‘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.

Movie Review: Sing

Sing

Sing
Director: Garth Jennings
Screenwriter: Garth Jennings
Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Tori Kelly, Taron Egerton, Nick Kroll
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | 110 minutes
Release Date: December 21, 2016

Sometimes what looks good can end up being just slightly disappointing. In this case, Illumination’s Sing gives a very earnest effort through its well-intentioned story and an excellent collection of songs that spans generations and genres, but falls very short of being great through its lack of a narrative and inability to juggle the many subplots. Backed by a great ensemble of actors and singers, director Garth Jenning‘s animated film has all the makings of an Illumination Entertainment film, but fails to execute a great concept.

Sing Interview Garth Jennings

In Illumination’s latest film, Sing, Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) is holding a singing competition in his dying theater in a last ditch effort to scrounge up the money needed before the bank can repossess his beloved property. The optimistic koala settles on five contestants: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid elephant (Tori Kelly), a pig (Reese Witherspoon), a gorilla (Taron Egerton), and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), in hopes that they can generate the funds necessary to keep the theater afloat but also bring back interest in genuine talent. Little does he know that the road to success isn’t easy, but with a little hard work and some faith, it can be done.

We had a phone interview with the film’s director Garth Jennings (A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Son of Rambow) to talk about what it was like to get clearance for the songs, working on his first animated film, his reaction to all the positive buzz, and much more. Check it out below.

Kong: Skull Island Final Trailer

Back in July during San Diego Comic-Con the first trailer for Kong: Skull Island was released to the masses. 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. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight), John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane, Monsters Inc.), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, The Walking Dead), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Warcraft), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Keanu), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, True Detective), and John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Wreck-It Ralph).

Now the official trailer for the movie has been unleashed by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and can be seen below. The new trailer is only slightly longer than the first trailer’s 2:19 run time, but includes a bunch of good looks at King Kong, who we previously only had one good peek at in that recent image, as well as some other creatures who call Skull Island home. In addition to the new trailer, a pair of new posters have also been released. Continue below to check them out.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly To Re-Unite For Sherlock Holmes Movie

Remember way back in 2008, right around the time that the first of Guy Ritchie’s action movie takes on Arthur Conan Doyle‘s Sherlock Holmes character was on the way starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, when there was a second more comedic Sherlock project in the works starring Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby co-stars Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell as Holmes and Watson?

The screenplay for the movie was written by Etan Cohen, but the movie didn’t materialize at the time. Now comes word that the project, titled Holmes & Watson, is up and moving again. This time around Ferrell is set to play Holmes instead of Watson and another one of his Talladega Nights co-stars, John C. Reilly, who also starred with Ferrell in Step Brothers, is taking on the role of Watson.

Disney In Depth Banner

Stop the digital presses! A Wreck-It Ralph sequel has been officially announced, although ever since John C. Reilly hinted at a sequel in development, everyone has just been waiting for word from the Mouse House itself.

Now it is actually happening. The Walt Disney Animation Studios film, to debut on March 9, 2018 – thus supplanting the previously scheduled Jack and the Beanstalk adaptation called Gigantic, to premiere in November 2018 – will see the return of Ralph, Vanellope, and many more. Will the sequel destroy the competition, proving to naysayers that a further entry in this brand will succeed, and shall it add to viewers’ adoration of the animated movie? I have no doubt that Wreck-It Ralph 2, as it is tentatively called, will absolutely nail it!
