The film is set in the 1970s, when a team of explorers and soldiers are brought together to go deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean. What they don’t know is that the island is home to monsters, including the mythic Kong, a gigantic gorilla and king of the island.

The Trials of Childhood
Larson has shown her penchant for dramatic roles, and she gets the opportunity to wow audiences once more in her upcoming film, The Glass Castle. The Glass Castle is an upcoming drama based on Jeanette Walls’ memoir of the same name.

Jackson, Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford, Karan Soni, and Hamish Linklater.
