‘Kong: Skull Island’ SFX Magazine Cover Shows Us One Angry Ape

Officially TitledThe King is evidently displeased with his subjects in Kong: Skull Island. The magazine SFX shows a furious-looking Eighth Wonder Of The World on the cover of their next issue.

There’s really not too much to say here other than to point out that this version of Kong is demonstrably the largest one seen in an American-made movie – only the version made by Godzilla creator Toho stands taller. The film, set in the 1970s, has the following premise:

A team of explorers and soldiers travel to an uncharted island in the Pacific, unaware that they are crossing into the domain of monsters, including the mythic Kong.

Kong: Skull Island will be released on March 10, 2017. The film revolves around a new take on the classic mythology, featuring visual aesthetics inspired by the Vietnam War and monster-against-monster battles of titanic proportions. The film features an all-star cast of actors, including Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Toby Kebbell, and John C. Reilly. It is the second installment in Warner Brothers and Legendary’s “MonsterVerse” and a prequel to 2014’s Godzilla remake, and is set to be followed by both a sequel (Godzilla: King Of Monsters) on March 22, 2019 and a team-up (Godzilla VS Kong) on May 29, 2020.
