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 »

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, »
