Check out the first look at Tom Hiddleston in Kong: Skull Island


It may seem that Tom Hiddleston is Taylor Swift's professional boyfriend so it's nice to be reminded that he can be a brilliant film star too.

The first picture from his new blockbuster Kong: Skull Island is here and it looks pretty exciting.

The pic shows gun-toting Tom with his Oscar-winning co-star Brie Larson in front of an alarmingly large skull.

Tom plays an ex-SAS tracker in the film, while Brie plays a war photographer.

Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has told Entertainment Weekly: "We're very explicitly not telling the beauty and the beast story. From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore.

"Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you've seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island."

The film also stars Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman and John C Reilly.

It will hit UK cinemas next year.
