Something BIG has arrived on the internet and has to be seen to be believed! Kong the Eighth Wonder of the World is reprising his role as the famous titular monster. Move over Godzilla, this is the true King of the Monsters!
Kong: Skull Island is the latest installment for one of the most popular movie monsters of all time. The film appears to primarily take place on Skull Island, an island that features different beasts including dinosaurs, large insects, and other creatures. The first trailer gave us a great tease to the largest Kong yet! Now we get to see him up close and personal and he doesn’t look pleased to see these explorers on his home turf. Feast your eyes on the second official trailer for Kong: Skull Island down below!
Entertainment Weekly has brought us our latest look at Kong, but this trailer ultimately gives us the full reveal we have all wanted. This Kong is certainly the biggest one yet! The humans are clearly at a disadvantage. It’ll take more than a few guns and helicopters to take this giant ape out!
Not only does this trailer give us a few good shots of Kong, but the film also appears to pay tribute to the original 1933 film as well as the Peter Jackson’s remake. The jungle, dinosaurs, and other various creatures are all crucial to the Kong lore. After all, a film with Kong fighting only humans would be a tad boring.
It’s also reassuring that we won’t be having a Gareth Edwards Godzilla type of issue, in that we’ll be seeing the monster early on in the film and won’t have to wait very long for any action to take place. As soon as the humans arrive at Skull Island, it’s game on! Here was what director Jordan Vogt-Roberts
“We’re also fundamentally not playing the same game that Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla did and most monster movies do, which I’m sort of sick of the notion that a monster movie needs to wait an hour or 40 minutes until the creature shows up. Kong traditionally does not show up in these movies until very, very late, and the monster traditionally does not show up until very, very late in a monster movie, so a lot of these movies tend to have this structure that’s a bit of a slow burn. Something about this movie made me want to reject that and play a very, very different game.” -Jordan Vogt-Roberts
This trailer surely puts that notion of barely seeing the monster to rest. We can expect plenty of action in this film and I simply cannot wait to see what Vogt-Roberts has in store for us!
