Coming Attractions: Kong-Skull Island

Kong is back in his usual big way in “Kong: Skull Island.”

Tom Hiddleston, check. Samuel L. Jackson, check. John Goodman, maybe. John C. Reilly, uh-oh. Please tell me Will Farrell is not in “Kong: Skull Island.”

Coming to theaters March 10 is a reboot of the “Kong” series. And, it certainly appears as if the producers are going for laughs. What a shame. Can’t we do a serious Kong thriller for a change? Jack Black was horrible in the last attempt to revive the big monkey tale. We don’t need funny people with major roles in a monster movie. C’mon guys. Get serious.
