King Kong is roaring back onto our screens in a big, bad way, and if this fantastic new trailer, courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live, for Kong: Skull Island is any indication, it’s gonna be a hell of a good time. There’s elements of humour, horror, and even a war drama present in this stylish new glimpse at the movie, and it seem director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) has brought them altogether in a way that will leave us with an endlessly entertaining blockbuster at the end of the day. While the cast is spectacular, with not one, not two, but three Marvel alums (Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, and new girl on the scene Brie Larson) and John C. Rielly bringing the comedy, this movie really belongs to the titular gigantic monkey, and the visual effects bringing Kong to life look spectacular. On top of all that, »

If Warner and Legendary’s appropriately monstrous marketing machine for Kong: Skull Island lay dormant since San Diego Comic-Con, over the past few days we’ve seen the movie explode into life, and fans have since poured over each and every frame of that all-too-brief sneak peek. Entertainment Weekly recently took us up close and personal with the 100ft behemoth thanks to a rather striking money shot, and now, we have the mother lode: Skull Island‘s all-new trailer.
Offering up our best look at Kong to date, the sizzle reel is a white-knuckle ride through and through, chronicling the journey of Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and their team of fellow explorers as they venture onto the primordial isle. It isn’t long before things go awry, at which point John Goodman’s mysterious Monarch operative warns that monsters are very, very real. Speaking of which, eagle-eyed viewers should be »

As we eagerly await the next trailer for Kong: Skull Island, which will bring King Kong back to the big screen (larger than ever before), today gives eager movie fans our first real look at the King's appearance. Come inside to check it out!
The first trailer for Kong: Skull Island arrived over the Summer, and was ridiculously impressive. Seriously, I couldn't stop watching it, and it remains one of my favorite trailers to come out of Sdcc this year. Even so, we didn't really get to see Kong in all his glory, leaving us only teasing glimpses that hint at his new, enormous, size. As we wait for a new trailer (which should be coming soon), Entertainment Weekly debuted a brand new image from the film, giving us our best look yet at the iconic monster:
I'm digging the look, and it's marked different from what we saw with »

A Tribute to King Kong takes place as part of the The St. Louis International Film Festival Sunday, Nov. 6 beginning at 6:00pm at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium. The first film screened will be the new documentary Long Live The King, which explores the enduring fascination with one of the biggest stars — both literally and figuratively — in Hollywood history: the mighty King Kong. Produced and directed by Frank Dietz and Trish Geiger, the creative team behind the award-winning “Beast Wishes,” the documentary devotes primary attention to the 1933 classic, celebrating the contributions of filmmakers Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, stars Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, and Bruce Cabot, writer Edgar Wallace, and especially stop-motion innovator Willis O’Brien. But Kong’s legacy is also fully detailed: the sequel “Son of Kong,” the cinematic kin “Mighty Joe Young,” the Dino DeLaurentis and Peter Jackson remakes, even the Japanese versions by Toho Studios. »

★★★☆☆Two subjects one would never expect to encounter in the same film; North Korea and cinephilia. They come together - bizarrely and fascinatingly - in Robert Cannan and Ross Adam's documentary The Lovers and the Despot. In 1978, celebrated South Korean actress Choi Eun-hee visited Hong-Kong to discuss what she believed to be the offer of a highly lucrative role. Instead, Choi was lured to a beach and kidnapped by North Korean agents, who whisked her off to North Korea under orders from then dear leader Kim Jong-il, one of her biggest fans.

Our series continues with a special installment that compares not just one but Two remakes to a classic original. This week, Cinelinx goes ape and looks at all three versions of King Kong.
King Kong was created in 1933 by Universal Pictures and was the prototype for the Kaiju genre, years before Godzilla ever stomped on Tokyo. The image of Kong atop the Empire State Building is one of the most iconic images in the history of film and pop culture. The first film led to a sequel (the Son of Kong), an animated series, lots of rip-offs (Mighty Joe Young, Konga, A*P*E, the Mighty Peking Man) and years later inspired a pair of remakes (Not counting the campy Kaiju films King Kong vs. Godzilla and King Kong Escapes.) After all these years, Kong remains one of the greatest giant movie monsters of all time. Let’s take a »

Movies based on video games have long been considered a laughing stock in Hollywood, since most of them have failed miserably. To this day, only one video game movie has earned more than $100 million at the domestic box office, 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie, which took in $131.1 million. The sequel, 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life, took in a disappointing $65.6 million domestically. While we could be on the verge of video games breaking box office barriers, with Warcraft and Assassin's Creed hitting theaters this year, actress and Ufc fighter Ronda Rousey revealed in an interview with GameSpot that she wants to play Samus Aran in an adaptation of the Nintendo classic Metroid. Here's what she had to say below.
"I've always wanted to be Samus. That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. »
