Hello everyone! San Diego Comic-Con 2017 got started yesterday and while we haven't gotten our big Hall H panel which may reveal some Monsterverse goodies (keep an eye on the site on Saturday) we have been given quite a few cool Giant Monster things from the show floor and beyond. This includes several toy/collectible announcements, a "Kong: Skull Island experience", and of course a bunch of Pacific Rim: Uprising details including a short teaser trailer.
Well we are now only a week away from Kong: Skull Island's release date and what better way to celebrate than to release one final trailer! This one definitely shows off some big money shots so people who want to stay spoiler free may want to hold off on watching this trailer. But if you don't care...
Yesterday was a literal minefield of Giant monster news! Probably my most anticipated film of the year, 'Kong:Skull Island' got 4 30 second TV spots to really kick the marketing into high gear. These things are filled to the brim with new footage and include some of the good old universe building movies are so fond of these days. That's enough teasing! It's time to take a look and breakdown some of the cooler things seen in the Spots.
So I completely got bogged down with work back when the comic-con trailer for 'Kong: Skull Island' dropped and was unable to get a trailer breakdown out to you folks quickly enough. Luckily I can make up for it by breaking down the latest exciting trailer and giving my predictions about the film. Let's do this guys!
We here at Tokyo Lives have been waiting with bated breath for some more glimpses of Kong from the new film 'Kong: Skull Island' and it looks like today is that day. We are supposed to be getting a new trailer some time before 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' according to some deep digging into the viral site discoverskullisland.com but Entertainment Weekly just released a photo of the titular beast ahead of next week.
New York Comic Con is in full swing this weekend and while we may have gotten a 'Power Rangers' trailer, most of the giant monster world has been relatively silent. Until some people at the convention ended up receiving a mysterious poster tube with the Monarch logo on the side from some Warner Bros. employees. Monarch is of course the Government group that tracks down Megafauna like Godzilla or Kong that were introduced in 'Godzilla (2014)'. Inside of the white poster tube is a 'Kong: Skull Island' poster that seems to be a very basic teaser image showing the island from above with a little bit of writing from Monarch down near the bottom. Upon further investiagtion however of the poster conatins some awesome teasers for the shared universe with Godzilla.
Legendary and Warner Bros. Hall H Comic-con panel for everyone's favorite 100 ft tall Gorilla isn't until tomorrow but we have already gotten a pretty sweet teaser poster from the huge event. Posted on their official Facebook page, it gives a good first glimpse of the titular ape and reminds me of a certain other giant monster film's marketing. Check it out!
