The MTV Movie Awards really were the gift that kept on giving last night. The media jamboree also featured this behind-the-scenes video featurette for Kong: Skull Island. It didn’t reveal what any of the film’s true stars – the monsters – are going to look like (aside from a giant skull) but it does have Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Jason Mitchell trudging around a tropical island and enthusing loads about their characters.
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Kong: Skull Island will honour the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but will place Skull Island in an entirely new, distinct timeline. It will also be set in a shared universe with Godzilla, the idea being that after a Godzilla sequel, Kong and Godzilla will be brought together for a crossover movie, Godzilla Vs Kong, in 2020.
Kong: Skull Island is released in the UK on 10 March 2017.
