Today was a big day for Kong: Skull Island as Entertainment Weekly chatted with director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts and also revealed the first clear picture of King Kong.
When asked about the reveal of the character in the movie, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts said “Kong traditionally does not show up in these movies until very, very late, and the monster traditionally does not show up until very, very late in a monster movie, so a lot of these movies tend to have this structure that’s a bit of a slow burn. Something about this movie made me want to reject that and play a very, very different game.”
Kong: Skull Island boasts an incredibly talented group of actors that worked on the film which including Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, and John C. Reilly. Longtime stunt coordinator/motion capture performer Terry Notary performed as Kong for the film.
Set in the 1970s, the film focuses on a group of explorers who cross paths with the great ape, Kong.
Kong: Skull Island debuts in theaters March 10th.
