Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of next year’s King Kong reboot, Kong: Skull Island, has promised big things for the iconic character.
And, of course, none bigger than the character himself.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Vogt-Roberts told compared his Kong to the Kongs that have gone before.
Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.
Peter Jackson’s Kong was around 25 feet. The ‘33 Kong ranged between 25 feet and 50 feet, I want to say he was 50-plus feet when he was on the Empire State Building. He varied in size dramatically! The ’70s Kong was somewhere between them.
And just to show us how big his Kong is, the director released a picture of Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson amid the ruins of a massive creature — either King Kong, one of his dead buddies, or another giant ape whom Kong killed. We have a clear shot of its skull which, laying on its side is much taller than Hiddleston and Larson.
According to the film’s synopsis, the Hiddleston and Larson are ‘explorers who encounter a gigantic ape and other creatures on a mysterious island.’
Kong: Skull Island is set to be released on March 10, 2017.SuperFable
