IMAX Featurette For Kong: Skull Island Awakens The Great Ape


It’s been dubbed the place where myth and science meet, and with today’s all-new IMAX Featurette for Kong: Skull Island, you’ll be able to take a trip into the dark corners of the titular, primordial isle. Fair warning: Kong isn’t the only gargantuan creature that resides on the island.

For in Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ lavish reimagining, Skull Island is also home to all kinds of weird and wonderful creatures, from impossibly big spiders to the Skull Crawlers, a prehistoric species that looks set to be one of, if not the primary monster adversary for Kong. Yes, there are many more MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Objects) lurking in the shadows, forcing John Goodman’s mysterious Monarch operative Bill Randa to go to extraordinary lengths if he’s to make it off Skull Island with proof that, yes, monsters exist. And they’re very, very big.

On the topic of otherworldly critters, the fact that Kong: Skull Island will come packing a post-credits scene indicates that Legendary and Warner Bros. are poised to use Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ reboot – and that’s reboot, not origin story – to tie their wildly ambitious MonsterVerse closer together. So far, Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan have all been name-dropped as potential suspects, and if nothing else, those rumors hint that Legendary and WB have been given full access to Toho Co.’s precious vault of iconic monsters. Godzilla’s second coming isn’t going to tease itself now, is it?

Kong: Skull Island opens on March 10th. The spectacle doesn’t end there, though, what with Godzilla: King of the Monsters (March 22nd, 2019) and Godzilla Vs. Kong (2020) also looming on the horizon. We know that the former will be directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus), while Legendary and Warner Bros. have so far remained tight-lipped about the latter. Perhaps we’ll have a better sense of where the duo’s MonsterVerse is headed in a few weeks’ time?
