The first trailer for Kong: Skull Island debuted at Comic-Con back in July, offering a sneak peek that was more visually exciting and intriguing than we could have possibly hoped, clearly evoking classic war films like Apocalypse Now and The Thin Red Line — you know, but with a giant ape. After a week of teasers and images preparing us for Kong’s revival, a new official trailer has arrived online heralding the return of the legendary movie monster.
As promised by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Kong has received a bit of a size upgrade in Skull Island, which takes the iconic monster back to his home island — a stunning and dangerous landscape filled with various beasts, where the King of the monsters is the least of your worries. Starring Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman and Toby Kebbell, the new film centers on a group of explorers who head into uncharted territory and unwittingly cross paths with the massive Kong.
The new trailer features more humor and character moments, including a few great ones with John C. Reilly, who appears to have been on the island with its natives and monsters for quite some time…
In addition to the latest trailer, Legendary has released two great new posters for Kong: Skull Island:
The film also stars John C. Reilly, Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Jing Tian and John Ortiz. Kong: Skull Island hits theaters on March 10, 2017.
