‘Kong: Skull Island’ Trailer: We Gotta Get Out of This Place
Each new trailer for Kong: Skull Island offers a little more humor than the last, and in the final trailer for the King’s revival, it’s not just John C. Reilly who’s monkeying around. Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Corey Hawkins also get a few comedic beats in during the latest sneak peek, which is cleverly set to The Animals’ “We Gotta Get Out of This Place.” And there are plenty of good reasons to get the heck off of that island.
Warner Bros. has unleashed the final trailer for Kong: Skull Island, which also offers the longest preview yet for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ upcoming blockbuster. Packed with action, the latest trailer opens with Hiddleston listing off all the dangerous things that can (and will) threaten this ill-advised expedition to the eponymous island, and features plenty of new footage of Kong and the various gnarly beasts — like skull-crawlers (Reilly has a hilarious explanation for why he calls them that).
Set in the ’70s, Kong: Skull Island features an excellent ensemble, including John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, Jason Mitchell, Thomas Mann and Eugene Cordero, and is officially described as follows:
The year is 1973. Somewhere in our world, it is said that there exists a wondrous island unspoiled by man – a land shrouded in mystery, where myth runs wild. Uncharted and undiscovered. When the secretive organization known as Monarch identify this destination as the origin point for mysterious new superspecies, they mount an expedition to discover its secrets. What they find on Skull Island is an adventure beyond any human experience. An exotic paradise of wonders and terrors, where flora and fauna have fused together into an Eden of otherworldly jungle creatures.
As one group fights to escape and the other declares war on Kong, we discover that the mighty primate is at the center of a battle for dominion over the island, locked into a ‘survival of the fittest’ face-off with the terrifying apex predators responsible for wiping out his kin. Driven by vengeance, Kong will become nature’s fury, and fight to take his rightful place upon the throne of most powerful beast on the island, revealing the story of how Kong became King.
Kong: Skull Island hits theaters on March 10.
