The next wave of fantastic 80s toys/cartoons to hit theaters comes up next week with G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. Some liberties are obviously going to be taken – like giving them all crazy “accelerator suits” instead of having them just be kickass military guys – but it looks like the action is non-stop. Sienna Miller stars as the gorgeous vixen known as The Baroness, and although she’s not using the vague Eastern European accent that made her character sexy, she’s making up for that with the distinct advantage of not being a cartoon. Check out these clips to see her, Snake-Eyes, Duke and Storm Shadow in a high-octane fight to save Paris from ultimate destruction.

What’s the deal with those weird space-suits the Joe team is running around in? Find out here.
