The first trailer for “Kong: Skull Island” debuted today at Comic-Con in San Diego. We don’t see much of Kong himself, but we do see the massive destruction he’s capable of in this reboot that’s set in the ’70s.

Tom Hiddleston stars as an explorer who, along with  war photographer (Brie Larson), travels with a military group on Skull Island, supposedly to map the area for NASA. When people start dying, it’s clear there’s a lot they haven’t been told.

This Kong will be the biggest yet, director Jordan Vogt- Roberts recently told THR, saying, “This is going to be the biggest Kong there’s ever been. Not 10 foot or 30 foot, but a 100-foot ape.”

While Kong himself will be CG, the locations are not. “There’s so much CG in movies these days, audiences can tell when they’re fake,” says Vogt-Roberts of why the film was shot in Vietnam, Hawaii and Australia, according to Time.

That didn’t make for a very comfortable shoot. “In the swamps in Vietnam we were up to our waist in swamp water getting to know each other very well, and there are things that can crawl into warm spaces,” said Hiddleston.

“Kong: Skull Island,” which co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman, opens March 10, 2017
