Monster movies: Do they get any bigger than KING KONG? Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures ares preparing for an update to the classic creature with KONG: SKULL ISLAND. And they’re going large. He is now a huge beast of a monster, preparing for his inevitable team-up/battle in the announced Godzilla in KING KONG VS GODZILLA (2020) creature feature. In what could have easily been a cheesy, groan-worthy rush to get in on the “shared universe” game, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have crafted something that, instead, shows a great deal of promise.
This trailer effn ROCKS!
The cast is phenomenal featuring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly. Who knew adding John C. Reilly to a King Kong flick would make it awesome. But, it does. Hah! And Kong himself looks fantastic and monstrous. In addition, the trailer features a slew of other creatures to marvel at including creepy crawlers called “skull crawlers”, a giant spider and a moss-cover ox. The feature is directred by Jordan Vogt-Rober

Gah! I dunno. Here’s to KONG: SKULL ISLAND coming our way March 10, 2017 and his future cage match with Godzilla in 2020.
