Opening This Weekend

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island, in theaters this weekend, isn’t like the Kong films of 1976 and 2005 that largely disapointed theater-goers. Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson and Brie Larson star in this film from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Set in 1973 at the tail end of the Vietnam War, Hiddleston is a former British SAS officer sent to explore Skull Island and the mysteries it promises. Brie Larson is “anti-war photographer” Mason Weaver along for the adventure.

St. Louis native John Goodman plays a pivitol role in the film as Tom Randa. Randa sets up the expedition to Skull Island. Goodman has been a lifelong fan of King Kong since seeing the original 1933 film when he was just 10 years old.

Positive reviews, like this one from Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune, are a welcome sight for fans of the giant ape.  Skull Island is the second film in the MonsterVerse from Legendary and brings us closer to 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong.

Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $48.6 million for Kong: Skull Island.
