Kong: Skull Island looks like it’s going to be a ton of fun. It feels like it’s doing something different with King Kong while still paying homage to the character, the cast is outstanding, and if they need to build up the character so that he can throw down against Godzilla in a few years, so be it. I’m not going to say “No” to giant monsters wrecking things, and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts looks like he’s made a unique and thrilling action movie.

Here’s the official synopsis for Kong: Skull Island:
The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in “Kong: Skull Island.” This compelling, original adventure tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
