Enter the boneyard in this new image from Kong: Skull Island

There's a lot of mystery surrounding KONG: SKULL ISLAND. How does this movie relate to the other Kong films? How does it fit in with Gareth Edwards GODZILLA movie? Why does it take place in the '70s? All these and more will be answered in due time, and a piece of that puzzle has to do with a new image released by Entertainment Weekly. It's in the usual resolution you can expect from them, so don't bother reaching for your glasses. Still, it's a cool picture none the less and accompanied by some words from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

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.

It's worth noting that Jordan also said that we'll see Kong when the trailer hits. With SDCC right around the corner, I have a feeling we'll be seeing the giant ape in action sooner rather than later. This isn't a movie that's on the public's radar yet, but I guarantee you, once that trailer starts making the rounds, people will be talking about it. We'll definitely have more to say on KONG: SKULL ISLAND in the future!

KONG: SKULL ISLAND is scheduled to hit theaters on March 10, 2017.
