Movies: "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (2009), "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (2013)
Upcoming movies: A third film is rumored, but unconfirmed.
Why: "G.I. Joe" has been around in one form or another for nearly fifty years, so the brand itself isn't going away anytime soon, but it may not be meant for live-action cinema. When the 2009 film disappointed, this year's delayed semi-reboot was ordered up, and the results weren't much better. Even the addition of Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson couldn't distinguish it from all the other action movies being crammed into theaters this year.
