Tom Hiddleston Talks His Frightening New Movie, 'Kong: Skull Island'

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Kong: Skull Island debuted its first trailer in Hall H at the Warner Bros. panel, and with a cast including Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman and Samuel L. Jackson, there's certainly no shortage of talent.

Hiddleston himself told Deadline that he loved making the film. "It was a completely unique experience. Chiefly, I think, because it felt like such as heavyweight cast. There’s so many people from so many different backgrounds and with so many different skill sets. And we traveled to these extraordinary locations to the ends of the Earth where nature is at its most beautiful and terrifying.

The film is shot in places in which the audience could believe that Kong as a myth could be born, and is set in the 70s. Its time-setting is importing due to its lack of technology, among other things.

"Because it was a world where technology is not what it is now and that perhaps mankind might believe there were mysteries in the South Pacific that were still unsolved. There’s an organization in the film called Landsat, which uses satellite technology that we’re all now familiar with, with applications like Google Earth.

"But it was such an epic shoot and I know from the stuff I’ve already seen and the experience of doing it that you really feel the vividness of it. I think, you will really feel how this was not shot on a soundstage, how this was shot in the jungles and the volcanic valleys of Hawaii, Australian, and Vietnam."
