This coming March, Legendary Pictures is set to release an all-new reimagining of King Kong with Skull Island. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts takes us back to the 1970’s when a team of explorers is stranded on Skull Island. The film is said to take influence from the original 1933 classic, featuring a much more monstrous take on the iconic gorilla-like creature than recent versions.
A new poster was released this morning via the film’s official Instagram account which features Brie Larson up against Kong himself with the tagline “All Hail The King”. The captain also reads:
“Welcome to Skull Island, where Kong is King.”
UPDATE: Legendary has also released another poster via Twitter which features the titular ape and the unlucky crew of explorers as they arrive on Skull Island via helicopter to meet the King himself.
