One of cinemas biggest stars, King Kong, is making his return to the big screen next spring in the eagerly anticipated Kong: Skull Island and we now have our first proper glimpse of the king of the jungle.
EW has debuted the photo as well as spoke to the film’s director Jordon Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) about the new adventure and what we can expect from the new version of Kong.
“Kong’s always been a little bit tragic,” Vogt-Roberts said about Kong.
“You can’t tell exactly from the still, but the way that he walks on the island, the way that he goes from place to place, I wanted to communicate something about his headspace and about the way that, in certain ways, he’s the protector of this island and then in other ways he’s killing time…. The way he lumbers, the way that he drags himself from place to place, there’s an exhaustion to him. There’s obviously a huge power to him, but there’s a sadness”.
Vogt-Roberts has assembled an impressive cast for the film that includes Oscar Winner Brie Larson (Room), Tom Hiddleston (Crimson Peak), Samuel L. Jackson (The Legend of Tarzan), John C. Reilly (Guardians of the Galaxy), Toby Kebbell (A Monster Calls) and John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane).
Kong: Skull Island arrives on March 10th, 2017.
