It’s been a while since we heard anything regarding Kong: Skull Island. We know it’s set to hit theaters on March 10, 2017, so we’ll likely start seeing marketing kick in before too long (I’ve been saying for a while, we’ll get a trailer during SDCC this year). Other than that, all we’ve known is that it will have some elements that will allow them to eventually have the big Godzilla vs. King Kong showdown in 2020.
Obviously, in order to face off against the new Godzilla, which comes in around 350 feet or so tall, King Kong would have to be significantly larger than ever before. This left many of us long time monster movie fans wondering just how big he’d be. Today during a WB CineEurope presentation, Jordon Vogt-Roberts told us exactly how big he is in the new film (thanks to THR for the quote):
“This is going to be the biggest Kong there’s ever been,” boasted director Jordon Vogt-Roberts. “Not 10 foot or 30 foot, but a 100-foot ape.”
That’s MUCH bigger than anything we’ve seen on screen before, and will surely be interesting to see next year…But that’s still quite a bit smaller than Godzilla. Unless the director is talking about that being Kong’s size while on all fours, he’s going to have his hands full when he meets the King of all Monsters.
What do you guys think about this upscaling? Are you ready for Kong: Skull Island?
