It's only a matter of days until the Eighth Wonder of the World returns to the big screen. The cinematic icon King Kong will make his first film appearance in 12 years when #KongSkullIsland is released on March 10, 2017. To say that anticipation is high for the monumental return would be a major understatement. And speaking of monumental, Warner Bros. have released a final trailer in anticipation for the release.
Check out the final Kong: Skull Island trailer below:
Now if that doesn't make your jaw drop, I don't know what will. I know we have already seen quite a lot of the film's clips, but Warner Bros. has done a great job of bringing all that together in one final super trailer that highlights the best of what we have already seen and a bunch of brand-new — but equally as amazing — footage. Let's take a look at the best of what the new trailer reveals.
There Are Plenty Of Ways To Die On Skull Island
The trailer begins with #TomHiddleston telling us about all the ways they could die on Skull Island and, well, he's not wrong. From previous trailers, we knew that a lot of deadly monsters want to eat the invaders alive, but here we discover some interesting new information about them — particularly the spider-like creature, which can seemingly throw its innards down around around its victim, before hoisting them up to chomp on.
#SamuelLJackson, however, is going to have no problem delivering a profanity-ridden monologue to the spider as he unloads on it with some heavy firepower.
But as we have already established — King Kong is the king of the island, and he isn't a big fan of helicopters and spends the first half of the trailer demolishing every one of them in sight.

Skull Crawlers Are Everywhere
We already knew #SkullIsland was crawling with monsters of every kind, but here we find out just how much of a presence the dreaded Skull Crawlers are. While not appearing in the first half of the trailer, they make up for it in the second and it's hard to spot a collection of clips in which they don't feature.
The trailer also alludes to just how ferocious the Skull Crawlers are, including when one of the monstrous creatures is about feast on another gigantic specimen that looks eerily reminiscent of that giant water buffalo.
But while Skull Crawlers would very much like to claim the island and its inhabitants for themselves, there is one bigger and scarier monster that wouldn't take too kindly to that — Kong himself. And that shows here, as the giant beast wrestles two of the reptilian creatures — much like when the character battled multiple V-Rexes in Peter Jackson's 2005 King Kong — in order to prove who Skull Island's king really is. After seeing that Skull Crawler's face getting bashed in with a branch, I don't like their chances.
Beauty Could Charm The Beast
We have wondered before about what kind of role #BrieLarson's character would play in the film. Mason Weaver may indeed be a war photojournalist and a peace activist, but she also happens to be the only female character on the island — and Kong's history with females is well-documented, suggesting that he might fall for her.
The final trailer seems to support this theory as despite his anger toward the invasive humans on the island — he seems rather gentle with her, especially when he fishes her out of the water. Moreover, it seems that Kong is willing to protect Weaver from peril as he fends off attacking Skull Crawlers. This bond between the beauty and the beast could be the salvation that the human characters need to escape Skull Island with their lives.
With more deadly creatures, monstrous battles and badass kings, Kong: Skull Island is set to be one of this year's biggest hits. And if this trailer is anything to go by, we are in for one hell of a treat.
Kong: Skull Island hits theaters on March 10, 2017.
