In the movie Kong Skull Island, a $200 million extravaganza, a team of explorers and soldiers travel to an uncharted island in the Pacific, unaware that they are crossing into the domain of monsters, including the mythic Kong.
Kong Skull Island is the first film Brie Larson stars in since her Oscar winning role in the 2015 film Room. Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston costar.
The director of this latest King Kong movie, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, has only one other theatrical release to his credit, the 2013 film festival hit The Kings Of Summer.
The last time King Kong appeared on big screens was in the 2005 Peter Jackson film King Kong, which took in a modest but not gorilla size $218,080,025 at the U.S. box office.
