From the looks of it, this is going to be one of the highlights of 2017. A very short, 30-second teaser trailer has debuted online for Kong: Skull Island, the brand new King Kong movie hitting theaters next year. Jordan Vogt-Roberts directs this adventure to Kong Island, telling a new origin of King Kong, where they encounter the giant ape and try to take him out with weapons. But we all know it will take more than that. Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson star with a cast including Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Wigham, Toby Kebbell and Tian Jing. There isn't much new footage revealed in this teaser, and I still prefer the first US teaser more, but I'm looking forward to this film and any new glimpse we get is exciting.

A trip back to the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes, the new film will reportedly follow a team of explorers (led by a character played by Tom Hiddleston), who venture deep inside the treacherous, primordial island to find the leader's brother along with a mythical serum, confronting extraordinary creatures along the way. Kong: Skull Island is directed by American filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts, of the films The Kings of Summer and Nick Offerman: American Ham previously, as well as plenty of TV work before those. The screenplay has credits for Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly, John Gatins and Dan Gilroy. Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros will release Kong: Skull Island in theaters everywhere starting March 10th, 2017 early next year. Are you ready for an adventure on Skull Island?
