The fan reaction to that surprise was a significant factor in Legendary and Warner Bros.' decision to greenlight the film, and during the Legendary panel at Comic-Con earlier today, the studio didn't leave without one more surprise.
Some fans were expecting a peek at Jurassic World, though given that Legendary isn't the primary studio on that film it seemed unlikely. Instead, we were shown an ominous teaser that concluded with the reveal of King Kong himself and the title Skull Island, which the studio intends to release in theaters on November 4, 2016. More after the jump.
Now that Legendary is housed at Universal Pictures—home of the monsters—it appears that CEO Thomas Tull is keen on reviving the classic ape King Kong. The Skull Island teaser was incredibly brief, but it opened with a pan over a violent, storm-entrenched ocean while an ominous passage was read through narration. The camera then found an isolated island, also entrenched in storm, and as we crossed through the untouched trees, bypassed swinging monkeys, and flew with wild birds, we finally came upon Kong himself standing tall and pounding his chest.
