New ‘Kong Skull Island’ trailer teases more creatures, spiders and action

A new adventure for King Kong is coming soon and new trailer teases the action in Kong: Skull Island and reveals a better look at all of the other dangers in the film. Check out the Asian trailer below.

Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is bringing the massive ape to the big screen with Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell.

This footage shows an endless array of giant creatures, creepy spiders, gargantuan lizards and much more.

Check out the full synopsis below.

Vogt-Roberts revealed the plot he pitched and the angle set up in the new film.

“The script I first read took place in 1917. But when I started talking to the Legendary [Entertainment] guys, I was thinking, ‘What weird King Kong movie would I want to see?’ So I pitched them the Vietnam War connection, literally thinking they were gonna laugh me out of the room. And to Legendary’s credit, they said, ‘Cool. Let’s figure it out.’ The aesthetics of that time mixed with King Kong makes for an incredible genre mash-up.”

Kong: Skull Island arrives in theaters on March 10, 2017

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” stars Tom Hiddleston (“The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World”), Samuel L. Jackson (“The Hateful Eight,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Oscar winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Trainwreck”), John Goodman (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Argo”) and John C. Reilly (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Step Brothers”).  The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing (“Police Story: Lockdown”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), John Ortiz (“Steve Jobs”), Thomas Mann (“Beautiful Creatures”), Shea Whigham (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Toby Kebbell (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) and Eugene Cordero (“The Kings of Summer”).

Vogt-Roberts is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy and Derek Connolly.  “Kong: Skull Island” is produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni with Mary Parent.  The executive producers are Eric McLeod and Alex Garcia.
