The first poster of Tom Hiddleston?s forthcoming action/adventure fantasy Kong: Skull Island was revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
The poster finally unveils the mega monster that film director Jordan Vogt-Roberts says is the biggest King Kong recreation ever. The photo shows a thrilled view of a soldier who is seen standing atop a giant skull, staring at the beast, that emerges out from dark and mist.
Earlier this week, official Kong: Skull Island Twitter account had revealed a motion poster for the movie, promising full reveal of the great ape during the film’s SDCC 2016 panel. In the 15-second clip a person a soldier holds a smoke grenade atop the by-now-familiar gargantuan gorilla skull. It ended with the ominous words ?Kong Is Coming.?
Many had since expected a full length trailer for the movie but the new poster all the same is pretty exciting. Warner Bros. had also shared the first picture from the film that showed Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson exploring a boneyard amidst the ruins of a massive creature.
With such a huge creature Legendary Pictures? reboot of the King Kong is expected to set the ground for the upcoming Godzilla vs Kong?film series. Skull Island will serve as second installment of monster franchise that began with Godzilla reboot in 2014 to be followed by Godzilla 2 (2019) and Godzilla vs. Kong (2020).
Director Vogt-Roberts, who?s helming the movie had earlier in an interview with EW said that ape is far biggest of all times: ?From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore. Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you?ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.
Peter Jackson?s Kong was around 25 feet. The ?33 Kong ranged between 25 feet and 50 feet, I want to say he was 50-plus feet when he was on the Empire State Building. He varied in size dramatically! The ?70s Kong was somewhere between them.?
The plot details of the movie are still under wraps but what is known is movie is set in 1970s with Hiddleston playing an ex-British SAS tracker while Larson is a war photographer, ?who?s seen all sorts of terrible, terrible things.? The movie begins when a NASA satellite program mapping the world from space discovers an unknown island, that leads a team of explorers to investigate.
Kong: Skull Island opens in movie theaters on March 10, 2017.
