In case you somehow missed the memo, Kong: Skull Island looks pretty insane. Even if were possible to go wrong with a movie in which Samuel L. Jackson leads a bunch of explorers on a suicide mission to an island populated by the largest-ever incarnation of the world's most famous ape, #KongSkullIsland does not look like it will suck. It looks, at the very least, as much fun as Snakes On A Plane.
A clutch of new TV spots that just hit the internet do even more than that incredible trailer to sell Kong as the must-see movie of Spring, all packing a bunch of new footage. Check out the first below.
Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) and Weaver (Brie Larson) seem to be quite taken by Kong, but Colonel Packard has his own ideas: "We're going to bring that ape down."
Kong may be a (misunderstood) monster, but I'm not sure who I'd put my money on if it comes down to monster vs. man and that man is Samuel L. Jackson. He looks pretty mad.
Three further TV spots (all in the one clip below) switch the focus to the rest of the cast. In the first, Bill Randa (John Goodman) fleshes out this Kong's mythology a little, explaining ominously that "The 1954 nuclear tests weren't tests — they were trying to kill something." Conrad, Weaver and the team then do battle with various monsters, all of whom look pretty damn hungry. Bets on who's dead first?
In the final TV spot, Weaver displays more intelligence than the various men around her with the realization that "we don't belong here." Too late now...
Everything about Skull Island looks like the perfect tonic to the over-serious, under-intelligent blockbusters of 2016. It hits theaters March 10.
Who'll survive as monsters face off with man in Kong: Skull Island?
