The first trailer for Snake eyes has been revealed. Following the popular G.I. Joe character in the days before he was masked and mute, the new film serves as an origin story with Henry Golding in the role. An official motion poster was shared by Golding on Friday, and at the time he also promised the premiere of the Snake eyes trailer at the MTV Movie and TV Awards. That time has come and the trailer has since come online. You can watch it below now.
Several sneak peek photos of Snake Eye were also released last week, providing an early look at the characters for the trailer. This included a look at Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, a member of the Arashikage ninja clan who trains with Snake Eyes. In the original G.I. Joe Lore, the characters train together before they eventually fall out and become enemies. Their love-hate relationship will be explored in the new movie.
“Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, their fraternity / relationship is one of the most famous in the G.I. Joe lore,” Golding told Entertainment Weekly. They have such an interesting, ever-faltering relationship of hate and love. They love each other like brothers because they’ve been through the same thing. ‘ After rescuing the Arashikage’s heir to the throne, Snake is brought to Japan “to train” and “really bring out the true essence of who he is.”
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura added, “Both Cobra and GI Joe take a backseat to the internal drama of the Arashikage and the character. They are definitely an element, but it looks at it this way: you meet someone, watch their struggles, the battle leads into the world of GI Joe and Cobra. It doesn’t start as a GI Joe-Cobra movie. It starts as an Arashikage movie, a Snake Eyes character arc. You realize that the Arashikage as they are traditionally connected with the Joes, so that brings Cobra in. There’s a gradual revelation that there’s a bigger world here. ”
The cast of Snake eyes also includes Haruka Abe as Akiko, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Iko Uwais as Hard Master and Peter Mensah as Blind Master. Robert Schwentke directs from a screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos. Stephen Davis, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Josh Feldman and Brian Goldner were producing.
Previously, Snake Eyes was played by Ray Park in the previous live action G.I. Joe movies: 2009’s The Rise of Cobra and 2013’s Retaliation. While Snake eyes takes the story back in time, it has also been reported G.I. Joe 3 is also in the works. Di Bonaventura said with Entertainment Weekly last week Snake eyes took precedence, other story ideas are in the works.
“There are currently some scripts in development,” said Bonaventura. “The truth is that if we had a good script, it could have gone first, but we had a hard time. While we had a hard time, a really good one came out. Snake eyes script.”
Snake eyes will hit theaters on July 23, 2021. It will also be available to stream on Paramount + 45 days after its release date in theaters. If the movie does as well as the studio expects, we can expect more from Henry Golding in the role. It was reported last year that there were already early plans for a sequel with di Bonaventura returning to produce. The official trailer comes from Paramount Pictures.
