Kong: Skull Island movie news, trailers and cast

Kong: Skull Island March 10th, 2017

Just when it seemed like Kong: Skull Island would be left behind during today's March movie blitz with Logan and Power Rangers, Warner Brothers releases four very different looks at the upcoming film. 

The first trailer links Skull Island with the 2014 Godzilla, referencing the 1954 nuclear tests as a cover-up. Later trailers show a softer side to Kong, finding unlikely allies in Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson.

They also showcase Kong fighting chains and a giant octopus--Some fans have already begun linking the octopus battle to the 1962 fight with "Oodako" in King Kong vs. Godzilla. Take a look and enjoy the trailer collection below:

Wow, those are some excellent TV spots. Not afraid to hold back on showing us some new exciting footage. And there's little doubt in my mind that the octopus thing is meant to be a nod to Oodako. The brief shots of Kong taking on the giant Skullcrawler also were amazing.

I'm also intrigued about where the story is going. It's starting to make sense how Kong seemed to be the antagonist in the teaser trailer, only for the first official trailer and all subsequent marketing to make it clear he is meant to be a hero. A few characters will be sympathizing with and helping Kong, while others will be trying to kill him. It could make for an interesting dynamic among the human cast, and give Kong the connection to humanity that makes him unique.

And of course, it's nice to see a little continuity nod to Godzilla. I like how Legendary is trying to build this universe organically. There are subtle continuity connections between this movie and Godzilla so far that the attentive viewer is sure to notice, but nothing blatantly trying to shove the cinematic universe down the audience's throats. It reassures me that Legendary is worried about making Kong: Skull Island a solid standalone film before anything else.

Can't wait for this movie.

Now, maybe it's just me, but one of the most interesting parts about the trailers is the giant spider thing. The main reason this interests me, aside from the obvious references to the "lost" spider pit scene, is the potential relations to Kumonga. I would love it if that was one of the connections to Godzilla, as well as another piece pulling everything together. Everyone is speculating towards a Godzilla, Rodan, or Biollante appearance of some sort, but I feel like Kumonga would be a better fit to tie into, seeing as how everything on the island is bigger, who better than Kumonga? In addition, the Oodako reference/appearance is totally awesome, and of course, the giant Skullcrawler.

^If it spits webs from it's mouth, then it is a relative to Kumonga. Until then, it should be considered your typical giant spider monster that one would expect to find on Skull Island. I would love to see Kumonga in a new movie (so long as they don't design it like a tarantula. I hate those things), but we can only speculate at the possibility the pit spider is related to Kumonga. However, it still seems like wild speculation.

I cannot wait to see Kong in action. All those action sequences have me pumped up.

"You came here looking for a dragon..."

Was John Goodman trying to track Godzilla?!  Maybe I'm nuts, but...

Anyway, since this is how my brain works, its worth taking a look at the increasing number of monsters in this movie.  The list is getting pretty long!  So far, we have:

Kong (natch...)

The Skull Crawlers (various sizes, some small, some Kaiju-sized)

The Giant Spider(s)

A Giant Octopus

A Giant Water Buffalo

That Weird Bug Thing in the Log (from the first trailer)

A Swarm of Pterosaur/Bat Creatures (the toy is dubbed "Pterodactylus")

So yeah... lots of creatures.  You have no idea how happy this makes me.

 

Is it March yet?

^^ Well, of course I'm only throwing out completely unbased speculation, I'm simply saying "why not?". It would create a reasonable lore. (how many giant spiders can honestly exist, and do we really think there are more than a couple, especially on Skull Island, seeing as how the Skullcrawlers and Kong are the top of the food chain. Something that big has to be pretty significant.) I just think it would be an unobtrusive way of linking Godzilla and Kong into the same universe without having everyone constantly talking about the big G or without him violently crashing into the movie. And it certainly appears big enough, and a reasonable design, to be Kumonga, even if they don't explicitly state it. In the current state of the Monsterverse, I don't expect monsters like Kumonga to be anything more than a cameo or minor villain.

He says "you came here looking for a tracker." not dragon. Show us the whole movie in the tv spots/trailers why don't ya? That worked well for Batman vs Superman right? oh wait.....

^Cynic much?

I mean... Batman v Superman's marketing helped propel it to $870 million+ world wide... If Kong makes that much (doubt it) we'd be in beautiful shape.

Haha very true Gman, but yeah I thought Goodman says "Dragon" as well. To "track a Dragon". Could be Godzilla, or could be Ghidorah, who knows... Loving the references to Godzilla though!

I can't wait to see these two heavyweights square off. They need to make Kong a little taller & a lot quicker than Godzilla to even it up.
