The promotion train at Warner Bros. is working overdrive today at Comic Con in San Diego and already we’ve a couple promos (more to come) and now they have unleashed the beast.Kong: Skull Island has it’s first (UK) Trailer stomping online , but beware it’s Awaken the King, check it out…
It’s no surprise this is another film catalogued under ‘re-boot’ or re-imaging’ but since Merian C.Cooper 1933 King Kong classic we’ve never had a version that match the momentum or success. After Gareth Edwards‘ reboot of Godzilla in 2014, it’s given filmmakers a platform that films can have mammoth scope, scale and this King Kong is one Kong we haven’t seen before.
Like comic book movies, it’s hoped those creature features can also cross too and there’s plans that Godzilla will come face to face with King Kong. If your a avid fan of the old Toho Godzilla films you’ll know the pair have already met and it’s hoped a Hollywood version will be in the works too for around 2019-2020. Which mean the new King Kong will be behemoth of size around 100 feet tall making him an equal pairing with the king of monsters.When we watch the new trailer you get a sense of tone similar to Michael Douglas Heart Of Darkness. Exciting stuff or just another same old same rehashed? For the trailers we’ve so far tonight 2017 blockbuster season looks fun!

Kong: Skull Island arrives in UK&Ireland on 10th March 2017.
