From were-rabbits to sabre-toothed bunny rabbits, Nick Park returns with a Stone Age adventure featuring characters in the world's favourite stop-motion animation style.

Soon though, one brave caveman named Dug along with his pet warthog Hognob decides he must bring his rather timid tribe together if he wants to save them from one major nemesis which threatens the peace of their lives for good; the dastardly Bronze Age. But, unexpectedly, that battle soon turns into modern day football.

Samuel L. Jackson evens the score with Tom Hiddleston.
Samuel L. Jackson has just treated Brits to a brief but hilarious impression of his 'Kong: Skull Island' co-star Tom Hiddleston, doing a British accent far more posh than what he actually sounds like. Following Tom's impression of Sam back in 2013, things are now even.
Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson have now both done impressions of each other
The 68-year-old actor found himself in the same part of Oahu, Hawaii where he previously shot 1993's 'Jurassic Park' when he did his most recent movie 'Kong: Skull Island'. That meant getting to see a lot tourists doing the Jurassic Park Location Tour, though he was mostly hidden from them in his trailer. However, he suspects they might have seen a lot of Tom Hiddleston.

Kong: Skull Island was a lot of fun for all involved.
The making of Kong: Skull Island brought the diverse cast to a lot of exciting and visually stunning places which, thankfully, presented a lot of things to keep them occupied over the five months that they were shooting. Tom Hiddleston opened up about bonding over a variety of activities.
Tom Hiddleston had fun bonding with his co-stars
When your job takes you to the most beautiful places in the world - Queensland, Australia; Oahu, Hawaii; and Northern Vietnam - you'd be a fool not to make the most of what the local environment has to offer. For Tom Hiddleston, who plays James Conrad in 'Kong: Skull Island', he got the perfect opportunities to bond with his co-stars.

Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman and Brie Larson seen together on the day that John Goodman was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame - Hollywood, California, United States - Saturday 11th March 2017
With Kong: Skull Island, Tom Hiddleston continues a barnstorming year that has included a high-profile biopic (I Saw the Light), an edgy British thriller (High-Rise) and a Golden Globe-winning TV series (The Night Manager). And he has Thor: Ragnarok coming in October.
For Tom Hiddleston, Kong was a chance to indulge in a genre he previously hasn't explored with great breadth: "As it was pitched to me, it was a big adventure film that was quite old-fashioned, but with a very fresh context," he says. "Truly, I think there's a part of all of us that wonders how we would survive on an island untouched by man. Even better, how we'd survive on an island untouched by man and inhabited by King Kong!"

Hiddleston was involved in the project early enough that he got to have input into developing his mercenary, ex-special forces character Captain James Conrad. "I wanted him to be someone who starts off in a world weary place," he says. "And his experiences on the island give him a new humility in the face of the wonder and power of the natural world."

After the success of 2014's Godzilla reboot, the Warner Bros monsters get their own franchise, continuing with this King Kong prequel. It's a ripping adventure, cleverly directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) to resemble a snarky Apocalypse Now remake with added gigantic beasts. And the eclectic cast makes sure that there's plenty of comedy, villainy and heroics to draw the audience in.
It's 1973, and Bill (John Goodman) is taking a pair of scientists (Corey Hawkins and Jing Tian) to an uncharted island to verify reports of prehistoric creatures before the Russians can get there first. En route, they stop in Vietnam to collect a mercenary adventurer (Tom Hiddleston), a photojournalist (Brie Larson) and a helicopter squadron led by Packard (Samuel L. Jackson). But their noisy arrival on the island enrages towering monkey Kong (mo-capped by Terry Notary and Toby Kebbell, who also plays a member of the team). With their choppers grounded, the main job now is to get out of here alive. And after discovering a castaway WWII pilot (John C. Reilly), they learn that Kong is actually protecting the world from far scarier monsters.
The story is told with a blast of dry humour, weaving in lots of sharp banter along with a collection of iconic 70s rock anthems. This gung-ho approach makes the movie energetically good fun, obscuring the fact that it's not particularly deep or meaningful. There are big themes gurgling away under the surface (such as the way blind militaristic action unearths dangers far worse than the perceived enemy), but these things remain subliminal, only barely visible amid the fast-paced action and big effects mayhem. That it all leads to some heavily animated monster-vs-monster destruction is hardly surprising. But when a movie is this light on its feet and so cheerfully frenetic, the audience is really only interested in hanging on for the ride.

Hiddleston was ambushed with a question about Swift while he was being interviewed about new film 'Kong: Skull Island'.
The 36 year old British actor appeared on the American breakfast TV show ‘Today’ in order to discuss and promote his new film, Kong: Skull Island, on Wednesday (March 8th). However, the discussion was soon directed towards the summer romance that Hiddleston enjoyed with Swift from May to September last year.

And it was probably the most British thing he ever heard.
Does peeing on someone really help with a jellyfish sting? Tom Hiddleston better hope so because he tested the theory on his co-star Tom Hollander when the latter got attacked by a gelatinous pest while they were at the beach. Needless to say, it didn't seem to work.
Tom Hiddleston peed on Tom Hollander's jellyfish sting
During his appearance on 'The Graham Norton Show' last night (February 16th 2017), 'The Night Manager' actor revealed how Hollander was stung (hopefully in just the leg or the foot or something) while taking a dip in the ocean, and the pair subsequently decided to test an age-old remedy - in the most British way possible.

Hiddleston opened up for the first time about his relationship with Taylor Swift, and THAT tank top.
Having been one half of the most famous celebrity coupling of 2016, Tom Hiddleston has at last broken his silence about his experience as part of the short-lived cultural phenomenon known as ‘Hiddleswift’, insisting that his romance with Taylor Swift was “real”.
‘The Night Manager’ actor, 35, had nothing but praise for pop megastar Swift, saying that her long-standing reputation as something of a man-eater is not deserved, although their relationship only lasted a little over three months.
“Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time. Of course it was real,” Hiddleston told the newest edition of GQ magazine.

His talk about his visit to South Sudan was painful to watch.
Receiving a Golden Globe Award has got to be one of the most nerve-wracking things in the world, so much so that it is probably really easy to mess up your acceptance speech. As a result, poor Tom Hiddleston has been forced to apologise for his garbled statement about South Sudan.
Tom Hiddleston has apologised for his shambolic Golden Globes speech
Well, we can't all be Meryl Streep. Tom Hiddleston stepped up to accept the award of Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series for 'The Night Manager', but ended up confusing the majority of the star-studded audience (namely Christian Slater) with a speech about his visit to war-torn South Sudan.
Hiddleston picked up the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made For Television, for ‘The Night Manager’.
Tom Hiddleston has apologised for his speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, admitting it was “inelegantly expressed”.
The actor came under fire on social media for the speech, which referenced his time in South Sudan and added that a group of Médecins Sans Frontières doctors told him they had “binge-watched” the ‘Night Manager’. After the awards the actor was criticised on social media, with some calling the speech ‘self-serving’.
