Who want’s to awaken the king? Warner Bros and Legendary Pics ! The decades old production companies have just released a action packed new poster and teaser for their 2017 film Kong: Skull Island. Both the poster and trailer releases were both done in honor of the soon ending SDCC (check out our coverage below!). The King Kong franchise reboot is set to star Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Wilkinson, Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Thomas Mann and John Ortiz.

Let’s discuss the new poster and trailer shall we: The poster revealed to me a giant ape vaguely concealed by a cloud of mist with a soldier on the remains of a beast trying to view it. According to reports by ScreenCrush the solider is that of a Vietnam-war solider during the Vietnam-war era. So with that taken into count and with the trailer drop, I’m guessing the film is set in the 70’s. The trailer features the army inside helicopters flying over the jungle when a palm tree gets catapulted towards them and takes one of their helicopters down. The trailer then concludes with the ominous words by John Goodman ” monsters are real” and Samuel L Jackson head to head with the 10 story beast.

I say 10 story due to claims by the director Jordan Vogt-Roberts who revealed to THR in the past the film will bestow “…the biggest Kong there’s ever been. Not 10 foot or 30 foot, but a 100-foot ape.” And the trailer definitely shows it! Look at the size of that head!!!

Hitting theaters March 10, 2017. The film is set follow “…a group of diverse, talented explorers who’re all brought to Skull Island, unaware of all the dangers that it holds. Beautiful yet deadly, the island threatens the team’s expedition once they realized they’ve stumbled upon the monstrous home of the ape fan have come to know as Kong.”
