It’s kind of amazing what the marketing folks over at Legendary Pictures have been able to do over the course of the past year. I’m someone who could not have cared any less about the prospect of Kong: Skull Island. Even when they announced the impending mammoth crossover with Godzilla, my interest was only moderately above the “meh” level. However, when San Diego Comic-Con hit last year, and we got our first real taste of the movie, I was intrigued.
In a world full of superheroes and explosions, there has certainly been a lack of more traditional, jungle-laden, high adventure films. Jurassic World was the last one I can remember hitting theaters, but since then, they’ve been largely absent from Hollywood releases. So when I saw what this new movie would have to offer (which included a gargantuan version of King Kong himself), I found myself all the more intrigued.
And when the first official trailer hit? Forget about it. I was in.
Now, we’re only a couple short months away from the movie’s release, and as such, we were due for another full trailer. In advance of that, however, it looks like we’re first getting a spankin’ new international trailer for Kong: Skull Island, which features a boatload of new footage.
Check it out below!
I wish I could tell you just what all the text throughout this cut says, but alas, my Japanese ain’t so hot. Luckily, we don’t really need to speak the language to get the gist of what was going on in this trailer. Plus, with the film on the horizon, I imagine a full domestic trailer is no more than a couple weeks away, at most.
What did you think of the new international trailer? Did any of the new shots pique your interest? Let us know your thoughts down below!
