Kong: Skull Island is still about a year away from release, so it's understandable that we haven't seen a billion trailers for it yet. But we will greedily admit we wish we had more to see, more to pick apart frame by frame. This is a new King Kong movie, after all. He has long, long been a huge part of our cinematic imagination and we can't wait to see what an exciting new filmmaker like Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) does with the icon.
As much as we'd love a trailer for the movie at this stage, we'll gladly take this behind-the-scenes footage that MTV premiered this weekend. It introduces us to the movie's cast - Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell - which is cool, but more importantly it gives us a fleeting glimpse of its setting. This isn't a total modernization of the giant beast. No, Kong: Skull Island is a period piece set after the Vietnam War. It also sounds like it's going to be an adventure movie about a team of soldiers (and a war photographer) who have to trek from one side of the island to the other, encountering a bunch of different beasties along the way.
Check it out.
Kong: Skull Island will hit theaters on March 10, 2017.
