Kong Fights a Skull Crawler in Bone-Crunching Skull Island Clip

17 February 2017 2:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just a few weeks left until the March 10 release of Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros. has unleashed an action-packed new clip, which shows King Kong springing into action against one of the vicious Skull Crawlers. If that wasn't enough, we also have an IMAX featurette, where we hear from stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Jason Mitchell. The video also features Samuel L. Jackson, who compares his character Preston Packard to Ahab from Moby Dick, with King Kong serving as his "white whale." Brie Larson adds how happy she is that they have the "biggest King Kong of them all," which has been teased by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts in the past.

Warner Bros. debuted this clip earlier today, with Fandango premiering the IMAX featurette, which includes plenty of new footage of some of the other creatures on Skull Island. While Kong is certainly king on this island, there are »

It’s Monster Vs. Monster In This Awesome New Clip For Kong: Skull Island

17 February 2017 7:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

King Kong is not to be trifled with. As Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ blockbuster reboot inches closer and closer to its March 10th release, Legendary has spent the past few weeks drumming up excitement with a steady stream of teasers, eye-popping promos and nail-biting clips featuring some nervy exchanges between the human cast of Kong: Skull Island.

But if Samuel L. Jackson’s Lieutenant Colonel Packard and John Goodman’s mysterious Monarch operative Bill Randa took center stage earlier this week, Legendary has now summoned Kong himself to lock horns with one of the island’s many Skull Crawlers. The latter species will no doubt be categorized as another Muto (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Object) when Kong: Skull Island lights up the silver screen, but the real question is whether those Skull Crawlers have any relation to Godzilla, the real king of monsters.

Skull Island is a prequel, remember – just don’t refer »

New Clip Teases Kong: Skull Island’s Godzilla Connection

15 February 2017 3:48 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We didn’t know it at the time, but 2014’s Godzilla reboot was the first step on the road to getting a battle between two classic movie monsters with Godzilla vs. Kong set for release in 2020. Before we get to that though, we have to meet the new King Kong with Kong: Skull Island, and a new clip has come our, courtesy of Yahoo!, that sheds some light on the Godzilla connection with John Goodman’s Bill Randa name dropping Monarch, the secret organisation that was tracking the King of Monsters in the Gareth Edwards’ reboot. He goes on to mention Muto’s, a classification given to gigantic monsters that wreck shop on a regular basis, firmly placing this in the same universe as Godzilla, and setting the stage for more monster sized mayhem, with 2019’s Godzilla: King of Monsters and the highly anticipated meeting of these two titanic beasts. »

Kong: Skull Island Clip Brings Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Reboot Closer In Line With Godzilla

15 February 2017 2:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“You are going to tell me everything I don’t know, or I’m gunna’ blow your head off.” That’s Samuel L. Jackson’s Lieutenant Colonel Packard, who can be seen holding Bill Randa (John Goodman) at gunpoint, demanding answers, in the tense new clip for Kong: Skull Island.

It’s a nail-biting standoff that has reared its head throughout the film’s appropriately monstrous marketing campaign, though up above we get the chance to see Goodman’s Bill Randa in a whole new light. As early rumors had suggested, Randa is an employee of Monarch, the mysterious organization first introduced in Gareth EdwardsGodzilla three years ago. That means Goodman’s character is well versed in both Skull Island’s extraordinary food chain and MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Objects), effectively strengthening the film’s ties to Legendary’s overarching MonsterVerse. What’s more, based on Jackson’s no-nonsense tone, »

Samuel L. Jackson Learns Monsters Exist In A Clip From Kong: Skull Island; Plus End Credits Scene Confirmed

15 February 2017 12:43 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While Godzilla may have hit theaters just around three years ago, it's Kong: Skull Island that will actually launch Legendary's MonsterVerse as its story takes place over forty years before the main events of the previous film.  The first clip has arrived, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, and it teases a tense confrontation between Samuel L. Jackson's character Lieutenant Colonel Packard and John Goodman's character Bill Randa, who works for an organization known as Monarch - as in the same organization that attempted to kill Godzilla with a nuclear bomb in 1954. That's not the only major reveal as he also name-drops M.U.T.O. (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) and lets Jackson know that it's up to his agency to find these creatures before they can reclaim the Earth for themselves. On another note, we've received confirmation of a post-credits tag and according to Splash Report editor-in-chief Kellvin Chavez, »

Kong: Skull Island Has a Post-Credit Scene, Will We See Godzilla?

15 February 2017 11:13 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just a few weeks left until Kong: Skull Island hits theaters, Warner Bros. has already started to screen the film for critics. While it still may be quite some time before the first reviews arrive, we do have confirmation that there will be a post-credit scene attached to Kong: Skull Island, although no specific details about that scene have been revealed. All that was said is that King Kong fans will certainly not want to miss this scene when Kong: Skull Island hits theaters. There is already speculation that this scene may tie into Godzilla vs. Kong, but that hasn't been confirmed.

This news comes from Splash Report editor-in-chief Kellvin Chavez, who revealed on Twitter last night that there is an "awesome" post-credit scene in Kong: Skull Island. Unfortunately, he wouldn't divulge any specifics about this scene, or how long the scene in question will be. Here's what Kellvin »
