"Is that a monkey?" No, man. You have no idea. A new trailer for "Kong: Skull Island" was just released, starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly. The story is set on an island in the South Pacific in the middle of the Vietnam War, with a team of explorers sent to "the place where myth and science meet" to drop bombs and map the surface of the island.
But the island is already inhabited, and not just by the "magnificent" King Kong. Kong is praised by John C. Reilly's character (who lives on the island?) as a "pretty good king" who mostly keeps to himself; "Kong's god on the island, but the devils live below us." It seems to make Kong the hero with the skull-crawlers as the bad guys. Of course, some of the humans are destined to be bad guys, too.
Watch the trailer:
Here's the Warner Bros. synopsis:
"Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' 'Kong: Skull Island' reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts ('The Kings of Summer'). In the film, 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."
"Kong: Skull Island" opens March 10, 2017.
