Following the previous trailer for that revealed very little, a brand new promo for Kong: Skull Island has arrived as its jam-packed with the good stuff. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), Skull Island is dripping with influences from the original 1933 movie, the glimpses we’ve seen of Kong himself has suggested the design for the legendary character is something of a love letter to the Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack production.
The new Kong aims to bring back the sense of adventure that was perhaps lacking in Peter Jackson’s attempt, while I have a lot of love for Jackson’s movie (once they are on the island), it simply takes too long to get going. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Tian Jing, Thomas Mann, and John Ortiz, Kong: Skull Island hits cinemas in March.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (“The Kings of Summer”).
In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific – as beautiful as it is treacherous – unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
“Kong: Skull Island” stars Tom Hiddleston (“The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World”), Samuel L. Jackson (“The Hateful Eight,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Oscar winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Trainwreck”), John Goodman (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Argo”) and John C. Reilly (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Step Brothers”). The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing (“Police Story: Lockdown”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), John Ortiz (“Steve Jobs”), Thomas Mann (“Beautiful Creatures”), Shea Whigham (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Toby Kebbell (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) and Eugene Cordero (“The Kings of Summer”).
