Legendary Pictures has released a brand new trailer for Kong: Skull Island which opens in theaters this Friday.
Up until now, the trailers have used classic rock songs to evoke a tone similar to that of the Apocalypse Now flavored take on the god-like Gorilla which is set in the 1970’s at the end of the Vietnam War.
The latest trailer, however, possesses a very different tone as it features the track “Groove” by Young Guru. You can check it out below.
In addition to a new trailer, Legendary has also ramped up the final marketing push for the new film to get us all ready for the King this weekend with a whopping 11 new featurettes featuring members of the cast including Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, and Samuel L. Jackson.
In the featurettes with Hiddleston, the actor clarifies that the new film is not a remake, nor a prequel or a sequel but rather a new adventure that redefines the myth of King Kong. that You can check out the featurettes below.
The film stars Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Toby Kebbell, Tom Wilkinson, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly, and John Goodman.
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 hits theaters this Friday, March 10.
