A Ton Of G.I. Joe Character Shots

A few weeks back, Paramount ran into a bit of a snag on its G.I. Joe campaign. A plan to slowly reveal the characters on a number of websites was scuppered when pictures of everyone turned up on WWTDD.com. And they were pictures that, we can now tell, were unfinished and looked, well, a little cheap. So, to combat any further leaks, the studio has released much slicker looking character shots of everyone all at once. Click the images below for bigger versions.

The pictures show Duke (Channing Tatum), Destro (Christopher Eccleston), The Baroness (Sienna Miller), Storm Shadow (Byung-Hun Lee), Breaker (Said Taghmaoui), General Hawk (Dennis Quaid), Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) and Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje).

As we've said before, G.I. Joe didn't particularly figure in our childhoods, given that they were entirely non-American based, so we can't tell you if these are faithful recreations of the cartoon series. Or, for that matter, who most of these characters are without some major Wikipediaing and a news story that turns into many thousands of words. But do you G.I. Joe fans like what you see? And are you G.I. Joe neophytes enticed to see Stephen Sommers' movie?
