A brand new trailer for Kong: Skull Island has been released, and a new poster.

Directed and written by Marc Abraham, the film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Cherry Jones, Bradley Whitford, Maddie Hasson, Wrenn Schmidt.

Tom Hiddleston’s butt may have its own hashtag, #Hiddlesbum, but the actor doesn’t strip down just so his impressive backside can trend on social media.
In his new indie High-Rise, he plays a doctor who moves into an apartment building that turns out to be full of all sorts of crazy neighbors and shenanigans. “He moves into the building to get away from the entanglements of real life,” Hiddleston told E! News at the Tribeca Film Festival. “He’s excited by the anonymity of the building.”
But he learns his privacy isn’t so sacred when a neighbor (Sienna Miller) spies him sunbathing in the nude. And yes, that’s when we get a peek at Tom’s buttocks.
The scene is actually in the 1975 novel that the movie is based on, High-Rise by J.G. Ballard. “And [director] Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump, the screenwriter, thought it was very important to do so I had not problem doing it,” Hiddleston said.
Miller laughed when we told her about #Hiddlesbum. “That’s so funny,” she said.
But she admits that nudity on camera is never comfortable for most actors. “[Tom] doesn’t love it but he’s also very good at his job and professional so if the script calls for it, he will get his Hiddlesbum out,” Miller explained.
High-Rise is available on VOD, iTunes, and Amazon Video on April 28 followed by a theatrical release on May 13.
Hiddleston was teased about #Hiddlesbum while appearing late last month on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert while talking about him dropping his pants on his new AMC series The Night Manager.
Hiddleston told Colbert that he’s OK with nudity because he “trained” for it while studying acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. “There’s no class in #Hiddlesbum at RADA,” he joked. “Actually…there’s always a moment in training where you’re given a role where you have to be comfortable with nakedness. I think they see it as part of the training.”
Tom Hiddleston talks about the movie:
It’s been eleven years since Peter Jackson’s King Kong, and in Hollywood years that’s far too long for us to go without a reboot. Next out of the gate is Kong: Skull Island, that plans to kickstart a brand new franchise centring on the chest-beating simian. Initially it was set to be a prequel to the 1933 original but those plans were scuppered in favor of something different.
While we’re still relatively in the dark about its plot, former cast member JK Simmons let slip that certain scenes were set in the 1970s – which would definitely be considered ‘different’ in Kong lore. If that’s still the case, it’s unconfirmed but according to Tom Hiddleston, who’s playing an unknown lead role, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. “I don’t want to spoil too much,” he tells EW, “But it’s a whole new reconception of the mythology. It essentially follows a group of disparate travelers and explorers and soldiers who travel to an undiscovered island in the South Pacific ”
Okay, so far, so same…
“And it’s set in a time period where you could conceive that there are still undiscovered places on the Earth. What they find on the island is surprising, and then every character has a very different response to it. It’s going to be spectacular and epic, but also the human drama is kind of interesting as well.”
Alright, now it sounds as if there’s no chance this is set in the 1970s. It’s still encouraging to hear that it’s going to be “spectacular” and “epic” because who would want a Kong movie that’s a quiet character drama?
Well, one thing’s for sure: Legendary Pictures plans to sync this new King Kong franchise with its other monster franchise Godzilla in the near future. That 2014 reboot was set in the present day so it’s anybody’s guess how this pair will meet. Might there be time travel involved? No, no, they wouldn’t do that. Would they?
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Toby Kebbell, Tom Wilkinson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly, Kong: Skull Island opens in the UK and US on March 10, 2017.
