(Updated: Three more photos added below!)
A quintet of pictures from Stephen Sommer’s upcoming G I Joe have hit the web, with the studio dishing them out to various sites. But there’s no need to go clicking all over as we have them all collected in one place for you.
I’m not that impressed with them, though. When some cast photos leaked a few weeks back*, I noted that the Joe team uniforms all looked the same, a vast departure from the look of the action figures/comic/cartoon characters. The newly released photos feature Breaker, played by Saïd Taghmaoui, and Heavy Duty, played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, weren’t in the batch of leaked photos, the armor the two are sporting is similar to what was seen in the other photos.
Moving on to the bad guys, we see Christopher Eccelson as Destro, the arms merchant who is the main villain of the film. If fans are waiting to see what he looks like in his famous metal mask, they’ll have to wait as Destro only gets it in the final scenes of the film and its probably a reveal they’re going to hold to their chest as long as possible.
Those who caught those earlier leaked photos will recognize the costumes on Sienna Miller as the Baroness and Byung-hun Lee as the ninja Storm Shadow. Nothing new to see here and that includes nothing new that instills any confidence in the production.
* Which I’m sure that no one right-clicked and saved on their hard drive, because that would be wrong…
Update: Three more pictures of Joe Team members have shown up. The first two of Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) showcase some more shiny black armor. What a surprise. In the last picture General Hawk (Dennis Quaid) is grumpy because Ferris Bueller looks better in a beret than he does.
