Unlike Peter Jackson’s divisive King Kong, Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ take on the story seems to promise more action and more of a 70s, Aliens vibe. Gone are the film crews and screeching starlets, replaced by a scientific team going a geographical survey alongside a military escort. The new trailer for Kong: Skull Island shows that a big part of this survey is dropping bombs on the island and it would seem that at least one inhabitant of the place isn’t super keen on that.

Kong: Skull Island looks like a whole heap of fun with crazy monsters, gorgeous effects, and a killer cast. Vogt-Roberts seems to be taking the Godzilla approach to monster movie making by creating tons of atmosphere and going all out with the good looking money shots. The sequences with the giant ape skeletons, encroaching fog, and some sort of giant lizard thing look insane, and anything with Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, and Tom Hiddleston has got to be worth the price of admission.

Kong: Skull Island will see theatrical release in the US on March 10, 2017.
