International Trailer: “Snake Eyes”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Following the domestic trailer on Monday, Paramount Pictures has released an international trailer for its “G.I. Joe” spin-off/semi-reboot “Snake Eyes” which hits cinemas on July 23rd.

A completely different preview to the other two so far, the clip does the best job of the lot in explaining the story’s main beats and setup.

Henry Golding stars in this origin story of the skilled assassin before he became mute and always wore a helmet. 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 it means losing the trust of those closest to him.

The film also stars Andrew Koji as rival Storm Shadow, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, and Ursula Corbero as classic Cobra villain The Baroness.
