There’s a Brand New Trailer For KONG: Skull Island
And It’s Awesome…
If film fans in Vietnam weren’t already frothing at the prospect of next year’s release of Kong: Skull Island, they should be now. The film’s producers have just released a brand new trailer for the action-packed prequel that stars Vietnam’s Son Doong Caves as scenery.
Despite an A-list cast of Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman, who are all featured in this latest preview - along with a terrifically bearded John C. Reilly - the real hero is the natural beauty of the mountainous province of Quang Binh.
News first came to hand that the film would be foregoing some of the usual CGI tactics in favour of real-life locations over a year ago, with Vietnam’s prehistoric caves the perfect place to create the other-worldly 'Skull Island' - home of Kong; the giant ape with a soft spot for blondes.
Check out the trailer below. The film is set for release in March 2017.
