We just now scored an action-packed look at Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island, which drops an unfortunate John C. Reilly and Tom Hiddleston in the middle of a fight between the King and a dinosaur of sorts. I like that the humans are on the run from the creature, and hope there’s a lot more set pieces that allow the actors to interact with the monsters (something that didn’t happen once – not once – in Godzilla).
Scripted by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy, and Derek Connolly, and directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the film stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, and Eugene Cordero.
In KONG: SKULL ISLAND, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific – as beautiful as it is treacherous – unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
Skull Island opens in theaters on March 10th, 2017, followed by Godzilla 2, which is being directed by Michael Dougherty, on March 22, 2019, and Godzilla vs. Kong on May 29, 2020.
