In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies, You Think You Know TV, and Post Credits comes a brand new YouTube series: Top 5! Each week (or so; look we’re busy guys), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
The release of Magic Mike XXL is less than two weeks away and Channing Tatum is apparently all out of f–cks to give. The actor stopped by the Howard Stern Show and decided to get brutally honest about a few things, resulting in a few quotes that surely have a few behind-the-scenes people writing frantic emails about the repercussions of one of the most well-liked actors in modern Hollywood speaking his mind. The short version: Tatum really hates those G.I. Joe movies.
Despite two wildly different approaches with ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’ and ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation,’ Paramount still hasn’t managed to get their big screen take on everyone’s second favorite ‘80s toy/cartoon franchise right (with the first being ‘Transformers,’ of course). The box office has been decent, but fan reaction has been middling at best, with everyone in the world giving both films a big ‘ol shrug. But Paramount is not giving up on this potential gold mine yet! It seems that they have some pretty wacky plans to make ‘G.I. Joe 3’ into a must-see experience, including two familiar villains and a crossover with the characters from ‘M.A.S.K.’
We currently live in a world where society has stopped blinking incredulously at the mere idea of major film franchises based on the dumb toys you used to play with back in the ‘80s. So, it’s not too surprising that Hasbro is apparently examining the possibility of a big screen ‘GoBots’ revival.
Honda has decided to take a hint from the film and television industry this holiday season by taking advantage of your nostalgia. The company's new ads feature some of your old pals, like Jem, G.I. Joe, Strawberry Shortcake, Stretch Armstrong, and Skeletor—OK, maybe Skeletor wasn't one of your childhood “friends.” It depends on what kind of kid you were.
If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of...
Talk of a 'Community' movie may well prove enough to sustain the cult NBC comedy through a sixth, and presumably final season, but for the moment, the Greendale gang will tackle their most ambitious outing yet with a 'G.I. Joe' animated installment that reimagines Jeff, Britta, Abed, Annie, Shirley and more as the realest of American heroes. Watch "Buzzkill" Britta and "Fourth Wall" Abed even deliver a G.I. Joe'-style PSA in the first clip from April return "G.I. Jeff!"
This past week we saw 'Community' returning to its Dungeons & Dragons roots with latest concept episode "Advanced Advanced Dungeons & Dragons," but its next gimmick will prove far more ambitious. See the cast of 'Community' done up in the animated stylings of 'G.I. Joe,' including "Tight Ship" Annie and "Buzzkill" Britta in the first photos from upcoming installment "G.I. Jeff"!
FOX may be bringing M. Night Shyamalan to TV for forthcoming event series 'Wayward Pines,' but do they have what it takes to tackle Steven Spielberg? That's what the network aims to find out in developing a new drama said to be in the vein of Spielberg's 2002 Leonardo DiCaprio / Tom Hanks counterfeit drama 'Catch Me if You Can,' adding a hacktivist spin from the 'G.I. Joe' writers.
Today's cosplay comes from an amazing group of cosplayers who love 'G.I. Joe' and charity, and they use some pretty interesting locations to stage their photo shoots.
