The King Channels Colonel Kurtz On This APOCALYPSE NOW-Inspired IMAX Poster For KONG: SKULL ISLAND

The first trailer for Kong: Skull Island drew a lot of comparisons to Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 masterpiece, and this awesome new IMAX poster pays direct homage to that film's iconic one sheet...

EW has debuted a cool new IMAX poster for Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island, which pays tribute to Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now by switching the deranged Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando) for the equally dangerous (but slightly less bonkers... we hope) King Kong.

The poster would seem to be a direct response to the tone of the trailers, which even feature John C. Reilly channeling Dennis Hopper's nameless photojournalist character.

It remains to be seen how much Skull Island actually draws from Coppola's epic, but you can probably count on fewer decapitations and real-life animal sacrifices at any rate.



A team of explorers and soldiers travel to an uncharted island in the Pacific, unaware that they are crossing into the domain of monsters, including the mythic Kong.

Starring Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Jing Tian, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham, and Toby Kebbell, Kong: Skull Island is set to be released on March 10th, 2017.
