Warner Bros Pictures and Legendary Pictures debuted a new trailer for the action film Kong: Skull Island, described as a reimagining of the classic King Kong story. The Kings of Summer‘s Jordan Vogt-Roberts directs from a script by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy, and Derek Connolly. Tom Hiddleston leads the cast that includes Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, and John C Reilly. Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, and Eugene Cordero are also part of the ensemble cast. Warner Bros Pictures is targeting a March 10, 2017 theatrical release in 2D, 3D, and IMAX.
Filming took place on three continents over six months, with some locations never before used in a feature film. The production kicked off in October 2015 in Oahu and then moved to Australia before finishing up in Vietnam.
The Plot: 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.
