Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures have now released the new Kong: Skull Island trailer, which features our first good look at this new incarnation of the Eighth Wonder of the World.
A trip back to the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes, the new film will follow a team of explorers who venture deep inside the treacherous, primordial island to find the leader’s brother and a mythical serum, confronting extraordinary creatures along the way.
Tom Hiddleson will lead the group in the film, joined by Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham and Toby Kebbell.
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Kong: Skull Island is scripted by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. Legendary’s John Jashni and Thomas Tull are producing alongside Mary Parent. Legendary has promised that the story will honor the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but will place Skull Island in an entirely new, distinct timeline.
Kong: Skull Island is set to open on March 10, 2017.
