As promised, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. this morning delivered the final trailer for “Kong: Skull Island,” one filled with action, humor, horror and, oh, yeah, plenty of giant monsters. All set to the score of “We Gotta Get Out of This Place.”
The trailer is a bit of a departure from what we’ve seen previously, the apparent result of director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ obsession:
Fun fact: WB nailed this piece after I became obsessed with the trailer for THE HANDMAIDEN / wanted a trailer that was heavily rhythmic.

Whatever the impetus was, most will likely agree that at works, with the pacing and music helping to lull the viewer until the arrival of Kong sends the action, and the music, veering out of control.
The year is 1973. Somewhere in our world, it is said that there exists a wondrous island unspoiled by man – a land shrouded in mystery, where myth runs wild. Uncharted and undiscovered.
When the secretive organization known as Monarch identify this destination as the origin point for mysterious new superspecies, they mount an expedition to discover its secrets.
What they find on Skull Island is an adventure beyond any human experience. An exotic paradise of wonders and terrors, where flora and fauna have fused together into an Eden of otherworldly jungle creatures.
As one group fights to escape and the other declares war on Kong, we discover that the mighty primate is at the center of a battle for dominion over the island, locked into a ‘survival of the fittest’ face-off with the terrifying apex predators responsible for wiping out his kin.
Driven by vengeance, Kong will become nature’s fury, and fight to take his rightful place upon the throne of most powerful beast on the island, revealing the story of how Kong became King.
Opening March 10, “Kong: Skull Island” stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell and Eugene Cordero.
