With barely ten days left until its arrival in theaters in Spain, Paramount has canceled the premiere of Snake Eyes: el Origen, the film from the GI Joe universe, which represented the leap of the Spanish actress Úrsula Corberó to Hollwwood and the great Paramount premiere for this summer.
The company, which confirmed to SensaCine the cancellation of the premiere, however did not explain the reasons, although an official statement has not been made.
Snake Eyes: El origenstarring Henry Golding was the third universe film based on GI toys Joe exploring the origin of the most popular of the characters, the mute ninja Snake Eyes. Directed by Robert Schwentke, it is, as its title suggests, the character’s origin story before losing the ability to speak due to a helicopter accident that terribly damaged his vocal cords.
The film, which premiered two weekends ago in the US, did not meet box office expectations for a budget production, as it came in second, after Weather de M. Night Shyamalan, with $ 13 million in tickets sold, less than expected for a production that cost more than 88 million, according to Variety.
The film was scheduled to premiere on August 13 and it seems that the cancellation has been a last minute decision since yesterday, on Paramount’s own social networks a post about its premiere was published. This, added to the multiple interviews and publicity campaign of its protagonists, Henry Golding and Úrsula Corberó, makes one think that it has been a last minute change.
Although the GI Joe story has already been brought to the big screen, Snake Eyes: El origen It came without any connection to the previous movies about the characters. In 2009 it was released G.I. Joe and in 2013 GI Joe: Revenge, but the film starring Golding it was a new beginning. A blank page that allowed a great creative journey.
