Get your first clear look at Skull Island's King Kong


KONG: SKULL ISLAND will transport audiences back to the 1970s when the Vietnam War was winding down. A British tracker (Tom Hiddleston) finds himself joining a group of soldiers and a photojournalist (Brie Larson) to uncover the secrets of Skull Island. Together, the group discovers threats that are much larger than they could have ever imagined. We've seen glimpses of the proverbial King in the teaser trailer but now Entertainment Weekly has the first real look at the massive monkey. Whip out your reading glasses, as they've uploaded the image in true EW resolution!

Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts on this moment in the film:

That sequence comes from a point in the movie where you’re not quite sure who Kong is, what his purpose is, how people should be perceiving him. Through the folly of man, where our initial instinct is to attack anything that is not a known quantity, both sides jump the gun, Kong and the humans, and it kicks off a relatively messy engagement. At first, of course you’re going to perceive something like that as a terrible threat and monster — the physicality of him alone.

A huge part of the movie was designing him and creating the creature so that when you did see him it sort of short circuited your brain and was divisive to people, where certain people immediately say ‘That’s a threat,’ certain people immediately say, ‘That’s a God,’ certain people immediately say, ‘That’s a savior.’ Visually and instantly, what happens when you see this thing towering over you and what is your sort of emotional and intellectual response?

Much like Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA, SKULL ISLAND is packing some serious style! That's where the similarities end, however, as director Vogt-Roberts looks to bring a much more adventurous picture our way. We here at JoBlo will have A LOT more to bring you in the future regarding SKULL ISLAND, but it's safe to say that this will be one of the biggest films to look out for come 2017!

KONG: SKULL ISLAND will open in theaters on March 10, 2017.
