First 'Kong: Skull Island' trailer is chilling in the best way

Explosions, gunfights and tears break out on this "joyride."


The trailer begins with an ominous message: "It'll be a joyride." Yeah, right. This is a major monster movie starring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larsen -- "joyride" is the last word I'd use to describe it.

Voice-overs tout how dangerous and dumb the decision was to head out to this island, and the trailer has nearly as many explosions as a preview for a Michael Bay movie.

This reboot of "King Kong" is rumored to be the beginning of a shared monster universe, which includes Godzilla, between Warner Bros. and Legendary. And if you think Godzilla has the size advantage here, watch the trailer and think again.

"Kong: Skull Island" is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts ("The Kings of Summer") and also stars Samuel L. Jackson along with John Goodman. It's set to premiere March 10, 2017.
