KING KONG Prequel, SKULL ISLAND, Should Shed Some Light On How Kong Became King

"Kong: Skull Island" plot has been revealed to be a prequel to trace the origin of Kong before he became the ruler in the Skull Island but the more surprising matter to realize is that the movie is set in the original movie's future.

How is that possible?

The set is apparently going to take place in Detroit during the 1970s. The original King Kong period was timed in the 1930s in Peter Jackson's King Kong which was hugely successful in its release in 2005.

Although there were King Kong movies in the eras of 1976 and 1986, a prequel that promises an "entirely new, distinct timeline" that still "honors the foundations of existing King Kong lore" brings avid viewers of the giant beast to anticipate the release of the movie.

It has also been previously announced that Tom Hiddleston of the Avengers and Thor Series, Michael Keaton, and J.K. Simmons of Juno are the lead cast of the new King Kong.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) is directing the movie and is written by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla).

The plot and time setting of the movie is quite confusing at present but all the makes it more interesting to wait and see what it can offer.

The filming starts in the very "Skull Island" located in Kauai, Hawaii in May 2015 that has been codenamed, "Titan" according to the locals.

The prequel to all King Kong stories "Kong: Skull Island" is scheduled to hit theaters on March 10, 2017. 


  1. Its possible because they are talking about the VERY original King Kong film in black and white which was from the 1930's Peter Jackson just choose to honour that time and setting. The 1975-76 version with Jeff Bridges just modernised the classic story to that modern audience of the time. Successive films ever-after have tried to re-juvinate the concept then Peter Jacksons version being the most recent in our minds. So if this new film begins in the 1970's for what ever reason it may run like Madonna's W/E film where in the modern day key triggers and heirlooms tell a story making the film flash back to those key moments in history and similar in example to how Titanic achieved this with Rose's character seeing things and reminders of Titanic and causing her to flash back to her experiences at the time...
