G. I. Joe Posters

in: Action


So, here we have three men and two women. All standing against pretty much the same background, all dressed in very similar black clothes, all doing some “cool” poses and all carrying generic looking guns. Makes the characters look all the same.

But their faces should add a good deal of uniqueness to each poster, right? Oh yeah, that’s right, they decided to cut half of the face of each character, completely robbing them of expressions, so that won’t work.

Where they actively trying to make these look like generic models dressed in black?

But fear not, here is something completely different, a guy dressed in dark gray clothes!



Man, the visual range of this film is going to be stunning isn’t it?

    Totally agree with you. Although these still might be better than the first series that they released (http://www.impawards.com/2009/g_i_joe_ver3.html) which were treated so much like the Star Trek character posters (http://www.impawards.com/2009/star_trek_xi_ver14.html) that I wondered if Paramount was even aware that they had two different movies. Even the gun on the G.I. Joe poster looks a little like a Star Trek Phaser.

    As a side note, BLT seems to love using sparks on action posters. They used them on this series, on Transformers, one of the Iron Man posters, Die Hard 4, The Dark Knight, and even Beowulf. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, just something I noticed from them that I haven’t seen so much from other shops.

    I’m sorry, but these GI JOE posters look ridiculous. I think they must have been designed by a 20 year old who never watched them saturday mornings growing up.

    [...] I complained that in the last batch of posters the characters in G.I. Joe all looked the same. Well, in this poster a much better job is done of distinguishing the bad guys from the good guys. The good guys are surrounded by blue flames and background. The bad guys are surrounded by red flames and background. I think. I mean, that is the tradition, right? Though hey all look like bad guys too me. [...]

    I kind of like them. My wife and I are movie poster collectors and having these 5 (or 6) on a wall (if I had the wall space) would look pretty impressive.

    I used to watch GI Joe animated series wayback in my childhood days. the movie version of GI Joe is definitely the best.

    When i was a kid, i watched GI Joe animated version on TV all the time. GI Joe Movie is also a very good rendition of the original GI Joe cartoon series.
