The first trailer for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins debuted Sunday night (Monday morning, Malaysian time) during the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Starring Henry Golding and Samara Weaving, the G.I. Joe spinoff is set for a theatrical release on July 23.

Golding plays the titular character, a ninja commando who wields a deadly katana blade, wears all-black, hides his face behind a mask and doesn't speak. Though don't worry – the film, which explores the origins of the mysterious Snake Eyes, allows Golding to talk.

Weaving plays Scarlett, an original member of the G.I. Joe team with whom Snake Eyes has a special relationship.

"I wanted to see something different, and I wanted it to look different, to feel different," Golding said. "To be able to launch a franchise like that, it was just too good to be true – and especially with a character like Snake Eyes about whom a lot of people don't know too much. They know him as this insane operator that completes missions and is an absolute weapon, but who's the guy behind the mask and what's his story?"

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura told Entertainment Weekly that Snake Eyes will answer some key questions about the character, based on the Hasbro toy of the same name. Fans will learn Snake Eyes' real name, who he is and where he came from.

Snake Eyes is directed by Robert Schwentke and written by Evan Spiliotopoulos. – Reuters
