Actor Henry Golding revealed our first look at Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins trailer at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The same trailer is out now on the internet.
Official synopsis: 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.
Directed by Robert Schwentke (The Captain, RED) to a story by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast, The Nutty Professor), the movie features Henry Golding (Crazy Rish Asians) as Snake Eyes, Andrew Koji (Warrior) as Storm Shadow, Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) as Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó (Money Heist) as The Baroness, Peter Mensah (Spartacus) as Blind Master, Iko Uwais (Wu Assassins) as Hard Master, Haruka Abe (Slingers) as Akiko, Takehiro Hira (Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai) as Kenta, and Eri Ishida (Ultraman) as Obake Obaasan. Music by Martin Todsharow (Desert Flower, The Captain), Cinematography by Bojan Bazelli (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Pete’s Dragon), with Fight Choreography by Kenji Tanigaki (Rurôni Kenshin, The Monkey King: Havoc in Heaven’s Palace).
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will hit theaters including IMAX and Dolby Cinema, on July 23rd, 2021.
Official social media accounts for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins has posted a motion poster for the movie and the trailer release date for the same.
As we expected, the trailer will drop on Sunday, 16th May during MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The motion poster also features music from A$AP Ferg’s hit single ‘New Level’. It is clear that this song may be included with the trailer on Sunday.

Entertainment Weekly has officially revealed our first look at Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins.
These new images feature Henry Golding as Snake Eyes, Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó as Baroness, and Haruka Abe as Akiko.
“I wanted to see something different, and I wanted it to look different, to feel different,” Golding says. “To be able to launch a franchise like that, it was just too good to be true — and especially with a character like Snake Eyes about whom a lot of people don’t know too much. They know him as this insane operator that completes missions and is an absolute weapon, but who’s the guy behind the mask and what’s his story?”
Bonaventura says Snake Eyes will “answer some questions” left lingering in the minds of G.I. Joe fans after all these years. Like, what is Snake’s real name? Such details were once considered “classified” in the canon of the series. “You’ll learn who he is, where he came from,” the producer promises.
“Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, their brotherhood/relationship is one of the most famous in the G.I. Joe lore,” Golding says. “They have such an interesting, forever-wavering relationship of hate and love. They love each other as brothers because they’ve been through the same thing.” After saving the Arashikage’s heir apparent, Snake is taken to Japan “to train” and “really bring out the true essence of who he is,” the actor adds.
The producers and Paramount toyed with multiple directions to keep the Joes going on the big screen, including a potential Retaliation sequel. Bonaventura says that could still be a reality one day as “there have been some scripts that are in development currently.”
Another idea was to center a film around The Baroness, a popular villainess and the lieutenant of Cobra Commander, head of the international villainous organization. She is now played in Snake Eyes by actress Úrsula Corberó. “We never developed it, but we did debate,” Bonaventura says. “She’s such a deliciously evil character.” Evan Spiliotopoulos’ script for a Snake origins movie just came along at the right time. (Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel developed the screenplay with Spiliotopoulos.)
“Both Cobra and G.I. Joe take a back seat to the internal drama of the Arashikage and the character,” Bonaventura continues. “They are absolutely an element, but it’s looking at it this way: You meet somebody, watch their struggle, the struggle leads to the world of G.I. Joe and Cobra. It does not start as a G.I. Joe-Cobra movie. It starts as an Arashikage movie, a Snake Eyes character arc. You come to realize the Arashikage as they’ve traditionally been are affiliated with the Joes, therefore that brings in Cobra. There is a gradual reveal that there’s a larger world here.”
“Having this solo movie, we get to set the precedent for where [Snake’s] story leads,” Golding adds. “It’s phenomenal that Paramount and Hasbro chose to go right to the beginning and really start off with such a story. It gives so much more creative control over where this universe is going. I’m crazy excited to see what we do next.”

Official G.I. Joe Movie Twitter Account has tweeted out that actor Henry Golding will present at this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Paramount usually considers MTV Movie & TVAwards as an avenue to reveal trailers for upcoming movies. This is especially true if a prominent character from an upcoming movie is at the awards to conduct presenting.
Since Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is approximately 2 months away from the time of the award show in question, we will likely see some sort of promotion during MTV Movie & TV Awards 2021.
However, we’ve been through duds before and we advise our members to approach this news with a cautiously optimistic feeling.
MTV Movie & TV Awards 2021 will go live on Sunday, May 16th from the Palladium in Los Angeles at 9 pm. ET.
