Legendary and Warner Bros. offered a glimpse of their other expanding cinematic universe, the Godzilla/Kong-verse with the first footage for Jordan Vogt-Roberts Kong: Skull Island! Given the cast involved we’re hoping it’ll be just as good as Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla.
The 70s set Kong looks like a monster movie by way of the Vietnam War and the ties to a larger universe and impending fight with Godzilla are already established in the trailer. Kong looks every bit as stylish as Godzilla but offers its own look and scale–one that may be more devastating both physically and psychologically. While Godzilla was established as the hero of his feature, Kong looks to be every bit the adversary of mankind. A blend of pulp fiction and war horror, Kong may make us reexamine what we thought we knew about the classic beast. It’s high time we started fearing giant monsters again.
