More new web-based content is flying through the internetz today, this time from the official G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA movie website. They’ve added some really cool 3-dimensional looks at some of the various locations in the film, as well as bios for some key characters in the upper right-hand part of the screen.
Lots of really neat tidbits to get folks fired up for the movie. I can’t speak for anyone else, but it’s working for me. Thanks to tkprime’s Twitter Feed for the info.
Coinciding with next week’s release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA, MTV.com has uploaded a G.I. Joe-themed website with tons of information and detail on the characters, locations, and hardware in the film. Some great character bios as well as a first look at some of the technology, like COBRA’s Trident Submarine, the G.I. Joe Jet Pack, and even more. You can also comb through their site to locate all of the hidden items, then submit an entry form to win prizes!
