Words can’t really express how excited this writer is to see Kong: Skull Island. When it was first announced that we’d be revisiting Skull Island yet again in a film entitled Kong: Skull Island, it was hard to really care. At the time, it had only been about a decade since Peter Jackson had revisited the great ape’s homeland, and we weren’t in a hurry to revisit it. Kickstarted by the momentum of the 2014 Godzilla film, this movie seemed like little more than a ploy to eventually join the character up with the giant lizard.
In short, we weren’t really convinced they were going to do anything unique with the film. It would simply act as an obligatory retread of the material we already know in order to get him to meet up with Godzilla. Oh, boy were we wrong. Last year, at San Diego Comic-Con, we were shown the first footage from the film…and man did it impress. With its wonderful hybrid between action-adventure and good old-fashioned Hollywood charm, it won us over.
We’re not big believers in this film, and it’s with that mindset that we went into this most recent trailer. As expected, it brought the action to the forefront right away, with Kong ripping the helicopters to pieces. Things only got crazier from there and…well, just check out the reaction video above and see what I thought.
The synopsis for Kong: Skull Island is below:
“When a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakens titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monsters and man. Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman and John C. Reilly star in a thrilling and original new adventure that reveals the untold story of how Kong became King."
