Are you ready for the shocking, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing first look at Snake Eyes, the new G.I. Joe spin-off? Don’t answer lightly. Stop right now and think about it. Think about how prepared you are to witness the awesome might of our first real glimpse of Henry Golding as the ninja assassin. I don’t want to oversell things, but I must warn you: If you have yet to steady yourself for this Snake Eyes first look, your hair might turn white and your skin might rot off your face like the bad guy who drinks from the wrong grail at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. You’ve been warned.
Yes, that’s it. I know – it’s not much. It’s just a stylish, black and white pic of Henry Golding walking up some steps. He doesn’t even appear to be in full costume. But hey, we’ll take what we can get.
Snake Eyes stars Golding Crazy Rich Asians as the ninja character, leading a cast that includes Andrew Koji Warrior as Storm Shadow, Iko Uwais The Raid as Hard Master, Samara Weaving Ready or Not as Scarlett, Úrsula Corberó Money Heist as Baroness, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Takehiro Hira as Kenta and Steven Allerick The Expanse as Snake Eyes’s father, Dad Eyes not his real name. Robert Schwentke directs a script from Evan Spiliotopoulos.
This won’t be the first live-action appearance of Snake Eyes. The character appeared in both G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, where he was played by stuntman-actor Ray Park. He also had a major role in Brian De Palam’s Snake Eyes, starring Nicolas Cage as a more realistic interpretation of the character.
Snake Eyes opens October 23, 2020.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said Thursday that its 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony set for June in Pasadena has been canceled.
“Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June,” NATAS chairman Terry O'Reilly said today. “As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
The move comes after NATAS announced it would postpone its annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards and its Sports Emmy Awards due to the coronavirus outbreak. That was Friday; so much has changed since then in the U.S. and around the world as the pandemic has grown.
Daytime Emmy Awards executive director Brent Stanton said that as far as moving forward with the annual awards, “Judging continues, and we look forward to announcing our incredibly talented nominees later this spring. We are working on some interesting alternative ideas for how to best recognize the honorees later this year and will share more details in the weeks ahead.”
NATAS was in the midst of some revamps of the Daytime Emmys. The upcoming ceremony was to be divided into three separate shows June 12-14 at the Pasadena Convention Center, much like the Primetime Emmys and the two-night Creative Arts Emmys. Three new categories were added - Outstanding Young Adult Program, Outstanding Picture Editing for an Animated Program, and Outstanding Special Effects Costumes, Makeup and Hairstyling - and the Younger Actor and Younger Actress in a Drama Series categories have been combined into a singular non-gendered Younger Performer in a Drama Series.
“These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities' guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”
