Kong: Skull Island

"Monsters exist." It's time! Warner Bros has unleashed the first Comic-Con trailer for the new King Kong movie, Kong: Skull Island, and it's looks totally awesome. Jordan Vogt-Roberts directs this adventure to Kong Island, telling the origin story of King Kong, where they encounter the giant ape and try to take him out with machine guns. Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson star along with a huge cast including Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Wigham, Toby Kebbell and Eugene Cordero. This trailer doesn't fully reveal King Kong yet, but there are some stunning shots. And it kind of feels like Vogt-Roberts made the Apocalypse Now of Kong movies. Which is a good thing as far as I can tell. I really can't wait to see it! Enjoy.

Here's the first full trailer (+ poster) for Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island, direct from YouTube:

Kong: Skull Island Poster

A trip back to the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes, the new film will reportedly follow a team of explorers (led by a character played by Tom Hiddleston), who venture deep inside the treacherous, primordial island to find the leader's brother along with a mythical serum, confronting extraordinary creatures along the way. Kong: Skull Island is directed by American filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts, of the films The Kings of Summer and Nick Offerman: American Ham previously, as well as plenty of TV work before those. The screenplay has credits for Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly, John Gatins and Dan Gilroy. Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros will release Kong: Skull Island in theaters everywhere starting March 10th, 2017 early next year. Are you ready for an adventure on Skull Island?

    Kong looks more like the 1933 version. I'm okay with that though. The rest of it looks incredible.

      ...I actually kind of like Jackson's scarred version. After all, if one spends one's own life fighting f*cking dinosaurs all the damn time, of course one's face would have giant, f*cking scars on it. That's just called the "circle of life", baby.

    Looking pretty good so far.
  • DAVIDPD
    Kong so big.

    Wow, good trailer. I like this kind of stuff...the whole Kong thing. I like the actress and Hiddleston, who is in just about everything now. Which is a good thing of him...I guess. It also had very good photography and I wonder if they shot it on film. I couldn't find out over on imdb. They only negative for me is I wish it didn't have Jackson in it. I'm so tired of him and have to work to shake off my feelings of having to watch him do his schtick once again. My burden, but yes, I'm interested in this one for sure. We'll see.
  • King Kong is one of those monsters that I don't really care about, but this trailer is so good.
  • shiboleth
    I was not interested in this but that looks good. Which kinda worries me ...

    I was disappointed with the first Kong. Too much excessive Peter Jackson, too much Andy Serkis and just well, too much of everything. I do have to make a nod to the soundtrack though. The track Central Park is a beautiful piece. Anyway, this trailer does look very good, more than enough to get me into a cinema seat. Hopefully they can keep the Sam Jackson shouting to a minimum!

      That movie was certainly too much. But Kong v T. rex x3 is one of my favourite scenes. It was well cast I felt, too.
      • Payne by name
        I struggled with that scene. Visually impressive but I felt that the t-rex's were no more at fault than Kong. What I mean was that I wasn't rooting for Kong over the evil t-rex's as it was just a fight between wild animals and Kong was just as single minded as they were.
        • Snev De la Fontaine
          What about Kong trying to keep Ann from dying and the T-rexes trying to eat her? Single-minded or no, that doesn't seem like a bad reason to root for him.
          • Payne by name
            They weren't trying to eat her out of spite. Just an animal thing that Kong would have done if he hadn't taken a shine to her.
          • Snev De la Fontaine
            I get that point (though I'd say taking a shine would make him slightly less single-minded), but I was thinking about you saying you weren't rooting for Kong and I took it as an indicator the scene lost a lot of its tension and import because of it. It is in that sense that I replied that rooting for the survival of Ann would be enough to root for Kong. For me, at least.
          • Payne by name
            That probably was it. And the death of the final t-rex was pretty horrific, even for a big nasty monster.
    • Peter Jackson's King Kong was 3 hours too long.
      • RAW_D
        Plus I saw that ending coming from MILES away....
  • toonfed
    Looks like apepocalypse now
  • Ape-O-Calypse Now! and I want it now. Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson and King Kong in one movie ? This is X-mas.
  • Szkari
    Samuel L. Mothe@#$%^ Jackson!
  • Damn. Caught me off guard. Looks intriguing thus far.
  • VAharleywitch
    At first, despite reading the casting, I was very *yawn* This trailer did its job: I am now interested in seeing this movie. Love most of the headliners, and I'm curious what modern CGI + practical comes up with. And it's a refreshing take on why humans are on Kong's island.
  • RAW_D
    This looks interesting...but...I'm having trouble placing the timeline...is this post Vietnam? Pre? And is John Goodman Jack Blacks older self?....
    • This is probably post Vietnam. is John Goodman an older version of Jack Black? I don't think so. He's maybe some passionate zoologist.
  • Mark Brackney
    "Set in an alternate timeline where Kong was never captured in the 1930's, and thus continued to grow until he was about the right size to kick the ass of another giant reptile we all know, and love." In other words, a gigantic (no pun, intended) middle finger to Peter Jackson, as a whole. Yeah, sounds about right, to me.
