Paramount announces Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD
Like most boys in my generation we grew up in the awesomeness of G.I. Joe. In 2009 the American Fighting Force hit the big screen in live action with G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The success of that film brought a retooled sequel with the 2013 film G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Now they are shining the spotlight on one the most popular characters with Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins featuring Henry Golding in the title role. The film also stars Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as The Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta and Iko Uwais as Hard Master with RED director Robert Schwentke at the helm.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins follows a tenacious loner who is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage after saving the life of their heir apparent. Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage teach Snake Eyes the ways of the ninja warrior while also providing something he’s been longing for: a home. But, when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honor and allegiance will be tested – even if that means losing the trust of those closest to him.
The film is available now on premium digital and On-demand with it heading to 4K, Blu-ray and DVD in October. In addition to the film the home release offers up bonus content including deleted scenes and featurettes that take you behind bringing the fan favorite ninja to the big screen.
