Never mind if you did not ask for a G.I. Joe origins story because, it is here anyways. Unless you are a faithful fan of G.I. Joe, you wouldn’t have seen a Snake Eyes movie coming.
Folks, this is Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, the the new G.I. Joe movie. I am not a biggest fan of big screen Joe movies, but it is nice to see the franchise is still alive nevertheless.
As the movie title suggests, the new Joe movie is all about Snake Eyes, the killing machine of team good guys in the G.I. Joe franchise.
“Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins stars Henry Golding as Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner who is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage after saving the life of their heir apparent. 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’ honor and allegiance will be tested – even if that means losing the trust of those closest to him. Based on the iconic G.I. Joe character, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins also stars Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta and Iko Uwais as Hard Master.”
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will arrive at theaters on July 23. Meanwhile, keep going for the new trailer (well, more like teaser trailer).
