NYCC ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Poster Holds Secret Messages

Kong: Skull Island

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.

    Well, we have our first Godzilla connection.

    • Do we? I felt that picture was a bit of a stretch to say it had anything to do with Godzilla.

        Wasn’t Monarch the name of the organisation who were studying the MUTOs and Godzilla in the 2014 film?

        • Sastrei

          Yup. The Monarch name and logo makes the connection rock solid between Legendary Godzilla and Legendary Kong.

      • Stitch_101

        Dude… Monarch. The organization name and logo appear in the posters “black light” hidden message. Monarch is the organization that Watanabe’s character worked for in researching and tracking Godzilla in the 2014 film. So no it’s not a stretch. It plan fact.

        • Yea no sorry. I didn’t think thats what you were posting about I thought you were posting about the “The scales almost look like the back of Godzilla’s neck!” part attached to one of the pictures. Because I don’t see a damn thing that resembles Godzillas neck in any of these pictures. But the Monarch is a dead give away. Miscommunication on both ends.

    “Adolescent Super Species.” Looks like maybe the rumors/theories were true and the Kong in this film won’t be fully grown, leading to a Godzilla-sized adult Kong later;.

  • This is amazing. What a great way to create some hype & excitement for this great looking moving.

      “Amazing”?

      • Yeah, clearly you think otherwise. Feel free to share your thoughts.
