Release Date: August 7
Oddly enough, no one in the film is named Joe (it's a generic term for soldiers since the '40s). Instead, lead fighter Duke (Tatum), team captain Hawk (Quaid), and a ninja named Snake Eyes (Ray Park) take on villains like the beautiful and treacherous Baroness (Miller) and the mysterious Cobra Commander (Gordon-Levitt), who wears a mask through much of the movie. ''You know, the grand tradition of acting it all comes from masks,'' Gordon-Levitt says. ''And this may be the only chance I'll get to do that kind of acting.'' Meanwhile, Marlon Wayans' Ripcord fills another, equally classic role. ''I'm comic relief,'' he says. ''I'm a Joe who can chop you in the throat while acing my delivery of a knock-knock joke.''
