First “Snake Eyes” Trailer Teases Henry Golding as the Ninja Warrior
We’ve got our first look at director Robert Schwentke’s Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, revealing Henry Golding as the titular hero who will ultimately go on to become one of the original members of the G.I. Joe military unit. Snake Eyes has long been the most mysterious member of the G.I. Joe team, the masked warrior who is more comfortable fighting than revealing anything about himself. That looks like it’ll change in Schwentke’s film, of course—you don’t cast the star of Crazy Rich Asians if you’re going to hide him in a mask the whole time. Golding will be front and center and quite unmasked, as we find out how this “tenacious loner” became Snake Eyes.
Snake Eyes comes from a script by Evan Spilotopoulos, and also stars Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta, and Iko Uwais as Hard Master.
Snake Eyes is set to hit theaters on July 23. Check out the first trailer below:
Here’s the synopsis from Paramount:
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins stars Henry Golding as Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner who is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage after saving the life of their heir apparent. Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teach Snake Eyes the ways of the ninja warrior while also providing something he’s been longing for: a home. But, when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honor and allegiance will be tested – even if that means losing the trust of those closest to him. Based on the iconic G.I. Joe character, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins also stars Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta and Iko Uwais as Hard Master.
