The first footage of Hollywood’s King Kong reboot "Skull Island” was released last weekend during the MTV Movie Awards, showing the star-studded cast at a beautiful set in Vietnam. 
The video features Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell discussing plot details.
“The film is about a group of explorers who set off on an adventure to a previously uncharted island,” Larson, who plays a photojournalist, said.
Hiddleston, who stars as a former British Special Air Service officer, said: “They get to this island and discover that all is not quite as it first appears, and there are strange new creatures, mythic beasts that come into the midst, and they have to get off the island alive.”
Mitchell plays a helicopter pilot in the movie, which is set in the Vietnam War era.
Of course there is no sight of the King yet.
The reboot, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and centered on Kong's origins, filmed in Vietnam for five weeks in February and March.
Locations included the famous cave system Phong Nha-Ke Bang in the central province of Quang Binh, before moving to Trang An-Tam Coc, a complex of mountains and rivers in the northern province of Ninh Binh, and Ha Long Bay.
