Congrats, if your goal was to rile me up enough to actually register and comment!  You left off the first lead (well, after the ape)--the guy probably most well-known to the target demographic of this movie:  TOM HIDDLESTON!  Understandable, perhaps, in the tweet.  But in the article?  That's some poor journalism right there.  Unless, of course, you are performing some reverse-psychology click-baiting.  In which case: well-played.  Well-played.

So, you publish an article back in September of last year and mention the only cast member annouced at the time (as he was cast FIRST being the LEAD of the move), Tom Hiddleston, yet now you leave him off entirely? Why?! Is it becasue his fellow co-stars are recent Academy Award winner/nominees and Tom isn't yet (with heavy emphasis on the YET)? Or do you think that Tom isn't as well known? I truly hope there is a legitimate reason because even WITH one, I think you've single handedly ticked off a massive fandom with this drivel of an inaccurate article.

loving you

No me importa si no reconocen a Tom, lo unico que me importa es lo que siento y si voy a ver esta pelicula es por el, Tom es lo unico que me interesa.

Can i ask but three questions? Does it set in the 21st or 20th century or long ago? Will the V-rex come back and does it tell about the ancient civilization on Skull island?
