This Summer, the most popular sword wielding G.I. Joe, Snake Eyes, smashes in to theaters with his own movie. The film serves as an origin story and a soft reboot for the G.I.Joe Franchise.
This movie will tell the story of the iconic Snake Eyes character before he donned his helmet and went silent to the rest of the world. Henry Golding plays the titular hero, with Andrew Koji taking on his longtime rival and fellow classic Joe character, Storm Shadow.
Fans of the G.I. Joe franchise have been anxious to see what this new take does with the property, and Paramount offered a new glimpse at many of its characters on Thursday. The studio unveiled a series of motion posters, eight in all, each focusing on one of the characters. Check them out below:
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is directed by Robert Schwentke, with a screenplay written by Evan Spiliotopoulos, Joe Shrapnel, and Anna Waterhouse, from a story by Spiliotopoulos. Based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe toy, comic, and media franchise, the film is a reboot of the G.I. Joe film series and serves as an origin story for the title character Snake Eyes. Henry Golding stars as the character, replacing Ray Park who portrayed him in the previous films, while Andrew Koji, Úrsula Corberó, Samara Weaving, Haruka Abe, Takehiro Hira, and Iko Uwais also star.
A lone fighter is welcomed into and trained by an ancient Japanese ninja clan called the Arashikage, but finds his loyalties being tested when secrets from his past are revealed, as he eventually goes on the path to become the hero known as “Snake Eyes”.
Snake Eyes is scheduled for a theatrical release on July 23, 2021, by Paramount Pictures.
