Footage from the upcoming “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” was shown for ShoWest attendees at the final night banquet in connection with star Sienna Miller being honored with the award for Supporting Actress of the Year. Miller plays The Baroness in the upcoming summer release.

The clip showed a chase scene between The Baroness, Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee)  and Duke (Channing Tatum). Storm Shadow is carrying a rocket launcher and aims it at the Eiffel Tower. Before Duke can stop him, Storm Shadow launches the rocket straight toward the French landmark.

Meanwhile, The Baroness is seen running with a briefcase across a glass roof, with the Duke in pursuit. The rocket explodes against the Eiffel Tower and begins to disintegrate the metal. A quick cut back to The Baroness, who shoots her weapon across the glass roof to stop the Duke’s approach.

The glass shatters and Duke nearly falls through. Storm Shadow jumps through a glass window and seems to be falling to his death, but then catches onto something. The Baroness, having slowed Duke down, continues to run across the glass roof, finally jumping into an approaching helicopter which has come to transport her away.

Before it can pull away, however, Duke leaps from the building into the helicopter. He reaches toward a device The Baroness is wearing and appears to shut it off. The Baroness says something to the effect of “Congratulations, you’ve just saved Paris, or part of it at least.”
