Brie Larson talked with Cinema Buzz about her roll in Kong: Skull Island. Brie plays Mason Weaver, a feisty and altruistic photojournalist and peace activist. Larson stated that her character has her “own sort of motive” as to why she joined the expedition, stating, “That’s the interesting thing about this movie. It’s a group of misfits that are all coming from different angles looking at the same thing. You get to see how many different views in regards to nature and how we should handle it are dealt with from many different perspectives.” Larson further added that Weaver has an “interest and respect for nature” and “Through that she has a closer, more loving, and intimate relationship with Kong”.
From the same production team behind the 2014 blockbuster Godzilla, one of the greatest movie monster myths of all time returns to the big screen larger and more impactful than ever. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), Kong: Skull Island transports us to the uncharted island in the Pacific where Kong is king, during the turbulent time in history that was the end of the Vietnam War, in a fresh and spectacular new approach for the audience to this iconic character.
