I’m technically on vacation and my phone died this week so I’ve been out of the loop but as I’m on my wife’s phone, I saw that Entertainment Weekly has just dropped some fresh images for Snake-Eyes: GI Joe Origins has officially debuted courtesy of the entertainment news outlet. The pics feature multiple ones of star Henry Golding along with Andrew Koji who is playing Snake’s adoptive brother Storm Shadow as well as the other cast members. Check out the images in the gallery below along with the official synopsis!
In the article at EW, Golding talked about wearing the iconic outfit as well as wearing the mask and showing his face. The filmmakers promise to show off Snake in all his glory but there will be ample opportunity to see Golding as well.
The creators of the film, hoping for a franchise, have said that they have figured out a way for it to work so we shall see. As a longtime fan of the GI Joe and of the character, I’ll be the judge of that. We shall see.
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura also talked about how Cobra and the Joes will be a second character to those of the Arashikage Clan as this film is a build up to the much larger world of GI JOE.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is helmed by Robert Schwentke (The Captain, RED) from a script penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos. The film also stars a sensational international cast that includes Iko Uwais (Headshot) as Hard Master, Andrew Koji (Warrior, Peaky Blinders) as Strom Shadow, Peter Mensah (Jason X, 300) as Blind Master, Takehiro Hira (Lost Girls and Love Hotels) as Kenta, Haruka Abe (Kiss Me First, Cruella) as Akiko, Steven Allerick (The Expanse, Extant) as Father, Samuel Finzi (The Captain) as Augustine, and Simon Chin (Killing Eve, Outcast) as Hama.
There’s no denying that I’ve been waiting forever to see the film and with the promise that the action set pieces will be off the hook, here’s hoping they do the characters justice.
Snake-Eyes: GI Joe Origins is slated to finally hit theaters on July 23rd and expect the trailer to hit tomorrow during the MTV MOVIE AWARDS! You’ll see it here soon after! Check out the motion poster of Golding in full Snake-Eyes glory below!
