An international version of the full-length G.I. Joe trailer arrived online yesterday, but we decided to wait a little while longer for the domestic trailer -- and here it is, courtesy of MySpace. A lot of these web guys make me laugh; some of them think Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is Epic OMG FTW Awesome, but then crap on G.I. Joe by calling it silly, lame and a waste of time. Truthfully, it's apples and oranges to me -- they're both big-budgeted boxes of popcorn entertainment that don't promise to be anything more than "Wow, that looked pretty cool."
And since yesterday brought the new trailer for Transformers 2, it's kinda fitting that today we get the new one for G.I. Joe -- since they're both based on '80s toy lines, they both feature more explosions than I care to count and they both feature good guys battling the kind of bad guys who are hell-bent on destroying EVERYTHING! (Except, when it comes to G.I. Joe, they seem to be going after the French first.) Anyway, check out the G.I. Joe trailer below, and let us know what you think (you've probably already figured out my favorite part ...).
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra hits theaters on August 7.
