Henry Golding’s First Snake Eyes Toys Unboxed as GI Joe Spinoff is getting a new release date
Actor Henry Golding has revealed the first toys from the coming Snake-eyes Movie. The GI Joe spin-off is slated to hit theaters this summer as Paramount recently postponed the release date. To celebrate, Golding unpacked the action figure depicting his character as part of the Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest.
The Hasbro GI Joe team revealed several products inspired by the upcoming movie during the event. A number of new Snake Eyes action figures as well as the Snake Eyes Special Missions Mask and the electronic sword Ninja Strike Morning Light were presented during a panel. In addition, fans got their first glimpse of the new GI Joe Classified Series action figures inspired by the movie. Henry Golding in the unboxing video is happy to see his character. “Holy Moly! That’s my face! It even has the beard,” says Golding excitedly.
While Paramount hasn’t released any photos or trailers for the film yet, this unboxing gave us a glimpse of what to expect. We took a look at the new suit that impressed Henry Golding in the video. The toy also revealed the character’s new sword, which Golding assures will be explained in the film.
“This is Snake Eyes’ new sword, Morning Light, and the story behind it is told in the film.”
Robert Schwentke (RIPD) sits in the director’s chair with a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast). When Paramount shuffled its release calendar, it announced that the film will now hit theaters on July 23, earlier than expected. The cast also includes Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais as Hard Master, Ursula Corbero as Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett and Steven Allerick as Ninja Commando. Haruka Abe and Takehiro Hira, whose roles are not yet known, complete the ensemble.
Previously, two live-action films were produced by GI Joe. 2009 GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra has done modestly behind a cast led by Channing Tatum, grossing $ 302 million worldwide. Although the production budget of $ 175 million didn’t help. GI Joe: Retaliation in 2013 that brought Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to his knees fared better at $ 375 million on a smaller budget. Anyway, the franchise has been dormant since then.
That’s not all that was revealed at the event. The Hasbro Transformers team also introduced new characters for the Transformers: Generations War for Cybertron: Kingdom line. However, the biggest reveal in this universe was the Robosen-born Transformers Optimus Prime Auto-Converting Programmable Advanced Robot. On the Power Rangers side, Hasbro unveiled new Metallic Ranger figures from the Lightning Collection and the Tyrannosaurus Sentry from the Lightning Collection. They also featured the Power Rangers Dino Fury Gold Ranger as well as a quick look at Episode 7 and one from Episode 8 of the series.
