/Film brings us a few new TV spots for Legendary Pictures' "Kong: Skull Island." According to Writer Jack Giroux, the spot we've highlighted "features a reference to Godzilla, who Kong will face off against in Legendary Pictures’ upcoming Godzilla vs. King Kong movie (due out in 2020). When Bill Randa (John Goodman) mentions the nuclear tests in 1954, that’s a nod to Godzilla‘s opening, which showed bombs meant to kill Godzilla going off and not doing their job." You can check out the first of these TV spots after the jump. You can go here to see the rest of the spots.
Here's the official synopsis:
