G.I. Joe and the Transformers: Summer 2009

Ah, two of the classics from my childhood are coming to the big screen this summer, and I can hardly wait!

First up, Michael Bay is back in the director's seat for the gigantic Transformers sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. No word yet on the plot, we're just promised that it's going to be huge, gigantic, epic, and just bigger than the first.

Here's the teaser poster that went online today. The first trailer is expected at the end of the month, along with the SuperBowl.

Notice how it looks vaguely like the Decepticon logo from the eyes up? Nice touch.

And, coming in August, we have the live-action movie version of G.I. Joe. This one comes to us from Stephen Sommers.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra will detail the origins of America's daring, highly-trained special missions force, and the terrorist organization that is its arch-enemy.

The official website was launched yesterday. There's nothing there yet but the logo. Again, we're expecting the first trailer at the end of the month with the SuperBowl. Although, there have been scattered reports that the trailer has already been shown in some markets and that it's...not very good.

We'll know for sure come the SuperBowl!
