Kong: Skull Island Box Office Tracking Suggests A Hit


The group, along with an anti-war photojournalist Mason Weaver (Brie Larson), board a vessel to the island.

But, it is also, if we're honest, a little bit genius too. I really found the direction and special effects to be fantastic in this movie. But these two are absolutely wasted as expensive eye candy. Samuel L. Jackson's Col. Packard isn't one she'd be willing to lose, though.

Brazilian to miss Burnley clash: Dent to Liverpool's top four hopes?
Since then they've drawn one and lost eight of their nine visits there in all competitions, scoring once and conceding 19 goals. In five Premier League starts he has averaged 4.6 tackles per match, considerably more than any other player in Dyche's squad.

But like the expedition it loses its way on the island. He takes this Kong business very personally, which sets up a showdown that viewers can see from miles away.

In the second part of the movie, the island's gorgeous views and the intense battle scenes manage to keep the audiences entertained. The actors mostly seem to be playing for a paycheck. Unlike so many sequels/remakes, it's not hard to think of a justification for yet another round with King Kong: CGI technology is much better than it was even a decade ago, when Peter Jackson's bloated but often thrilling "King Kong" hit screens. The ape is the headliner and he doesn't disappoint. Skull Island is appropriately odd and scary, with massive bugs attacking from the sky and creatures that you don't realize look exactly like the massive tree you're resting your head on until it's nearly too late.
