Swords Aplenty in the First Trailer for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins

Andrew Koji plays Tommy in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins from Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Skydance.

During the MTV Movie Awards, Paramount dropped the first teaser for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins packed with action.

If you missed it last night during the awards show, the first (all too brief) look at the G.I. Joe prequel/reboot: Snake Eyes.

As you would expect, it’s heavy on the action (which looks pretty damn great), but light on the story elements. Generally, this isn’t a bad thing, but as someone who isn’t as familiar with all the G.I. Joe lore, I was hoping to see a smidge more of the story. Regardless, this quick teaser is absolutely successful in making me want more.

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.

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins hits theaters on July 23, 2021.
