Cinema Buzz’s Jose Cuenca spent the day talking with the cast and director of Kong: Skull Island.
About the movie…
In 1973, former British Special Air Service Captain James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) is hired by government agent Bill Randa (John Goodman) to guide an expedition to map out an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean known as “Skull Island”. Randa also recruits the Sky Devils helicopter squadron led by Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) to escort them to the island, and the group is soon joined by pacifist photojournalist Mason Weaver (Brie Larson), who believes the scientific expedition to be a cover for a crooked military operation and plans to expose it.
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.
