Kong Skull Island (2017)

Film details


Fantasy adventure. In 1973, the NASA Landsat satellite draws the government's attention to the existence of Skull Island in the South Pacific. A team (including biologists, geologists, US military, a decommissioned British SAS captain, a Yale-educated journalist and a seasoned war photographer with a nose for a story) travels to the mysterious island, which is surrounded by a perpetual storm front. There they encounter the giant ape Kong, whose destructive power is no match for them. Yet Kong is the least of their worries as, scattered in groups across the island, they meet numerous other deadly beasts, as well as some less hostile unexpected island dwellers.
