With about two weeks to go we get our final trailer for KONG: SKULL ISLAND. The monsters of the island take center stage in this action packed preview and there is a lot more of them that call the island home than just the big ape we knew they were going to find. Giant Spiders, Skull Crawlers(trademark John C. Reilly’s character), and even freaking Pterodactyls!
Kong welcomes TOM HIDDLESTON and company to the island and isn’t the best of hosts. He makes sure that no one is getting off the island the same they came by swatting their helicopters like flies in what looks to be just one of many intense action sequences in this monster flick.
Make no mistake that even with all these other creatures on the island there is only one King and Kong makes sure to remind all of them from time to time by throwing down with the ones who try and oppose him. The Skull crawlers seem to have a short memory and Kong improvises and uses a tree to refresh it for them. March 10th can’t come fast enough!
KONG: SKULL ISLAND is a forthcoming Legendary Pictures production, currently in post-production and preparing for a March 2017 release. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, from a script by Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly, John Gatins and Dan Gilroy, it is a period film, set in the 1970s, as a 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 are crossing into the domain of the mythical giant gorilla known as Kong. Starring TOM HIDDLESTON, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, TOBY KEBBELL and John C. Reilly, this film sees the creation of a shared universe with Legendary stablemate GODZILLA in a future production. The film is slated for a European release on the 9th March 2017, hitting UK and US shores the day after.
