We’re already talked a bit on the upcoming King Kong movies, but now it looks like it will be the very first in a trio of monster movies surrounding the kaijus.
While this isn’t entirely surprising considering the current trend for movies, the movie’s Unit Publicist Gregg Brilliant has confirmed that Skull Island (King Kong’s next big thing) is not a sequel to Peter Jackson’s 2005 rendition of Kong. It also apparently won’t be a reboot but rather a brand new story about the big ape which is going to be in the “trilogy”.
The trilogy will include Skull Island, Godzilla 2 and Godzilla vs Kong. No relation to the upcoming Godzilla Resurgence/Shin Godzilla flick though.
Skull Island is expected to lead in to Godzilla 2 and in turn to the final crossover movie planned for the trilogy. Maybe this will pave the way for more crossover films with Kong and Godzilla in the future? we’ll have to see how well Skull Island does when it comes out.
