During last night's MTV Movie Awards, which I'm sure you all were raptly watching, a sneak peek premiered for the upcoming KONG: SKULL ISLAND. The project, which has long been shrouded in secrecy, is finally lifting the curtain at least slightly, allowing stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell to host a behind-the-scenes peek at the filming, showing off what are some pretty incredible looking sequences.
Look out for a flame-filled vista, my favorite shot from the two minute piece. You can check it out below and take a trip to Skull Island in action for the first time!
The screenplay for KONG: SKULL ISLAND, by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Derek Connolly, and Dan Gilroy follows:
a man who travels to the mythical island and home of the king of the apes. A team of explorers ventures inside what they find to be a treacherous island. The story is said to honor the King Kong lore but in a different time period.
KONG: SKULL ISLAND stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Tom Wilkinson, Thomas Mann, John Ortiz, and Shea Whigham. Will Brittain, Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell will also appear, as a team of pilots. Look for the film in theaters on March 10, 2017.
This film shares a universe with Legendary's GODZILLA. Its release will be followed by GODZILLA 2 on June 8, 2018, and then the crossover rematch GODZILLA VS. KONG in 2020.
