The movie is quickly approaching launch, so it’s attention-grabbing that Paramount is just simply now unleashing character posters. Additionally, there’s but to be a full size trailer for the movie, but it surely’s seemingly there can be one quickly.
Snake Eyes would be the first live-action G.I. Joe movie since G.I. Joe: Retaliation in 2013, however the films won’t be part of the identical universe. Rather, Snake Eyes will strictly observe characters and storylines centered across the titular hero, though sequels and spinoffs are all the time doable. Although no official affirmation has been on condition that Snake Eyes doesn’t happen within the earlier G.I. Joe movie continuity, the truth that totally different actors are portraying the identical characters is a reasonably important indication. There have been rumors that Paramount Pictures is already planning on producing sequels for the movie, however they may seemingly wait to see how Snake Eyes performs earlier than committing.
Live motion G.I. Joe diversifications haven’t precisely seen quite a lot of success both critically or financially. The first movie, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, noticed minimal returns on the field workplace whereas being slammed by critics. Its sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation fared a bit higher on the field workplace, but additionally did not win the hearts of followers and critics alike. Hopefully, Snake Eyes can keep away from the identical destiny and ship a contemporary take for a franchise that has not succeeded within the live-action adaptation division. Although it’s exhausting to ship a basic movie based mostly on motion figures, the Transformers franchise has confirmed that it’s doable. Perhaps Snake Eyes might be the movie that G.I. Joe wants.
