Snake Eyes (Golding) saves the heir to an ancient Japanese clan who fights for peace in the clip released on Monday.
The act results in Snake Eyes being trained by the clan, giving him a home for the first time. The training consists of undertaking the grueling three challenges of the warrior.
Snake Eyes also learns of the villainous Cobra organization and their mission to take over the world. The iconic G.I. Joe character later dons his signature ninja outfit and fights foes on a motorcycle.
Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, from director Robert Schwentke, is coming to theaters on July 23.
Co-stars include Andrew Koji as Storm Shadow, Úrsula Corberó as Baroness, Samara Weaving as Scarlett, Haruka Abe as Akiko, Tahehiro Hira as Kenta and Iko Uwais as Hard Master.
