27-year old Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson was in Beijing last night, promoting her new film "Kong: Skull Island".

In the King Kong reboot, Larson portrays a photojournalist investigating the island's peculiar seismic activity.

She says while the basis of the film itself dates back to the early days of cinema, the message in it remains the same.

"Kong is a huge part of the mythology of cinema; it tells an incredible story that is really timely dealing with the issues that are still dealing with today when it comes to man VS nature. So if we want to talk about agriculture or war, these huge things that we're still grappling with human beings and trying to find a way, instead of fighting with something, to actually work with it. And I think this is such a great way of telling that story in a way that's still fun, entertaining and interesting to watch."

The film also stars Chinese actress Jing Tian, who was also out on Thursday for the film's premier.

"Kong: Skull Island" is due to open across China on Friday of next week.
