Feels like there's been an awful lot of trailers, tv spots, featurettes, etc for Kong: Skull Island. And it's all been some very impressive-looking stuff, for sure, but I have to say I do think they saved the best for last with this final trailer. Kong: Skull Island hits on March 10, 2017, starring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman and John C. Reilly. The film is scripted by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. Legendary has promised that the story will honor the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but will place Skull Island in an entirely new, distinct timeline.
