Miss a day in the world of G.I. Joe these days and you miss a LOT.  Along with new figures, G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA director Stephen Sommers has launched and celebrated that launch by posting some awesome exclusive videos.

The gem here is the exclusive clip featuring some Snake Eyes acrobatics and general coolness, and it is amplified by a nice behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into the visual effects and everything that you DON’T see on the screen in front of you.  Embedding is disabled by request, but you can check out the videos below:

Thanks again to SNAKE EYES and TheLongestDay of for that info.

I am so stoked seeing that Snake Eyes clip…sure he comes across as more Spider-Man than military commando, but THAT is going to fire up a kid to go out and buy his toys and dress up like him for Halloween.  Love that.  I also love the fact that all of the clips we’ve seen so far are pulled from the battle through the streets of Paris.  This is only one of 4 or 5 elaborate action set pieces that make up the film, and it’s nice that they’re using it as a source material, and leaving so much else to be discovered in the theater.  I’ve read the script and read the novelization, and there are even bigger, better, and cooler things than what we’re seeing here.  August 7th can’t come soon enough!
