Got more news from this year’s Comic-Con?
My, yes – yes, I do.
The mystery shrouding Tom Hiddleston-led Kong: Skull Island was finally unlocked a little, when the powers that be debuted a trailer for the John Vogt-Roberts-helmed production – which also features Oscar winner Brie Larson, 10 Cloverfield Lane’s John Goodman, Toby Kebbell, and Samuel L. Jackson, among others – at the convention yesterday.
Set in a pre-tech-is-everywhere era, the 1970s, the blockbuster will zero in on a group of explorers arriving on the hard-to-reach island that King Kong calls home, only to discover – at least at first – that a veritable cornucopia of crazy creatures both fascinating and dangerous lurks within.
This according to the Hiddle-hunk himself, so you make sure to get as excited as you can for Taylor Swift’s bf du jour, alright?
I know I is.
Kong: Skull Island was meant to open this November, but it is now set for next March, and it. Looks. Incredible with its shades of like, Nam (not being glib, for you know what I mean!) and fresh take on the material....
That it is supposed to be part of this in-the-works cross-movies Monster Mash that also will include the likes of Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp, well.... Color me intrigued.
