Dinner and a movie? How about milkshake and a movie?!
Just yesterday we were talking about the King Kong Twinkies that were released in conjunction with Peter Jackson’s 2005 film, which single-handedly paved the way for the year-round return of Hostess’ banana Twinkies. Naturally, being a big ole ape and all, Kong loves his bananas (he’d need to consume an estimated 400,000 of them a day in order to make his massive stomach happy!), so that makes it pretty easy for companies to whip up Kong-inspired food treats. And following in the footsteps of Hostess, burger chain Johnny Rockets has done just that this month.
For a limited time only, the chain is offering not one but two different Kong: Skull Island milkshakes, which you’d better act fast if you want to taste – after all, the movie hits theaters TONIGHT in most areas. Both shakes, naturally, have a banana theme: you can choose between the Peanut Butter Banana Shake and the Chocolate Banana Shake… or why not just get both?!
In addition to the shakes, several of the standard menu items can be made “Kong-Sized” at your request. Essentially, for example, they’ll add another patty to your bacon cheeseburger.
How do the milkshakes taste? Read a humorous review over on Dinosaur Dracula!
In the film, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts…
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.
