"Ancient species owned this Earth long before mankind. And if we keep our heads buried in the sand they will take it back."
The first clip from Kong: Skull Island has been unleashed (via the good folks at Yahoo! Movies), dropping more clues as to the film's ties to another world-famous cinematic monster.
The short scene features a tense chat between Samuel L. Jackson's Lieutenant Colonel Packard and John Goodman's Bill Randa. Packard pulls a gun on Randa, demanding answers about their presence on Skull Island. (Guys. If we've learned anything from Samuel L. Jackson's many, many movies over the years, it's that you don't mess with the guy.)
Seems like Randa gets the memo because he starts by telling Packard that "monsters exist," followed by the revelation that — wait for it — he's working for Monarch, the secret scientific organization first introduced in Legendary Pictures' Godzilla (2014)! Monarch specializes in hunting Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms (M.U.T.O.), and you know which other gigantic monster answers to that call, right? (Hint: They tried to nuke it in 1954.)
Kong: Skull Island will open in theaters on March 10. Check out the clip and let us know what you think.
