Bah, you had to go there didn’t you?!?……. I suppose I should back up.
After the second trailer introduced the fact that Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, Tom Hiddleston , John. C. Reilly and Brie Larson would all be sharing the screen my interest in this film rose greatly. This was going to be a hip Kong movie and some great dialogue. It was going to be funny and much better then I thought it was going to be.
This third and final trailer put me in the same spot as the first one did. Monkey see, Monkey do , monkey tell the story for you. Unless I’m missing some HUGE plot twist, I pretty much have seen Kong do everything I expected that he would do. They should have delved more into the backgrounds and interaction between the supporting characters instead of showing shot after shot of “Kong destroy”……that’s why I see it on the big screen. For that CGI.
In the vein of CGI action, I spotted what to me has become a cardinal sin in CGI action. Completely re-hashed scene from another movie …….except it’s from another King Kong movie!!!!!.Don’t believe me? Go to 2:03 – 2:05 of the below trailer. Then go to the trailer below that and go to 2:34……eerily alike. They are basically going to re- create the awesome classic T-Rex/King Kong scene they did in King Kong 2005.
I did enjoy the “music” created for this new trailer using guns being loaded. Creative, but not enough to cover the flaws for the trailer. Seeing WAY too much monkey
I’ll probably still end up going to see it in the theatre but the shines off this rose for now.
Movie is out Mar.10th in North America
