Snake Eyes Baroness

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.

The Night Comes for Us Review

Iko Uwais kicked so much ass in the Indonesian action movie The Raid and the even more brutal sequel The Raid 2, and we’re wondering why no mainstream action movie has yet taken advantage of his incredible martial arts skills to their full potential. But hopefully that’s about the change, because the actor has landed a key role in the upcoming G.I. Joe spin-off Snake Eyes starring Crazy Rich Asians leading man Henry Golding as the titular ninja commando. Read More »

Hollywood refuses to give up on the idea of G.I. Joe movies, and rather than make another sequel, Paramount will attempt a spin-off. That spin-off is Snake Eyes, focused on the silent masked ninja commando – and it looks like Paramount has found its star.

Crazy Rich Asians actor Henry Golding is in talks to join the Snake Eyes movie, and since Golding is a star on the rise, you can safely assume Snake Eyes will probably take off his mask and talk in this movie. Which will likely upset the hardcore G.I. Joe fans out there.

G.I. Joe Snake Eyes Spin-Off

Over the weekend, producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura spoke to /Film about the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee. Since DiBonaventura is also the producer of Hasbro’s G.I. Joe franchise, we asked him about the upcoming Snake Eyes spin-off film.

Announced in May, the Snake Eyes movie found its director in Robert Schwentke just last week. Still in question was whether Ray Park, who portrayed Snake Eyes in both live-action G.I. Joe films, would reprise the role.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

My original title for this piece was ‘Kanye West Loves Enter the Void, But Not Enough to Credit It.’ Because the video for the Kanye West single ‘All of the Lights’ is dominated by strobing full-screen text missives that are pure imitations of the brilliant and assaultive credits sequence for Gaspar Noe‘s Enter the Void. But while the video sees fit to ape the credits to Gaspar Noe’s latest film right down to the fact of crediting some of the people involved in the video, it doesn’t actually shout out to the film or filmmaker that inspired it. Bad form, Kanye.

Then again, the video already has far more than two million views on YouTube, and perhaps it will bring a new and unsuspecting audience to Mr. Noe’s film. Check out the video and the credit sequence that inspired it, after the break.  Read More »
