Paramount Pictures decided this weekend to honor us with the first shots of their upcoming film Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, starring Henry Golding and Samara Weaving.
In the G.I. Joe spin-off movie, Golding is in the title role of a ninja commando who deals with a deadly katana, wears only black, hides his face behind a mask and doesn’t speak. But this film is his background story that reveals to us how he became Snake Eyes.
The official description introduces us to the details of the action:
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins has Henry Golding as Snake Eyes, a powerful loner who is welcomed into the ancient Japanese Arashikage clan after saving the life of their successor. Upon arriving in Japan, Arashikage teaches Snake Eyes the skills of a ninja warrior while at the same time giving him what he has always wanted: home. But when secrets from his past are revealed, his honor and loyalty will be put to the test – even if it means losing the trust of those closest to him.
The film is directed by Robert Schwentke and written by Evan Spilotopoulos. Along with Golding and Weaving, the film also stars Andrew Koji, Úrsula Corberó, Haruka Abe, Tahehiro Hira and Iko Uwais.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins should arrive in cinemas this summer, on July 23.
