Kong: Skull Island
Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Screenwriter: Dan Gilroy, Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG | 118 Minutes
Release Date: March 10, 2017

“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.

‘Kong Skull Island’ Trailer: There’s A Reason Why Kong Is King On This Island

Kong: Skull Island Header

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island is that the film is a period piece, that takes place almost entirely on the titular island. Set in the 1970s, an expedition team sets out to chart the recently discovered island only to find out that there are dark secrets and scary beasts that roam the land.

Previous trailers pretty much set the narrative and loose connections to the King of Monsters universe, that Warner Bros and Legendary are creating, but now this new trailer is all about the action between the humans killing the oversized monsters and Kong, who is king of the island.

Check out the newest trailer below.

The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), and stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor, Crimson Peak), Brie Larson (Room, United States of Tara), Samuel L.

In addition to the new trailer, a pair of new posters have also been released. Continue below to check them out.

The marketing campaign for Kong: Skull Island has been unusually quiet. But perhaps that is the quiet before the storm.

After teasing us with the first image and some footage at SDCC and dropping a few hints at an inevitable clash between himself and Godzilla, Warner Bros. has released our first look at the iconic ape for a new generation. Check it out below.

Straight Outta Compton movie still 03

Straight Outta Compton
Director: F. Gary Gray
Screenwriters: Johnathan Herman, Andrea Berloffk
Cast: Corey Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jason Mitchell, Paul Giamatti, Neil Brown Jr., Aldis Hodge
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 147 Minutes
Release Date: August 14, 2015

On the surface, many biopics based on a music artist or group will probably follow the same old Behind the Music narrative of the successes, hardships, and downfalls of said career. Of course, the subject of those episodic documentaries have had some sort of significance, but few have had as much of an impact both in the music industry and culturally as NWA.

In F. Gary Gray‘s Straight Outta Compton, we see a dramatized version of the rise and fall of the rap group whose significance resonates even 30-plus years after their first studio album of the same name. It was because of NWA’s groundbreaking music that the world learned about Compton, CA, and South Central Los Angeles. But the film also covers what went on when the music stopped, revealing that meteoric success can’t stop an inevitable disbanding.

‘Straight Outta Compton’ Interviews: Cast Talks Scoring “Life Lottery,” Expectations, More

Straight Outta Compton movie still 03

Straight Outta Compton covers the real life story of NWA, the music group that helped bring gangster rap into the mainstream as well as put a spotlight on the injustice of law enforcement. Though the film chronicles over five years of DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, and MC Ren’s activities as NWA from their start to their eventual disbanding in a little over two hours, it does so much more than dramatize a real-life story.

Geeks of Doom were invited to the film’s press day where we got to talk to the young cast, O’Shea Jackson Jr. – Ice Cube’s own son – who plays Ice Cube, breakout star Corey Hawkins who plays Dr. Dre, and scene stealing Jason Mitchell who plays Eazy-E. During the press conference the three talked about portraying their real-life counter parts, some of the emotional scenes, and the bonds that were created during the production of the film. Check out the full interview below, and be sure to check out our interview with Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and director F. Gary Gray if you missed it.

Straight Outta Compton movie first look

Straight Outta Compton chronicles the history of the iconic rap group NWA, and how its members helped revolutionize the music industry and influence a nation with their controversial music that was a reflection of their life in south Los Angeles. From their meteoric rise to their disbanding, the biographical film exposes the honest truth about each of the members’ dreams, ambitions, and hopes, and goes far beyond the conventional “Behind The Music”-style documentary storytelling.

We were recently invited to the film’s press day where we had an opportunity to talk to Straight Outta Compton director, F. Gary Gray, as well as two of its producers and NWA members, Ice Cube and DJ Yella, where we talked about how the project came into fruition, the auditioning process, how the cast exceeded expectations, and addressing the critics who condemned NWA’s music but are receiving praise for the film. Check out the full interview here below.
