Paramount Pictures is looking to give its upcoming movie, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins Days, a final marketing boost before it is set to premiere this Friday.

The upcoming film is essentially a reboot of the G.I. Joe film franchise and will tell the story of Snake Eyes, the mysterious and literally silent ninja commando

He will be portrayed by Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as the film explores Snake Eyes' journey to learn how to become a ninja warrior from the ancient Arashikage clan.

The 105-second trailer contains just the right amount of ninja-specific action as opposed to focusing on how the film relates to the G.I. Joe franchise.

It remains unknown if Paramount has plans for future installments after the premiere of Snake Eyes.

The first two movies were mild successes at a time when people went to theaters just because they could.

It stands to reason that Snake Eyes probably won't do as well as the previous G.I. Joe outings given the current situation, but who knows?

A relatively slim competition with a bankable lead character could work well towards Snake Eyes' favor.
