Get Up Close and Personal With the Monsters of ‘Kong: Skull Island’



Kong may be king of Skull Island, but he’s not the only monster that calls it home.

This weekend’s Kong: Skull Island (read our review), directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, promises to be a full-on monster mash that’ll usher in an early start to the summer movie season, and I personally can’t wait to see the big guy do battle with, well, other really big guys. Want to meet all the Skull Island monsters before the weekend? We’ve got you covered.

The new website Discover Skull Island was just launched in conjunction with the titular locale being added to Google Maps, and it’s got a pretty cool little feature that provides bios for each of the monsters. The bios include sizes, names, and even threat analyses for the likes of Mother Longlegs, Leafwing, Mire Squid, Psychovulture, Sker Buffalo, and Spore Mantis.

Yeah. This movie is going to rock. Check out the bio cards below.

Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, and Eugene Cordero star.

In KONG: SKULL ISLAND, 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.

The film was scripted by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy, and Derek Connolly.

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.
