For the summer of 2009, Paramount is making a movie based on another Hasbro toy franchise- a little title called "G.I. Joe." Now, I have to say I actually had no interest in seeing this- the director Stephen Sommers hasn't exactly had a career making movies of substance (wait, but then again neither has Michael Bay). Needless to say, these first two publicity stills from the movie have sparked a definite geek interest. Snake-Eyes was definitely the most badass character on the show:
He's being played by Ray Park (the awesome british martial artist that also played Darth Maul in the Star Wars movies). How do you think he compares to the original?:
