Moviegoers first encounter Skull Island in 1933: A mystical island lost in time where monsters and dinosaurs still roamed free. That’s where a small group of humans found Kong: A giant ape that has delighted audiences for more than 70 years.
And the love people have for him still grows. Since the 30s, Kong has had several movie sequels, remakes, cartoons, comics and toys. Kong has become a pop culture phenomenon with epic proportions. So it’s no wonder that there would always be more Kong movies. This new incarnation: Kong: Skull Island, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, brings Kong back to theaters and reminds us all why he is king.
