The biggest ape of all time is back in a big way this March when Kong: Skull Island hits theaters everywhere. Today, we have some exciting new footage with 4 TV spots. Warner Bros. and Legendary have also released two more thrilling banners. And if that wasn't enough, we have a new Godzilla Vs. King Kong tease as the name of this monster movie universe is unveiled.
Skull Island will be in select IMAX 3D and 2D theaters on March 10. Coming from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures, the movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts from a screenplay by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly, with a story by John Gatins. Producers are Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia. Executive Producer are Eric McLeod and Edward Cheng.
The exciting ensemble cast for this new take on the King Kong mythos includes an all-star line-up. »
A new TV spot has emerged for Kong: Skull Island and it gives a little bit of insight into how Godzilla factors into this universe. Check it out!
Ever since Godzilla concluded and the idea of a King Kong vs Godzilla movie was floated out there, we knew we'd get a tie-in in Kong: Skull Island. We just didn't expect to see that before the movie came out.
As you can see from the Reign TV Spot, Kong: Skull Island gives the reason for the "nuclear testing" that ultimately created Godzilla. However, it's not as it seems. John Goodman explains that it wasn't a simple test, but instead they were trying to kill something. That something could be Kong or perhaps one of the many monsters in or around Skull Island.
Including this easter egg into a TV spot would normally seem like poor placement, unless there is an even »

Shared universes have become all the rage thanks to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and with Godzilla and King Kong set to clash on the big screen in a few years from now, fans have been wondering for a while what this world they shared will be called. Well, thanks to some toy packaging, we finally know.
How does the “MonsterVerse” sound? An admittedly simple name, it’s to the point and makes sense for the world which will include the upcoming Godzilla sequel and Kong: Skull Island. We still know pretty much nothing about Godzilla vs. King Kong, though we have heard that the size of the latter has been increased in order to make it easier for them to come to blows on the big screen.
It’s going to be up to Kong: Skull Island to introduce a new version of that iconic creature, while »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties.
This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.
Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »

Four brand new TV spots for Warner Bros. Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island have landed online, and while most of the footage showcased has already been unveiled through previous trailers/promos, each one offers up a decent amount of never-before-revealed footage and dialogue as well. See them all, courtesy of Joblo, below…
Surprisingly, the first spot, entitled “The Island,” has a lighter and more poignant tone than the other promos and attempts to paint Kong as a relatively sympathetic figure who’s home is being taken over by a group of humans. “All Hail the King,” “Hunt That Ape” and “Man is King” turn their focus towards Kong’s violent side, the other monsters on the island and the fire and destruction that comes along with the humans.

Former Fox Film chief Jim Gianopulos is in preliminary talks with China’s Dalian Wanda Group to run and expand its Legendary Pictures, according to two sources close to the executive.
The discussions with Wanda honcho Jack Gao, whom Gianopulos has known for years, are in the very early stages, the sources said. Many key issues have not even been discussed at this point, including Gianopulos’ compensation, an actual business plan, and how much Wanda is willing to invest in building Legendary into a full-fledged studio. Wanda has said in the past that it plans to invest billions of dollars into Hollywood assets.
Legendary is in search of a new leader to succeed Thomas Tull, who two days ago announced his departure as chairman and CEO from the company he founded in 2005, then sold it to Wanda last year for $3.5 billion. Legendary disclosed in a regulatory filing last May that »

The Eighth Wonder of the World may be getting on in years, but he's certainly lost none of his ferocity nor his penchant for tiny blondes. Ever since the character made his debut in 1933, we've seen several adaptations of the King Kong legend over the years, the latest of which will be Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island. Throwing together a knock-out cast, including Tom... Read More »

March may be one of the busiest movie months of the year (not to mention, one of the busiest months in recent memory) with the arrival of five major potential blockbusters: Logan, Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast, Power Rangers, and Ghost in the Shell. Just moments ago, Skull Island star Samuel L. Jackson dropped an awesome new TV spot for the upcoming Jordan Vogt-Roberts-directed film giving us a pretty badass introduction to his character, Lieutenant Colonel Packard, who lovingly refers to himself as the cavalry. Also, thanks to Collider, we have a second TV spot with even more action-packed footage of the entire cast trying to understand and survive the King of Apes. Update: Star Tom Hiddleston has debuted his own TV spot featuring some background information on his character, Captain James Conrad. A fourth TV spot has also been unearthed, courtesy of Toho Kingdom. Stay tuned for more. »

You know, if you had asked me if we were living in an age filled to the brim with kaiju (giant monster) movies, I would’ve probably answered with a pretty solid no. With all the content that’s out there, I think it’s safe to say the big ones out there are mostly standard superhero fare. But if I took a little deeper look, and actually looked at what’s come out recently, as well as what’s on the horizon, I may recognize a different narrative.
Between the likes of Transformers (I know, not technically a kaiju film), Pacific Rim, Power Rangers, Godzilla, and Kong: Skull Island, there definitely seems have been a subtle resurgence of the long-running genre. And with it, it almost seems like the perfect time for a parody film to hit theaters. While I couldn’t call the trailer to the upcoming Anne Hathaway film, »

Warner Bros. soon got onboard with the company, entering into a co-financing partnership, with RatPac that replaced Legendary as Warner’s key investor. RatPac operates as a production company and financing entity, and has a $450 million deal that covers 75 pictures with Warner Bros. over four years.
“Warner Brothers is the greatest partner anyone could ever have,” Ratner says. “It’s truly a family business there, and I know that sounds weird, because they’re a massive corporation, but you get that vibe with them, starting with Kevin Tsujihara. Warner’s has always been like that, and they still operate like that. It’s a very friendly, encouraging place to make movies. I’m hoping to direct my next picture there.”
And the feeling is mutual. “We’ve known and worked with Brett for years, »

‘Awesome’ is a term that is so often overused not just in the film industry, but throughout the world of entertainment to the point that the word itself has become something of a cliché. However that may be, awesome is perhaps the perfect descriptor for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong, a beast so breathtaking – so immense – that he’ll become the tallest interpretation of the godly ape yet when Kong: Skull Island opens in two months’ time.
Pegged for March 10, Skull Island is the name of the Pacific island on which most of Vogt-Roberts’ monstrous reboot takes place. Home to a vast array of weird, wonderful, and downright extraordinary creatures – from Skull Crawlers to skyscraper-sized spiders to quasi-dinosaurs, they’re all here – Brie Larson and her team of intrepid explorers will soon be stepping foot onto the place where myth and science meet.
As previously teased, Kong: Skull Island »

This banner from yesterday featured a slightly calmer-looking King, as Brie Larson's beauty appeared to be in the process of reasoning with the beast. However, these latest official Kong: Skull Island posters depict the iconic creature in all his rage-filled glory, as he unleashes hell on the island's interlopers. Tell us, are you looking forward to this movie, or so you think King Kong should have been laid to rest with Peter Jackson's reboot back in 2005? 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. Starring Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Jing Tian, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham, and Toby Kebbell, Kong: Skull Island is set to be released on March 10th, 2017. »

We are in the age of the cinematic reinvention of nostalgia soaked TV reboots. We have Baywatch coming out in a few months and today we have our first good look at director Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers reboot. A big screen re-imagining has been on the cards for a while. In early 2015 Detention director Joseph Kahn surprised us with a realistic, yet ultraviolent take on Saban’s treasured property. Quickly jumped upon and taken down across the internet the news quickly came out that Power Rangers was indeed coming to the big screen.
The team writing the story for this reboot includes Kong: Skull Island’s John Gatins Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama from Dracula Untold, X-Men: First Class’s Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, and, intriguingly, Max Landis. The film needs a director with a solid vision and a good head to pull all the »
