Its no news that Legendary Entertainment launched the MonsterVerse, a cinematic universe of iconic movie monsters in film. As part of its eventual Godzilla vs. King Kong endgame, the Kong franchise gets a modern reboot starting with an origins story – Kong: Skull Island.

A compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (“The Kings of Summer”), the film tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful.  Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature.  As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
