G.I. Joe 2 Title Revealed

G.I. Joe 2 Title Revealed

The recent G.I. Joe film series began in 2009 with the release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The film directed by Stephen Sommers as his follow up to the first two Mummy films and the later Van Helsing reportedly generated approximately $300 million in worldwide gross revenues prior to its release to the home movie market. Despite strong performance given the generous production budget for the film it was not considered a resounding success.

The film generally played as a light action adventure film, filled with cheesy dialogue and hammy performances and was met with a mixed reaction. News on a possible sequel has taken some time in coming but is starting to trickle through with the announcement of a title for the sequel.

Rumoured to be filming form August to November this year, the sequel is tentatively titled “G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes”, and it appears that Stephen Sommers will not be returning to film the sequel, whether this means there will be a shift in the tone of the franchise for its next outing, we will have to wait and see.

We’ll bring you more on development of the sequel as it’s revealed.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
