The GI Joe spin-off film, Snake Eyes, has launched another action-packed trailer: you can see it right here.
Paramount has launched another trailer for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, the continuation of its G.I. Joe action franchise. As one of the most popular characters in the GI Joe franchise, Snake Eyes, the masked and mute ninja, is the lead character as the movie looks set to explore his past in Japan.
This trailer takes it up a notch from the previous one though. If you were one of those kids who, whilst smashing your toys of rival ninjas, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow together in furious combat, ever wondered just how they became such bitter foes, you’ll be happy.
Henry Golding plays the title character, replacing Ray Park who portrayed Snake Eyes in the two G.I. Joe films thus far. Andrew Koji plays Storm Shadow, his nemesis, and the film looks set to explore the genesis of that famed rivalry. Whilst it may well ultimately be just another G.I. Joe film, the bitter backstory between the two characters was always one of the more interesting aspects of G.I. Joe (as feuding ninjas tend to be). Hopefully, this will give the film an extra dimension.
The film, which shot in Vancouver and Japan throughout 2019 and 2020, is reportedly already getting a follow-up, with Paramount seemingly keen to continue leveraging the franchise. The film arrives in the US on July 23rd, and we get it in the UK on August 20th.
You can check out the trailer below, plus there’s a featurette with the actors discussing the characters’ rivalry too.
We’ll leave you with the synopsis for the film.
Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teach Snake Eyes the ways of the ninja warrior while also providing something he’s been longing for: a home. But when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honour and allegiance will be tested – even if it means losing the trust of those closest to him.
