Sony has hired screenwriter Derek Connolly to pen the latest draft of Metal Gear Solid, a movie adaptation of the hit video game series created by Hideo Kojima.
The games follow Solid Snake, a special ops agent who’s particularly skilled in stealth, infiltration, and espionage. Snake is often tasked with destroying giant bipedal tanks, called Metal Gears, which carry nuclear weapons.

“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island is that the film is a period piece, that takes place almost entirely on the titular island. Set in the 1970s, an expedition team sets out to chart the recently discovered island only to find out that there are dark secrets and scary beasts that roam the land.
Previous trailers pretty much set the narrative and loose connections to the King of Monsters universe, that Warner Bros and Legendary are creating, but now this new trailer is all about the action between the humans killing the oversized monsters and Kong, who is king of the island.
Warner Brothers Pictures has released a collection of promos for the next King Kong movie, titled Kong: Skull Island. The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell.
The videos include two new featurettes, one a two-minute preview called “All Hail the King,” and the other an almost three-minute IMAX experience featurette. The rest of the videos are clips, ranging from 24 seconds to over one minute, titled “Monsters Exist,” “Monster Battle,” “Magnificence For This,” “Graveyard,” and “Is That A Monkey?”

Back in July during San Diego Comic-Con the first trailer for Kong: Skull Island was released to the masses. The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), and stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor, Crimson Peak), Brie Larson (Room, United States of Tara), Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight), John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane, Monsters Inc.), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, The Walking Dead), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Warcraft), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton, Keanu), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, True Detective), and John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Wreck-It Ralph).
Now the official trailer for the movie has been unleashed by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and can be seen below. The new trailer is only slightly longer than the first trailer’s 2:19 run time, but includes a bunch of good looks at King Kong, who we previously only had one good peek at in that recent image, as well as some other creatures who call Skull Island home. In addition to the new trailer, a pair of new posters have also been released. Continue below to check them out.
