G.I. Joe Opens This Weekend: Are You Excited For It?

I'll admit it: I forgot about this G.I. Joe movie. I didn't realize until today that it's coming out this Friday, Aug. 7. This doesn't necessarily bode well for the action film, but then again, it does have a strong fan base already and is garnering some positive reviews.

Here's a synopsis: "An elite military unit comprised of special operatives known as G.I. Joe, operating out of The Pit, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer."

Are you excited to see this popcorn flick? Or, do you just not care?

I think it sounds good but I am a little worried with it only being rated PG and them throughing some comedy in there too. I saw a preview for this movie when I took my daughter to see G-Force so I am thinking its more for the younger kids today and not for the older people that grew up with the original. I guess I pictured it to be very jam packed with action like Transformers but it seems to be more child friendly.

This will be payback for you girls dragging your guys to The Ugly Truth and The Proposal :) I look forward to watching it. I wont see it opening day or anything, but I think it will be pretty entertaining.

It's not really my cup of tea, these OTT action movies - but I am only interested in seeing it because of Christopher Eccleston :) I'd watch him in anything (clearly) and hope the movie doesn't suck for him. I wish we got to see more of him... Miss him as Doctor Who.

The actual veteran that G.I. Joe was based on stipulated that he always wanted the toy to be an American special forces soldier. I think it is really disrespectful for the film industry to simply ignore that request. I will not be putting my 8 dollars in their pockets just to mildly entertain myself for 90 minutes.

Honestly, I had no idea it was opening this weekend, or even that there was going to be a movie called GIJoe. Shows my enthusiasm?

I can't honestly remember even seeing a trailer for GI Joe, so that really doesn't bode well for it.

G.I Joe has been an iconic name for over 50 years. I wouldnt be surprised if it opened up with a 60 million dollar plus weekend. The people in my market are really stoked about this movie. Especially those in their 20s. I get burned out by the summer special effects extravaganza. But, I am looking forward to G I Joe. Cheers~ Grantz

Same here -- I was unimpressed with the trailer. The movie had a different look from the comics and T.V. animation. If I didn't know better, I would never have thought it was G.I. Joe.

No thank you. The trailer looks silly and I'm not a fan of Channing Tatum. I'll wait to Netflix it.
