There have been some beautiful posters for future features coming out of SDCC this week, most notably the stunning Wonder Woman one-sheet delivered the day before the new trailer dropped yesterday.  But for my money, this masterful, atmospheric Kong: Skull Island teaser strikes my geek sweet spot in all the right places.  A green smoke flare illuminates the monstrous features of Kong, waking the scowling beast who emerges from the misty jungle darkness in all his royal immensity.   A new trailer for the film was served up after the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation Saturday afternoon, highlighting the epic scale of the $200 million production. 

Have a look at this wild new poster and tell us if you're beating your chest over Legendary's killer Kong reboot.

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and starring Tom Hiddleston, Toby Kebbell, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, Kong: Skull Island thunders into theaters on March 10, 2017.
