Henry Golding in Full Trailer for 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' Movie
"If you survive, you will gain access to our knowledge, and our power." Wow!! Paramount has debuted the second official trailer for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins – a new G.I. Joe spin-off movie focusing on the badass character of Snake Eyes. And it kicks some serious ass! Every warrior has a beginning. After the pandemic shut downs, this was reset for release in 2022, but Paramount decided to move it up and drop it in theaters this summer for an action-packed big screen treat. Henry Golding stars as Snake Eyes, replacing Ray Park who portrayed him in the previous films. He is trained in Japan was a ninja warrior by Arashikage, but his "honor and allegiance will be tested" in this movie. The cast includes Samara Weaving as Scarlett, with Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Peter Mensah, and Iko Uwais as Hard Master. This is one hell of a trailer. Very gritty, intense start then it gets into the flashy G.I. Joe stuff at the end. And damn - I'm totally sold on this. Can't wait to watch! Bring it on.
