WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A lone and mysterious fighter, known only as “Snake Eyes” (Golding), is recruited into an ancient Japanese ninja clan called the Arashikage, after saving the life of its heir apparent Tommy (Koji). However, when secrets from his past are suddenly revealed, Snake Eyes’ loyalties are tested – even if it means losing those closest to him…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The world might not have been clamouring for an origin tale for the popular G.I. Joe hero, but any chance to give the charismatic rising star Henry Golding a shot at a lead role in a major action film might just be worth the greenlight alone.
