There have been a lot of King Kong movies. Maybe not quite as many as his giant cohort Godzilla, but when a franchise has been rebooted four times, you’d think all of the creative juices would have been taped by now. And yet here we are with a new trailer for Kong: Skull Island, a fifth franchise reboot which not only looks wildly different from any King Kong movie before it, but it just looks flat out amazing.
Seriously, if you thought you were done with the giant ape after Peter Jackson’s 2005 reboot, you are really, really going to want to watch this trailer. If you’re still not sold, we don’t know what else to say. This looks like one of the most exciting movies of 2017.
Kong: Skull Island stars Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, and Terry Notary. Oh, and a whole mess of monsters. It’s directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) and hits theaters on March 10, 2017.
