John C. Godzilla and the film King Kong Escapes , the comparable islands are called "Farou Island" and "Mondo Island", respectively. Kong plays a similar role in these islands as the god-like being of the land, a role he plays in all versions of the King Kong story.
Skull Island's origins are unknown, but Kong appears to be the only giant gorilla known to exist on the island. However, the remake shows other skeletons of Kong-sized gorillas, indicating that there was once a group of such creatures of an unknown number living on the island.
Additionally, 's Kong: Skull Island depicts the skeletons of Kong's parents. There is a distinctive rocky knoll in the center of the island that is shaped like a human skull , which is referred to as "Skull Mountain".
According to the first film, the captain of a Norwegian barque discovered a canoe blown off course with only one native left alive.
Before the native died, the captain of the barque was able to get a rough location of the island and some details on it, including its most distinctive feature - a huge wall built by the ancestors of the natives back when they had high civilization.
When the protagonists of the picture arrive at the island and examine it they find, in addition to the expected superstitious natives, prehistoric creatures of all sorts and one extremely large ape , known by those on the island as " Kong ".
Other than being the descendants of a high civilization, the ancestry of the natives is never explained.
In the sequel film The Son of Kong , Carl Denham returns to Skull Island when there was a mention of some treasure that was hidden there. He also encounters a large white gorilla who is the son of King Kong.
Skull Island sinks into the sea during a powerful earthquake. Kong's son drowns while holding Carl Denham above the water. Denham survives unscathed, while the treasure is claimed by him and the other three survivors.
The term "Skull Island" is never used in the original films. In King Kong , only "Skull Mountain" is named, while in the sequel Son of Kong , its simply referred to as "Kong's island".
In the novelization of King Kong by Delos Lovelace, it is called "Skull Mountain Island", but RKO referred to it as "Skull Island" in some of their publicity materials.
In the 's King Kong , Skull Island is mentioned as being "the beach of the skull". It is located somewhere in Indian Ocean south of Java , covered by a permanent cloud bank.
Various people are said to have visited the island through the centuries but returned with no clear proof. By the s, it is an urban legend whose only evidence is in government secret files.
It is also revealed to have a huge deposit of oil, which led a greedy oil company executive to go in search of it. Besides featuring a primitive native tribe most seem to be of West African ancestry and the giant, bipedal gorilla Kong, there is also a giant snake who appeared in Kong's lair and wanted to kill him and Dwan, but it was killed by the former.
In sequel film King Kong Lives , Skull Island does not appear but it was mentioned by adventurer Hank Mitchell mistakenly calling it Kong Island who believed that the islands Borneo and Skull Island were once a part of the same landmass in the past.
The fate of this incarnation is unknown. In Kong: The Animated Series , the island was named Kong Island. Unlike previous incarnations, Kong Island was situated in the infamous Bermuda Triangle , not the Indian Ocean.
Although various prehistoric creatures are seen living there, Kong Island also contains some ruins where one of them serves as the prison of the demon Chiros.
It is also where Jason Jenkins and his grandmother Dr. Lorna Jenkins also live along with Jason's friend Tan. Another human inhabitant is Lua, the sole survivor of the native people of the island and a female shaman.
A illustrated novel that serves as both prequel and sequel of the original "King Kong" story, conceived by Merian C.
Cooper and novelized by Delos Lovelace in , and authorized by the Cooper family. His initial influence was Apocalypse Now , revealing,. That's obviously a war movie, but I liked the idea of people moving upriver to face a misunderstood force that they think of as a villain, but ultimately they come to realize is much more complicated.
Before Vogt-Roberts signed on as director, Borenstein thought of having the film begin during the Vietnam War and jump forward to the present day.
After Legendary rejected it, Borenstein instead had the film take place before the original King Kong film in during World War I while keeping the Apocalypse Now concept.
The premise had Tom Hiddleston's character leading a rescue team to Skull Island to find his missing brother, who got stranded there while searching for a "Titan Serum" believed to cure all illnesses.
After this, Borenstein again retooled the story to take place in the present day. After Jordan Vogt-Roberts joined the project, he met with Borenstein.
Liking the Apocalypse Now concept, Vogt-Roberts pitched it to Legendary with the story taking place at the end of the Vietnam War, which the studio accepted.
There are pieces of my work in there as well as the work of the other two writers and John Gatins, who was credited for story. Everybody had a really good hand in it.
Gilroy revealed that many backstories and character moments were dropped from his draft, specifically for Mason Weaver and James Conrad's characters, feeling that the film had room to explore them.
Gilroy disclosed,. She didn't believe in anything — so the first time she saw Kong, it was like an awakening. She comes [back to life].
Tom [Hiddleston]'s character was a guy whose unit had been attacked by a big monster out of Vietnam — so he was in search of this thing. Instead of them approaching him at the bar and giving him a job, I had him like, 'I want on board.
Despite these ideas being dropped, Gilroy felt the film turned out to be a "good movie" regardless. Director Vogt-Roberts stated that he wanted Kong to look iconic and straightforward enough that a third-grader could draw him, and the image would still be recognizable.
I think there are very modern elements to him, yet hopefully, he feels very timeless at the same time. Hayao Miyazaki 's Princess Mononoke helped influence the monsters' design and approach; Vogt-Roberts stated, "Miyazaki['s] Princess Mononoke was actually a big reference in the way that the spirit creatures sort of have their own domains and fit within that.
So a big thing [was] trying to design creatures that felt realistic and could exist in an ecosystem that feels sort of wild and out there, and then also design things that simultaneously felt beautiful and horrifying at the same time.
The two-armed pit lizard from the King Kong film was used as a reference for the Skullcrawlers. At the same time as the announcement of Vogt-Roberts as director, the studio also announced that Tom Hiddleston would play the lead role.
Simmons and Michael Keaton were attached to roles, but they left due to scheduling difficulties. Jackson to replace the role Simmons vacated, while John C.
Reilly was eyed for Keaton's role but not offered it yet. Tom Wilkinson was also offered a role in the film. On August 20, , Toby Kebbell joined the film's cast, while Jackson and Reilly were confirmed for roles.
Principal photography on the film began on October 19, , and concluded on March 18, Locations included Honolulu's Chinatown and the Kualoa Ranch and Waikane Valley Ohulehule Forest Conservancy on Oahu.
Vogt-Roberts has cited several films that inspired Kong: Skull Island , stating, "If I were going to break it down for people, I'd say you obviously have Apocalypse Now and just the era of '70s filmmaking, with films like The Conversation , too.
Also Platoon was an inspiration, and the South Korean film The Host as well. The entire Neon Genesis Evangelion series was a big influence.
Henry Jackman composed the score. Since the film takes place in the s, Jackman blended '70s psychedelic guitars into the score.
That's a field day for a composer. The soundtrack was digitally released on March 3, , through WaterTower Music and then later released in by Waxwork Records on a double LP.
Regarding the music used in the film, Vogt-Roberts stated, "I wanted to use songs from the Vietnam era and a myriad of hits from the '70s The music, which serves to both heighten the film's emotion and underscore the action, was one of the final creative elements to fall into place during post-production.
It was the culmination of a massive undertaking that had taken the production to three continents. The merchandise for the film was a Walmart exclusive in A large Kong figure was the main toy featuring a Jack Chapman with a missile launcher.
In addition to Walmart selling the toys, Amazon. Also, two costumes for Kong were made and sold during Halloween.
One of them is a standard costume, while the other was an inflatable Kong suit. On April 7, , Legendary announced a four-issue graphic novel series called Skull Island: The Birth of Kong.
Acting as both a prequel and sequel to the film, an adult Houston Brooks nearing retirement from Monarch in learns that his missing estranged son with San Lin, Aaron, led a team on a secret mission to Skull Island in the mids.
During the mission, the team uncovered secrets of Kong's past and how he became the last of his kind.
On December 12, , a paperback collection was released. A novelization by Tim Lebbon was released on March 14, Kong: Skull Island was originally scheduled to be released on November 4, , but was pushed back to March 10, The new release date coincided with the franchise's 84th anniversary.
It was released in 3D and IMAX 3D , Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range, and Dolby Atmos sound in Dolby Cinemas and presented in 70mm. Kong: Skull Island was released on HD Digital on June 20, , and on 4K Ultra HD, 3D Blu-ray , Blu-ray, and DVD on July 18, It opened in every market except Japan and China.
Kong: Skull Island received generally positive reviews from critics. The site's consensus reads, "Offering exhilarating eye candy, solid acting, and a fast-paced story, Kong: Skull Island earns its spot in the movie monster's mythos without ever matching up to the classic original.
Michael Phillips of The Chicago Tribune lauded the film, giving it three-and-a-half stars out of four: "I saw little in [Vogt-Roberts'] first feature to indicate the deftness and buoyant spirit he brings to Skull Island.
This time, the money's on the screen, but it bought a really good movie, too. It was a movie that was not at all on my radar as something I was dying to see and yet I had way too much fun watching it.
I just wished it had embraced its craziness just a little bit more. But, yes, there's still plenty of crazy to go around. Conversely, Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian awarded the film one out of five stars.
In his negative review, he described the movie as a "fantastically muddled and exasperatingly dull quasi-update of the King Kong story.
Jackson striking the right tone of crazy amid the chaos. Jones questioned the film's setting, saying "this Jurassic Park knockoff takes place neither in the Depression era, which gave us the original King Kong , nor in the present, when satellite photos would surely alert us to the existence of a foot gorilla.
Instead—and for no reason I can fathom, except perhaps the classic-rock tunes desired for the soundtrack—the story takes place in , when the Vietnam war is winding down and President Nixon is being driven from office.
In September , Legendary moved Kong: Skull Island from Universal to Warner Bros. Legendary plans to create a shared cinematic franchise "centered around Monarch" that "brings together Godzilla and Legendary's King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant super-species , both classic and new.
