Coming in September for consoles and October for PC, Destiny 2 is the sequel to Bungie's multiplatform, life-eating, scifi video game. As sometimes happens, it's being heralded with a splashy teaser starring actually living, breathing human beings. This one was helmed by ascendant Hollywood talent Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the director behind Kong: Skull Island, and it's pretty great.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

King Kong started his reign in 1933, but it didn't last long. He was eventually overshadowed by Godzilla and a crowd of B-movie pretenders for decades, to the point where even Peter Jackson's attempt to revive him in 2005 couldn't help. But with Kong: Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has created an action-packed spectacle truly worthy of its giant, majestic star.

King Kong returns to the big screen next year and he's about to get an upgrade. The Eighth Wonder of the World stars in the action-adventure film Kong: Skull Island, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and starring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson. Skull Island is the second film in a planned universe that's leading up to Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.
