Paramount Pictures is banking on Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins to re-spark the dwindling embers of its G.I. Joe film franchise. One thing the new film has going for it, according to star Henry Golding, is that it is not just another a cookie cutter entry into the ever-growing genre of superhero cinema. In a new interview, he instead describes this solo film as “much more of a martial arts film” and explains why he “fucking hated” the first week of production. Read More »
There has been an endless amount of shuffling of movie release dates this year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. One of the bigger movies that was originally intended to arrive this fall was Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins from Paramount Pictures. The action adventure movie based on the Hasbro toyline would have hit theaters in October, but the studio chose to remove it from the 2020 release calendar altogether. Now Paramount has set the movie for release in 2021, and they’ve also given release dates to new installments of the Scream and Paranormal Activity franchises and more Read More »
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins would have brought the Hasbro toy franchise back to the big screen this year for the first time in over six years. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has forced Paramount Pictures to delay the movie from its fall release this year to an unknown date sometime in 2021. But that hasn’t stopped the film’s star, Crazy Rich Asians actor Henry Golding, from seeing an early cut of the movie, and he says that fans are “in for something insane.” Read More »

Just when you thought the G.I. Joe franchise was dead, Paramount Pictures is back with a brand new movie based on the Hasbro toy franchise. But instead of continuing the series that started with G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the studio is heading in a new direction with an origin story for one of the most popular characters in the action figure line-up.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins kicked off production in Japan today with a special event overseas that revealed the film’s official logo and had some of the cast and crew partake in a special blessing ceremony at the Hie-Jinja Shrine in Tokyo, a historical Shinto site that has been around over 500 years. This ninja movie is real, and it’s on the way. Read More »
Hey, remember Snake Eyes? No, not the Nicolas Cage movie. The G.I. Joe character who never takes his mask off and rarely speaks? I’d totally forgotten about this, but Paramount is giving that character his own spin-off film, with Crazy Rich Asians and Last Christmas star Henry Golding playing the lead role. Well, today the Snake Eyes movie cast recruited one more actor: Steven Allerick (The Expanse) has been hired to play Snake Eyes’ father. Get hyped, people – we’re about to see Big Daddy Snake Eyes in the flesh! Read More »

Weaving joins a cast that already includes Henry Golding, Haruka Abe, Ursula Corbero, Iko Uwais, and Andrew Koji. Robert Schwentke is set to direct a script from Evan Spiliotopoulos.

The upcoming Snake Eyes movie is starting to sound less like a prequel following that silent masked ninja and more like a total reboot of the G.I. Joe movie franchise. After all, how else are they going to explain the inclusion of Baroness, the longtime villain who appeared in a previous film played by a completely different person? In any case, it looks like Spanish actress Úrsula Corberó has landed the role, so if this movie is a hit, we can probably expect her to torment the good guys in the reinvigorated franchise to come.
