At this past weekend’s New York City Comic Con, a new poster for the upcoming adventure thriller Kong: Skull Island was unveiled and handed out to random people. The poster, which you can see below (courtesy of Reel News Hawaii), was an aerial shot of Skull Island with a grid structure laid over top, like some sort of official map. Towards the bottom of the map was a “handwritten” statement, which read, “His mouth is fire; his roar the floodwater; his breath is death. Enlil made him guardian of the Cedar Forest, To frighten off the mortal who would venture there. BUT WHO WOULD VENTURE THERE?”
Now, that alone is pretty cool as it makes it feel like this poster is some kind of secret map that Nathan Drake would randomly find in his adventures. However, it turns out that the poster bears even more secrets than previously thought and it takes some special equipment to unveil it all.
With the use of a blacklight, the poster suddenly reveals multiple hidden messages, which were collected by SciFied. The images reveal a hidden skull in the Western portion of the island, company logos and information, the location of Kong itself, and more. It’s an incredibly cool trick and I bet that everyone who has one of these posters is feeling pretty lucky right about now!
In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific – as beautiful as it is treacherous – unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong. It features Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Wilkinson, Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Thomas Mann and John Ortiz.
Kong: Skull Island opens in theaters on March 10th, 2017, followed by Godzilla 2 on March 22, 2019, and Godzilla vs. Kong on May 29, 2020.
