This ‘Skull Island’ Poster Weirdly Reminds Me of Peter Jackson’s ‘King Kong’



When a studio remakes a film, isn’t the reason that the predecessor is dated is some way, shape or form? I mean, we all want to forget Peter Jackson’s King Kong, yet the below UK quad for Kong: Skull Island reminds me of the above scene in which Naomi Watts comes face-to-face with the ape.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts told us how this isn’t going to be the same “love” story as all previous Kong films, yet the new one-sheet for Kong: Skull Island is exactly that. I want Apocalypse Now meets King Kong, not this again…


Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ new origin film stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Wilkinson, Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, Thomas Mann and John Ortiz.

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.

Skull Island opens in theaters on March 10th, 2017, followed by Godzilla 2, which is being directed by Michael Dougherty, on March 22, 2019, and Godzilla vs. Kong on May 29, 2020.
