Kong: Skull Island reboots the classic story once again. While I never got round to watching Peter Jackson’s King Kong (I have an aversion to overlong movies, sometimes, and that one’s over three hours in both its regular and extended forms), I hope this one don’t go on too long.
And now a new trailer is out, showing a number of action clips to The Animals‘ We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, which is very apt.
The film takes a trip back to the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes, following a team of explorers, led by Captain James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston), who venture deep inside the treacherous, primordial island to find the leaders brother and a mythical serum, confronting extraordinary creatures along the way. From the look of the below King Kong set photos, the production appears to be on the right track as far as monsters go.
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, from a script by Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly, John Gatins and Dan Gilroy, the film also stars Samuel L Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Jing Tian, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham and Toby Kebbell.
Kong: Skull Island has been brought forward a day to March 9th.
