It is curious that director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, whose 2013 debut was Kings of Summer, has moved from an independent coming-of-age comedy to yet another King Kong movie. It’s an odd transition. Nevertheless, the cast — Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleseton, John Goodman, Sam Jackson — is great, but I’m not sure anyone was really aching for another King Kong film.
The trailer looks … like a Godzilla movie set in Jurassic Park. I’m sure it’ll put up huge numbers internationally, but it’s not a particularly compelling movie.
