"Kong: Skull Island" tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong. The film headlines Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell and John C. Reilly.
With "Kong: Skull Island" —and Godzilla before it — the producing team is laying the foundation for a vast, shared universe of monsters, one grounded in our own world but heightened to allow for the existence of MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms. But to do it justice meant not only orchestrating the collision of two longstanding cinematic mythologies but merging two distinct timelines. The key came in the form of a game-changing idea from Vogt-Roberts. Producer Alex Garcia reveals, “The linchpin of our Godzilla story is the notion that the 1954 nuclear tests weren’t tests; the government was actually trying to kill something. Jordan came in the door with the idea of setting the film in the 1970s, and that immediately lit up our imaginations. Not only did the `70s jibe with the MonsterVerse, it’s a rich period to explore thematically and allowed us to bring ultra-real warfare and giant monsters together within the same movie”. The film also hints at a post-credits scene that will reveal more.
Opening across the Philippines in 2D, 3D in select theaters, and IMAX beginning March 9, 2017 at 10AM. "Kong: Skull Island" is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
