It’s only been 11 years since Peter Jackson’s King Kong. You remember that one, right? Featured dinosaurs, icky bugs, and starred Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, Billy Elliott, and Coach Taylor? No?
Well, that’s okay: Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has found a fresh new take for the ape with Kong: Skull Island. Over the summer, we saw the film’s menacing teaser, and now Legendary has unlocked its trailer.
Without getting too hyperbolic, this son of a bitch looks goddamn spectacular, and we’re starting to see how they were able to assemble such an A-list cast, despite being such a tired property.
In case you forgot, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Toby Kebbell, Tom Wilkinson, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly all star.
Watch the big lug above and re-watch Gareth Edwards’ 2014 reboot of Godzilla in anticipation. If you recall, the two monsters will eventually come face to face in Godzilla vs. Kong. Specifically, May 29th, 2020.
