Yeah, I know, not exactly the Oscars, but the MTV Movie Awards has listed their nominations, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has 6 of them. The nominations are below:
Hmmm…well, we all know the MTV Movie Awards are cheese-worthy and are more for the spectacle than the actual awards…and any award that considers Channing Tatum for anything based on his role in The Rise of Cobra doesn’t get much confidence from me.
But hey, slow news day, so there ya go. Hit up MTV.com for the full run down.
IDW issued a press release yesterday outlining their plans for producing their G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA movie adaptation as a weekly limited series in July, quite a ways before the actual film hits theaters. MTV.com Splash Page landed an exclusive image from this adaptation, and posted an article here.
I’ve also got the images in the article mirrored below.
The Splash Page, a devision of MTV.com has posted an article about the IDW comic books, mostly talking about the series extensions we reported on yesterday. Quotes of interest include:
“Calling this “the year of G.I. Joe,” IDW announced that its “G.I. Joe: Origins” miniseries published in partnership with Hasbro will become an ongoing series with current writer Chuck Dixon handling the next pair of “Origins” issues, and veteran “G.I. Joe” writer (and live-action “G.I. Joe” movie consultant) Larry Hama taking over for a subsequent three-issue story. IDW’s “G.I. Joe: Cobra” miniseries will also be extended via an extra “G.I. Joe: Cobra Special” issue at the end of its 4-issue run.”
Along with the report, MTV got some sneak images of upcoming covers for the G.I. Joe: COBRA series. Check those out below!
MTV.com sat down and caught up with Channing Tatum regarding his role in The Rise of COBRA as well as Fighting, a much smaller scale film on the brink of being released to theaters. In the interview, Tatum mentions he originally wanted the role of Snake Eyes and confirms that the mysterious G.I. Joe commando does indeed stay silent throughout the entire film.
