We typically regard the upcoming G.I. Joe movie as a necessity we'll have to suffer through before the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Garbage Pail Kids epic, but that's not to say there aren't elements that intrigue us.

Sadly, the main one isn't present in this spate of Matrix Reloaded-reminiscent characters posters: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who's been cast as the villainous Cobra Commander. That sort of unconventional choice almost makes us want to see the finished film; then we remember that it's directed by bigger-budgeted Peter Hyams clone Stephen Sommers (Van Helsing, The Mummy) and suddenly, all the CG in the world wouldn't be able to place us in a theater seat.
