If you’re like me then July 23rd can’t get here fast enough as Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins will finally make its long awaited debut in cinemas.
Paramount Pictures and Hasbro have officially released new character posters featuring the movie’s cast of heroes and villains. Peek at the first image of Iko Uwais as The Hard Master and the rest of the crew below in all their motion poster glory!
I know that a lot of fans are already crying foul with this interpretation because Snake-Eyes is supposed to be unseen and mysterious but as a longtime fan speaking, I’m ok with changing things if it’s done well. I’m a fanboy, yes, but I’m a fanboy that can accept change if the material is handled with respect and the fan base that made this character isn’t ignored. My only argument in the past is that with Golding playing the lead, we might not get as much masked Snake as we would like. Only time will tell on that front but not having Golding in full Snake-Eyes garb for a majority of the film might be the deal breaker in my eyes.
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.
July 23rd is the date and only in theaters, so get ready for some Arashakage style blood letting as the swords are gonna fly in this one! Bring on the extended trailer!!!
