez you need to go check these out and read this thread. I'm not calling you out just trying to show you the truth, Your Source Was Dead Wrong.

      They're making a GI Joe movie?! Good grief.

      I suppose there will be a He-Man movie shortly thereafter?
      • 7 Years Ago
      I was actually expecting either Thundercats or Jem and the Holograms would be next as He-Man has already been (badly) done.

      The pillaging of our youth continues, o fellow children of the 1980s.

      Doods, GI Joe The Movie is going to be teh leetzors!

      In a way, the dood playing CC makes sense. CC is a weasely little turd, much like Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, who for years I wanted to punch in the face. Repeatedly.

      Anyways, the movie follows the comic book, moreso than the movie. Hopefully, at least one person will actually get shot, albeit probably not with a laser.

        BTW, Qwik Kick is teh sux.

        Uber props goes to Alex Nunez for the sweet link to the GI Joe Database. Diggin' the bio on Clutch.
      • 7 Years Ago
      As long as there is a good fight between Qwik Kick and Storm Shadow I'll be happy with it.

      Oh, and Eric, there already was a He-Man movie called Masters of the Universe with Dolf Lundgren in the late eighties!
