“Kong: Skull Island,” an origin story about cinema’s most famous ape, will offer a fresh take on a familiar tale, star Tom Hiddleston promised.
For one thing, the original King Kong film’s period setting has been scrapped.
That's for the better. A modern-day King Kong movie has so much more you could work with, particularly with how much better the humans can fight back. A more interesting battle for sure.
I don't know, I feel like Kong films shouldn't take place in the present. There's literally no way humans could possibly lose unless they're written to act stupid. He's just a big gorilla.
