Something BIG is coming to San Diego Comic Con 2017…
To celebrate the home video release of Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Legendary Entertainment are bringing King Kong himself to SDCC. Legendary first revealed that “Kong is Coming” to the con earlier today in a tweet on the film’s official Twitter page, which you can check out below:

So, what does this mean exactly? Well, according to the Unofficial SDCC Blog, fans will get the chance to “visit a Monarch Containment Zone which houses the gigantic bones of Kong’s ancestors, enter the Iwi temple to uncover the ancient secrets of Skull Island, and navigate the beast-infested jungles of the island for a close encounter with the mighty Kong himself.”
The blog has also shared a ton of images (including one of the greatest selfie locations of all time: in the palm of Kong’s hand) and a video from the exhibit, which is currently being built. It all looks pretty cool, so head on over to their page to check them out.
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Kong: Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Toby Kebbell, Tom Wilkinson, Terry Notary and John C. Reilly.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic monster in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
Kong: Skull Island arrives on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD today, July 18, 2017.
Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up
Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.
I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.
If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
