The video, as seen above, sees Golding’s Mason having a tense conversation with Noomi Rapace’s fellow assassin, Falk, in which she taunts his epic final contract and the dangers of their profession. She also reveals her leverage against him in having kidnapped his girlfriend, Daniela Melchior’s Sophie, putting him in a race against time.

Initially getting his start on screen with Malaysian productions and the BBC’s The Travel Show, Golding garnered worldwide recognition for his turn in the 2018 adaptations of the rom-com Crazy Rich Asians and crime thriller A Simple Favor.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently confirmed a new G.I. Joe movie is being actively developed, so it will be interesting to see if Golding will get another chance at Snake Eyes and continue making a name for himself in the action genre.
