Final ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Trailer is a Monster Beat Down

17 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Humans are definitely out of their element in the final Kong: Skull Island trailer where the King puts a beat down on a squad of helicopters like they're annoying swarming gnats on a hot summer afternoon.

It's a miracle that any of the humans visiting Skull island survive their initial contact with King Kong including a shady businessman (John Goodman), a former Sas operative-turned-animal tracker (Tom Hiddleston), a brave photojournalist (Brie Larson) and the military muscle (Samuel L. Jackson).

You'll notice there's little dialogue and much monster-on-monster and monster-on-human action in this trailer as Warner Bros. continues to push Kong: Skull Island as a summer blockbuster-come-early. Early reviews have been favorable including a must-see post-credits scene that opens up a much bigger monstrous world.

Just when you think there might be too much action along comes John C. Reilly as the marooned local loon with a humorous tongue and opposition »

Kong: Skull Island Final Trailer Reaction - This Looks Like A Journey Worth Taking!

18 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Words can’t really express how excited this writer is to see Kong: Skull Island. When it was first announced that we’d be revisiting Skull Island yet again in a film entitled Kong: Skull Island, it was hard to really care. At the time, it had only been about a decade since Peter Jackson had revisited the great ape’s homeland, and we weren’t in a hurry to revisit it. Kickstarted by the momentum of the 2014 Godzilla film, this movie seemed like little more than a ploy to eventually join the character up with the giant lizard.

In short, we weren’t really convinced they were going to do anything unique with the film. It would simply act as an obligatory retread of the material we already know in order to get him to meet up with Godzilla. Oh, boy were we wrong. Last year, at San Diego Comic-Con, »

Kong: Skull Island Trailer 3 Drops!

19 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I will admit, I was not onboard with Kong: Skull Island until I finally got around to watching the 1st trailer and Wow, was I impressed. This final trailer is amazing, and it shows us quite a few treats. The biggest treat of the entire film is the perfect cast. Check it out here:

First, John C. Reilly quite possibly one of the most versatile actors ever to be born. I think Days of Thunder is the first film I saw him in, where he plays a slightly comedic, yet mixed, role. Of course, we can skip over quite a bit of movies and go to Step Brothers, but if we do we miss some of his dramatic acting like in Gangs of New York, Magolia, and possibly even in Boogie Nights (debatable role there). We recently saw him in Guardians of the Galaxy, where he has a level of dry humor, »

19 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The final trailer for Kong: Skull Island gives a definitive glimpse of the legendarily massive ape. Kong punches helicopters and fights the evil "Skullcrawlers" that killed off his species. The movie comes out on March 10th. 

The film's star-studded cast includes Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman and John C. Reilly.

The final trailer for Kong Skull Island goes gloriously over the top

21 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The final trailer for the new King Kong film, Kong Skull Island, has arrived. If you were in any doubts as to the seismic intent of Jordan Vogt-Roberts film, this new tease clears things up nicely. This is a war movie, and one side is a huge, properly massive, monster.

Part of the ever-expanding shared universe along with Godzilla, whose next outing (entitled Kong of ((the)) Monsters) has been gathering a fine cast of late, as well as picking up a great director in Michael Dougherty. We know that Kong and Godzilla are destined to face off against one another in a few years time. Warners and Legendary will keep a close eye on box office returns for Skull Island, hopeful that audiences flock.

This new trailer is very different from the first,  and has a little more in common with the excellent monster-focused Japanese version.  If »

Reilly.  The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell and Eugene Cordero.  Vogt-Roberts directs the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy and Derek Connolly.  “Kong: Skull Island” is produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni with Mary Parent. »

Patriots Day movie review: blurry portrait of a city

21 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Unfocused like a 1970s cast-of-thousands disaster flick, and with little point beyond engaging in bland and easy propagandistic cheering. Boston deserves better. I’m “biast” (pro): have enjoyed Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg’s previous collaborations

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There are likely hundreds of amazing, moving stories to be told about the 2013 bombing at the finish line of Boston’s annual marathon… and dang if Patriots Day — named after the local holiday on which the bombing occurred — doesn’t seem to want to tell all of them all at once.

Patriots Day barely introduces us to one set of characters before jumping away to another.

Director and screenwriter (with Matt Cook and Joshua Zetumer) Peter Berg might have been more successful zooming in on star Mark Wahlberg’s composite cop character Tommy Saunders »

Kong: Skull Island Final Trailer Is Epic, Brutal and Full of Monsters

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It really isn't summer time yet, not by a long shot, but the blockbuster movie season is getting ready to kick off in just a couple of weeks. March is going to be loaded down with huge movies this year, but everyone is going to have to make room for the king, because Kong: Skull Island is coming. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have just unleashed an absolutely action-packed final trailer for the movie, which should be enough to get fans of monster movies very excited.

Warner Bros. dropped the brand new trailer online, which is easily the most jam-packed one we have seen so far. In addition to dropping the new trailer for Kong: Skull Island, the studio also uploaded a Vr video, which allows you to explore Skull Island in an entirely different way. You know, in case seeing a giant monstrous ape in 2D wasn't quite enough for you. »

It’s Monster Mayhem in Final Trailer for ‘Kong: Skull Island’

22 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Further proof that that the usual four-month summer window for studio’s biggest tentpoles is ever-expanding, this month will see the release of Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Ghost in the Shell, Power Rangers, Life, and more, but what looks to be the most bonkers of the line-up is Kong: Skull Island. Ahead of a release in just under two weeks,  the final trailer has now landed for Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ first studio film.

This last trailer (inspired by The Handmaiden, as one can see below) packs more comedy and action than the previous looks, particularly when it comes to our titular gorilla going head-to-head with the island’s other monsters — all in a vibrant palette of colors. Check out the final trailer below for the film starring Brie LarsonTom HiddlestonToby KebbellJohn Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Shea Whigam, and John C. Reilly.

The Beast Roars To Life In Final Trailer For Kong: Skull Island

22 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, this is kind of surprising.

Kong: Skull Island is only a few weeks away now, with its March 10th release date quickly approaching, and although we’ve already seen a ton of promotional material for it, Warner Bros. has now dropped one final trailer for the blockbuster, which goes for broke as it shows us just what a spectacle the film is set to be. Granted, it is odd to get a new preview so close to the movie hitting theaters, but given the footage on display here, we’re certainly not complaining.

Set to be the next step forward in the studio’s budding MonsterVerse, Skull Island will find a “team of explorers and soldiers travel to an uncharted island in the Pacific, unaware that they are crossing into the domain of monsters, including the mythic Kong.” With a cast headlined by Hollywood heavyweights like Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, »

‘Kong: Skull Island’ Trailer Drops Tomorrow; See Tease Now

26 February 2017 4:57 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

It looks like we're going to get one final Kong: Skull Island trailer starring Tom HiddlestonSamuel L. Jackson, John GoodmanBrie LarsonJing Tian, Toby KebbellJohn Ortiz, Corey Hawkins and John C. Reilly before the monstrous flick drops into theaters next month.

The official Kong: Skull Island social media accounts teased the new trailer today with less than 10 seconds worth of footage featuring King Kong taking on multiple charging Skullcrawler creatures. Needless to say it's going to take more than two or three Skullcrawlers to faze an enraged King.

Expect the final Kong: Skull Island trailer to arrive sometime during the first half of Monday.

Kong: Skull Island makes its theatrical debut on March 10th.

New Kong: Skull Island Trailer Drops Tomorrow, Teaser Previews the Action

26 February 2017 12:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been more than a decade since Peter Jackson unleashed his version of King Kong on moviegoers and while it is not generally considered to be a bad movie, it is a bit slow and definitely had some issues. Legendary Pictures is getting ready to reintroduce the legendary ape next month and this time around, it looks to be a pure, action-packed monster adventure. With the release of Kong: Skull Island less than a month away, a new trailer is set to be released tomorrow and we already have a little glimpse at what's to come.

The official Twitter account for Kong: Skull Island released a brief but loaded-with-monster-action tease for the upcoming trailer. It was also announced that a brand new and likely final trailer would be arriving online tomorrow. If this brief tease is any indication, we are in for a whole lot of King King duking it out with other beasts. »
