A full trailer for the new Snake Eyes movie dropped this morning, showcasing thrilling action and a compelling origin story that stars Henry Golding as the mysterious commando of the G.I. Joes. The highly anticipated Paramount film marks the beginning of Snake Eyes’ journey. He is one of the most popular members of the G.I. Joe team. In the late 2000s film series, Ray Park played the character in the 2009 live-action film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and its sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation in 2013. Snake Eyes first appeared in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero issue No. 1 (June 1982) from Marvel Comics.
Fans and viewers will watch Golding play a tough honorable character being welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan and taught the way of the ninja warrior. A shadow organization called Cobra Command soon threatens the clan and the entire world, and Snake Eyes becomes a key figure in combatting and toppling Cobra’s influence and power.
Robert Schwentke is the director of the film and Evan Spiliotopoulous, Anna Waterhouse, and Joe Shrapnel hail as writers. Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins arrives exclusively in theaters on July 23. Watch the full trailer below!
