Kong: Skull Island was a movie. And like most movies, it got an Honest Trailer last week. Those are always fun!
I don’t really have much else to talk about today! The Internet has been pretty quiet. I saw It on Saturday and that was a really good movie! Can’t wait for the Honest Trailer of that!
I’m not sure what to expect with Kong: Skull Island. I’m worried that it’s just going to be a big, CGI-filled action movie that just happens to include King Kong. But there’s a new trailer that looks absolutely phenomenal!
Like, that’s the most artistic movie trailer I think I’ve ever seen! It’s well edited, it’s got exciting new footage, some great dialogue bits, and it even makes John C. Reilly’s random comedic relief character seem alright. I dig this trailer.
Also, the movie comes out in less than two weeks! We are definitely already in prime movie season, it would seem!
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?
