ENI Exclusive: Hasbro's G.I.Joe Rise Of Cobra Charity Premier

Reported by Jay Cochran - 11:49 PM 2009.08.03
Hasbro pulled out all the stops today in Warwick, RI where they kicked off an advance screening of the new G.I.Joe Rise of Cobra movie from Paramount Pictures with 100% of the ticket sales benefiting Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Bradley Hospital.

Besides serving food and drink to patrons before the movie began, Hasbro also held a red-carpet event featuring actress Rachel Nichols who plays Scarlett in the movie along with the film’s director Stephen Sommers and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Also on hand was Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner who also was a producer on this movie.

During tonight’s screening Goldner announced that they had raised 30k from this event. I also had a chance to ask Lorenzo di Bonaventura who was also a producer on the Transformers movies which one was easier to get on to the big screen. He said Transformers and when I asked why he stated that Transformers really showed how popular these classic 80’s brands could be with folks today and that it opened a lot of doors for such things like G.I.Joe.

Check out IMAGES BELOW from tonight and also click here to check out ENI’s own REVIEW of the movie. Also be sure to check back tomorrow as we will be posting video from tonight which will include interviews with Rachel Nichols and Brian Goldner.

Just got out. I'll have a full review up soon but just as my initial reaction is I actually overall liked the story but did feel at times some of the special effects were a bitover the top boardering on corny looking.
