Did you know the G.I. Joe team has been around for six centuries? That’s what this new Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins international trailer seems to be suggesting, at least.

Since Murder on the Orient Express was already taken, we get the punny title referencing both a high speed train and the ammunition that will undoubtedly be splattering blood on that very train. In fact, you can see some of that blood being spilled in one of several Bullet Train first look photos revealed by David Leitch himself. Read More »

Joe spin-off Snake Eyes starring Crazy Rich Asians leading man Henry Golding as the titular ninja commando. Read More »
