G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Paramount2008
Japanese Garden
Directed by Stephen Sommers, G.I. Joe filmed in the Japanese Garden for two days, two weeks apart, during the spring of 2008, under the pseudonym “Dark Sky”. All the scenes were flashbacks, depicting the turbulent relationship of the young Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. For the one scene staged inside the Japanese House, all the usual items—even the tatami mats—were removed and placed into storage, to be temporarily replaced with movie set dressing.
