Kong: Skull Island Gets a Full, Ape-Filled Trailer!

So, uh, this is kind of surprising. We’ve got a new Kong: Skull Island Trailer, and it’s, well…

Did we know that John C. Reilly was gonna be in the movie as a wacky comedy relief? He seems funny, but, like…is anyone else getting that strange feeling? Hear me out. The new Godzilla movie was really popular, and a definite success. And Hollywood now wants to pit Godzilla against King Kong again, and they’re creating a whole united franchise here. But this trailer…

The biggest complaint people had with Godzilla was that the titular kaiju wasn’t in a lot of the movie. That was not a complaint I shared. I was fine with the reduced screentime.

But look at this trailer: it opens with a catchy pop song. That has quickly become a cliche. We see a ton of Kong, as well as all manner of other monsters. No subtlety here. And then John C. Reilly randomly shows up to deliver all the trailer-worthy one-liners. This trailer was clearly made in an assembly line. And what does that mean for the movie as a whole?
