KONG: SKULL ISLAND – New Trailer and Poster
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new trailer and poster for KONG: SKULL ISLAND, a reimagining of the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (THE KINGS OF SUMMER).
In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific — as beautiful as it is treacherous — unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
KONG: SKULL ISLAND stars Tom Hiddleston (THE AVENGERS, THOR series), Samuel L. Jackson (THE HATEFUL EIGHT, Marvel Cinematic Universe), Oscar winner Brie Larson (ROOM, TRAINWRECK), John Goodman (10 CLOVERFIELD LANE, ARGO) and John C. Reilly (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, STEP BROTHERS). The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing (POLICE STORY: LOCKDOWN), Corey Hawkins (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), Jason Mitchell (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), John Ortiz (STEVE JOBS), Thomas Mann (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES), Shea Whigham (THE WOLF OF WALL STREET), Toby Kebbell (DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES) and Eugene Cordero (THE KINGS OF SUMMER).
Vogt-Roberts is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein (Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ GODZILLA ), John Gatins, Dan Gilroy and Derek Connolly. KONG: SKULL ISLAND is produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni with Mary Parent. The executive producers are Eric McLeod and Alex Garcia.
The creative behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Larry Fong (BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE), production designer Stefan Dechant (supervising art director TRUE GRIT, AVATAR), editor Christian Wagner (the FAST & FURIOUS films), and costume designer Mary Vogt (the MEN IN BLACK” films). The team also includes Oscar-winning makeup supervisor Bill Corso (LEMONY SNICKET’S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS,” STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS) and supervising stunt coordinator George Cottle (INTERSTELLAR, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES). The legendary Kong is being brought to life by Industrial Light & Magic, with two-time Oscar winner Stephen Rosenbaum (AVATAR, FORREST GUMP) serving as visual effects supervisor.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Present a Legendary Pictures Production, KONG: SKULL ISLAND. The film will be released worldwide in 2D, 3D in select theatres, and IMAX beginning March 10, 2017, from Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
