Trailer - Kong: Skull Island
The trailer just keep-a-comin'. Now we've got our very first full trailer for 'Kong: Skull Island', and it looks quite promising!
I'm happy we didn't get a great look at Kong himself, that's what worked so well with 2014's Godzilla trailer, the less you show, the more people want to see what you're hiding. The trailer is cut very well; it's kind of a slow-burn with many cuts to fiery chaos of which we know not what caused it (yes we do). The trailer mostly shows actors reacting to something we cannot see and slowly building up tension until the final sort-of reveal.
I didn't realize until now just how many great actors are in this film, the cast is absolutely stacked. We've got some great veterans in the form of Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman, along with some of the best young actors around today: Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston. I'm excited to see this interpretation of King Kong and how it will eventually culminate in a throwdown with Godzilla himself a few years from now. 'Kong: Skull Island' will hit theaters on March 10th, 2017.
