Friday is here and an end to a very long week for all concerned what with both the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona as well as the Game Developer Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. It was a big week, and so we’re starting off today with an equally big video.
The video in question is a promotional trailer in 360 degrees (and created in partnership by Legendary VR and ILMxLAB) for forthcoming film Kong: Skull Island, which will star the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and John C. Reilly. However the character we’re going to be hearing from in this experience called KONG VR: Destination Skull Island (as we set off on a helicopter trip above the jungle) is that of Lt. Colonel Packard. A man who is played in the film by the one and only Samuel L. Jackson. Now, when you’re flying the last thing you really want is someone telling a flying-related story of death by misadventure. But ignoring this Packard narrates to you part of the Greek fable of Icarus. Naturally the fates conspire at that point for your flight to take a turn for the worse as you get up close and personal with one of Skull Island’s inhabitants.
And he isn’t particularly happy to see you…
VRFocus is back with another Life In 360° on Monday.
