The Final Trailer for SNAKE EYES: GI JOE ORIGINS Rocks the Martial Arts Mayhem! (Update: Bathroom Beatdown Clip Debuts!)
By: John M Jerva
(Original Post) Ahead of its big debut this Friday, Paramount Pictures has unlocked a third and final trailer for Snake Eyes GI Joe Origins which rocks the martial arts heavy action. Stars Henry Golding and Andrew Koji bring the iconic characters of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow respectively into a new era and the set pieces look adrenaline soaked rad. Check out the newest footage and key art to psyche yourself up for the big premiere this Friday!
The latest trailer features more of the bromance between Snake and Storm Shadow after Golding’s iconic ninja commando saves the latter’s life and we even get to see a hint of Storm Shadow enlisting for the dreaded Cobra Organization.
I’ve heard the negativity surrounding this film and the changes that were made to the mythology of the characters and I’m still on board. After all, if creator Larry Hama is on board and even suggested that the changes were necessary, then I think we can give it a shot. The footage has looked amazing so far and the cast is in top form especially our two leads. The choreography from Kenji Tanigaki (the Rurouni Kenshin franchise) is hyperkinetic and it looks absolutely thrilling. As a life long Joe fanatic and even more Snake Eyes freak, I’m reserving my judgement until I view it but it’s looking good from my end thus far.
Be sure to check out the Comic Con@Home panel this Wednesday at 1:00 pm Pacific as the cast and creator Larry Hama will be involved in a special Q&A.
