We’ve had some really good trailers for the upcoming Kong: Skull Island film and now the next piece has arrived that will be of interest to fans around these parts. While the North American posters have been aimed at a Vietnam era feeling to give it something distinctive, the Japanese release is coming up on March 25th, 2017 and the poster they’ve now put out is just, quite frankly, freakin’ awesome as it goes back to the classics and runs with it in a big way.
The film from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures has a $190 million budget.
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the film is set to arrive on March 10th, 2017. The film stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, Jason Mitchell as Glenn Mill, Corey Hawkins, Toby Kebbell as Chapman, Tom Wilkinson, Terry Notary as Kong (mo-cap performance), John Goodman as Randa, John C. Reilly, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, John Ortiz, Shawn Kavanaugh as Josh, Marc Evan Jackson as Woodward, Jing Tian, Eugene Cordero and Will Brittain.
Plot concept: In the 1970s, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
