Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are getting geared up to take you deep into the mysterious land of Skull Island and the final trailer for ‘Kong: Skull Island’ reminds you that you are definitely not welcomed in the jungle.
With Kong set to battle Godzilla in 2020, it’s not a surprise this Kong is bigger and badder than earlier renditions. Legendary has stated that the story of ‘Kong: Skull Island’ will remain true to the Kaiju’s lore, but this film will exist in an entirely new timeline.
Here’s the trailer courtesy of Tom Hiddleston:

A trip back to the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes, the Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures release tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
I’m loving the humor and ‘Apocalypse Now’ war-like feel in the footages the studio has been releasing. Of course, that’s what marketing does. It teases you enough to want to see the film, but will it live up to the hype or are the clips released the best part of the film?
We’ll know soon enough when ‘Kong: Skull Island’ is released next month. By the way, make sure you stay until the end of the credits as rumor has it, there will be a nice nod there for Hayao Miyazaki fans!
‘Kong: Skull Island’ stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson John Goodman, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary and John C. Reilly and will be in theaters on March 10.
