Monsters Exist In The New Trailer For ‘Kong: Skull Island’

“Is that a monkey?” No, it’s just a bit bigger than that. Check it out in the new trailer for Kong: Skull Island, which just premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, and Samuel L Jackson, you’d almost think this was a Marvel movie, but it’s part of Legendary Pictures’ new shared monster universe with includes the recent reboot of Godzilla.

The new trailer shows quite a bit more than the first one from San Diego Comic-Con, although director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings Of Summer) hasn’t been shy about showing the monster, telling Entertainment Weekly, “I’m sort of sick of the notion that a monster movie needs to wait an hour or 40 minutes until the creature shows up… Something about this movie made me want to reject that and play a very, very different game.”

In other words, when Dr. Steve Brule (What do you mean, that’s not his character’s name in this?) says in the trailer, “You shouldn’t have come here,” that’s probably not two hours into the movie.

Official synopsis:

In March 2017, the producers of Godzilla transport audiences to the birthplace of one of the most powerful monster myths of all in KONG: SKULL ISLAND, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures.

When a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakens titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster and man.
