Samuel L. Jackson aims to prove that “Man is King” in Kong: Skull Island, which arrives in US Theaters nationwide tonight. While the lauded actor isn’t a staple of the horror genre by any means (although he has done his share), his inclusion in a big-budget monster movie is a major draw. Whether he’s comping on a Big Kahuna burger or getting “motherfucking snakes off this motherfucking plane”, Jackson is a pure delight in all of his incarnations.
While promoting Skull Island on Wednesday’s Late Late Show with James Corden, Jackson took time out to give the audience a retrospective of his entire acting career in a single 11-miunute skit that’s hilarious in the extreme (thanks in no small part to Corden’s participation). Enjoy the video below, and check out a trailer and synopsis for Kong: Skull Island below that.
Official Synopsis: This film fully immerses audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island.
Kong: Skull Island is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts based on a script penned by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein. In addition to Jackson, the film stars Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman, and Brie Larson.
