New Title and Details for Kong: Skull Island


You had to figure they’d get the main keyword in there somewhere.

In the spirit of its worldwide blockbuster Godzilla, Legendary Pictures presents a bold new take on the mythos of another iconic beast with KONG: SKULL ISLAND, which stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers and Thor series). Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) and written by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla), KONG: SKULL ISLAND will fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island. Legendary’s story honors the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but places it in an entirely new, distinct timeline.

New, distinct timeline, eh? I’m guessing that means present day, just in case they ever get the idea to have him fight Godzilla again (despite being woefully out of scale to each other in their proper movies).

The movie opens March 10, 2017.
