Mankind might rule the earth, but they’re about to meet their match in the brand new trailer for Kong: Skull Island.
Here’s the synopsis:
In the mid-1970s a team of adventurers, scientists, and military personnel led by former SAS officer James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) set out to investigate an uncharted island in the Pacific. But what they find is a mythical landscape overrun by powerful beasts, and lorded over by a gigantic gorilla known only as Kong.
The new trailer for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’s monster film promises an epic action-adventure experience for audiences. Not only do we have Kong, but there’s also plenty of new monsters to send audiences cowering in fright. And did we mention the firepower? Mankind might not be the dominant species on this island but they’ve sure got some pretty big guns to do some damage!
Vogt-Robert’s has also assembled an awesome cast for this enormous feature, lead by British thespian Tom Hiddleston. Hiddleston has been showing off his muscles lately, and the British star throws himself head first into this monster fight as man-of-action Captain James Conrad. He is joined by a terrific supporting cast including Academy Award winner Brie Larson, as a photojournalist named Weaver, John Goodman as mysterious scientist Bill Randa, and Samuel L. Jackson as Lt. Col. Packard, a no-nonsense Vietnam vet who isn’t prepared to let his men die in another hellhole for no reason. In a stunning revelation, John C. Reilly also shows up and completely steals the trailer as an over-the-top survivor who has clearly been on this island too long.
Audiences will undoubtedly be entertained by Kong: Skull Island, and the CGI work used to realise Kong himself. While Peter Jackson’s attention to this mythical character can never be undone, Vogt-Roberts and his team appear to have crafted a far more agile, dominant Kong, who presides over his island as alpha protector and will eliminate anything that threatens to destroy his realm.
Kong: Skull Island will be released March 9, 2017 in New Zealand and Australia and on March 10, 2017 in the US and UK.
