Video: I have zero doubts that this final trailer for Kong: Skull Island, released less than two weeks before the film’s release, is filled with spoilers. But I really don’t care. It is simply one of the most incredible, monster-filled, action-packed trailers we’ve seen in a long time, and we love it.
Kong: Skull Island opens March 9 and you’re going to start seeing reviews this week. Whatever those reviews end up saying, though, at least we’ll always have this wild, over-the-top, glorious trailer. Check it out.
The director of Kong, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, tweeted that this trailer is the result of his obsession with the trailer for Park Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden. He wanted a more rhythmic trailer, and so there’s this, set to “We’ve Got to Get Out of This Place” by the Animals, which is both an awesome song, but also pretty appropriate for the humans who make the mistake of visiting Skull Island.
We’ll have more on Kong later this week. It opens next Thursday.
