We are treated to a wildly different yet still great trailer for Kong: Skull Island.While the first trailer was much more serious, looking like the spiritual successor to Apocalypse Now, this one is much more lighthearted. John C. Reilly can’t stop making jokes every second he’s on screen in this trailer and it really detracts from the mostly serious tone the movie is going for.
I’m a big fan that they gave up the ghost and just showed us King Kong in his full glory. We – the viewer know that he’s a giant ape so just let us see it. Kong looks fantastic as do some of these crazy set pieces that Reilly, Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston are running around in.
Here’s hoping this is good so we can see the King take his throne from that lame lizard in the big crossover film.
