Kong: Skull Island (2017)
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 leaders brother and a mythical serum, confronting extraordinary creatures along the way. From the look of the below King Kong set photos, the production appears to be on the right track as far as monsters go.
Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Jing Tian, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham and Toby Kebbell are also set to star in Kong: Skull Island. A few of them can be seen posing together in a third photo from the tour company. Per Samuel L. Jacksons Instagram, hes learning to pilot the helicopter pictured. Will we be seeing the same helicopters on the King Kong set? They certainly seem to match the rumored 70s setting.

Randa: This planet doesn’t belong to us. Ancient species owned this earth long before mankind. I spent 30 years trying to prove the truth: monsters exist.
Ralph: Kong’s a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly, but you don’t go into someone’s house and start dropping bombs unless you’re picking a fight.
Lieutenant Colonel Packard: You are going to tell me everything that I should know… or I blow you away.
[points a gun at Randa]
Lieutenant Colonel Packard: We are dealing with a monster from a bygone era!
Ralph: [from trailer] Kong’s God on the island but the devils live below us.
Captain James Conrad: What are they called?
Ralph: I call them Skull Crawlers.
Captain James Conrad: Why?
Ralph: I never said that name out loud before, it sounds stupid now that I think about it. You just call them whatever you want.
Randa: I’m sorry for the loss of your men. But if you want their sacrifice to mean anything, you have to bring back evidence.
