KONG: SKULL ISLAND Reveals APOCALYPSE NOW-Esque IMAX Poster

Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts recently spoke with The Nerdist about the upcoming blockbuster epic, discussing how it will touch upon Kong's origins, as well as creating "a new mythology".

The promo poster looks very similar to the Apocalypse Now! classic, and was dropped by Entertainment Weekly just yesterday. There's a new (poster) king in town, and his name is Kong. The poster features a big Kong's face over-layering a background photo which bears a strong resemblance to the 1979 movie's poster. Of late, most action movie posters kinda all look the same, with some notable exceptions. The connection speculation between the monsters first sparked after a Comic-Con poster, which hinted at the link between those Legendary Pictures' giant creatures, emerged.

Kong: Skull Island will hit theaters on March 10, 2017. Tom Hiddleston stars as former British SAS officer Capt. James Conrad (see what they did there?) with Oscar-winner Brie Larson (Room) playing a photojournalist and peace activist named Weaver. "You have a team of people brought together, some of whom are military-seemingly just for assistance through the survey, although we come to understand that there was some suspicion that there may be something [at Skull Island] that you would need a military force for".

Skull Island is set in the 1970s and follows a group of scientists, soldiers and adventurers who unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
