Kong: Skull Island won’t hit movie theatres until March 2017.
Thanks to the MTV Movie Awards, last night we got a look behind the scenes of the eagerly anticipated movie.
Kong: Skull Island is produced by Legendary Pictures, and starring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and Oscar winner Brie Larson. The movie tells the story of how the legendary King Kong was discovered.
Larson plays Weaver, who is a peace-seeking photojournalist, and Hiddleston plays Captain James Conrad, a former British Special Air Service officer. The movie is apparently set in the 1970s and does not act as an official prequel to the original 1933 movie which starred Fay Wray. Hiddleston has been reported as saying the movie will provide a fresh spin on the mythology of King Kong.
John Goodman is apparently playing a government official called Randa who is the leader of the expedition to find a mystical serum, and no doubt there will be a nefarious reason for this as that is normally what the government is about in movies such as this.
We look forward to learning more about what has the potential to be one of 2017’s biggest blockbusters as after all who doesn’t love a good old fashioned monster movie. The mythology of King Kong has repeatedly proved highly successful in all its previous incarnations.
Kong: Skull Island is scheduled to be released on March 10, 2017. This date has been moved at least once already there is potential for another change.
