The story navigates around a group of scientists and soldiers who are tasked to venture on a newly discovered island in the Southern Pacific. When they are about to land on the island, a giant gorilla named Kong dismantles their helicopters and nearly smashes them to their graves. Captain James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston), together with journalist Weaver (Brie Larson) and Packard, a military man, explores the arcane tropical paradise in search of Kong’s identity.
Hiddleston shortly appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday to screen the hair-raising trailer. He and Larson also shared the film’s posters on their Twitter accounts.
