I will make an open confession that makes me feel a little dirty: I’ve never been a huge King Kong fan.
I respect a few of the films we’ve seen over the decades (Cooper and Schoedsack’s 1933 effort being my personal pick for best, if I’m making one), and I’ve always thought the idea behind the beast was cool, and had a lot of potential to be worked with.
I’ve just never genuinely loved a King Kong movie.
That might change soon, when Kong: Skull Island arrives. I can’t deny the addictiveness of this new international trailer, which, to my knowledge, offers the best look we’ve gotten from this Kong flick, yet.
Watch it below. And check it out on Mach 10th, 2017.
