Here’s an incredible Japanese poster for Kong Skull Island

7 February 2017 5:41 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With just a few weeks to go until the mighty beast is unleashed now is a good time to catch up with what we’ve seen so far.

Our initial trip to Skull Island was via a curiously tentative first trailer, which was superseded by a gloriously monster-focused Japanese version.  Then we had a very impressive IMAX poster inspired by the famous Apocalypse Now marketing, complementing an already fine selection of posters for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ film.
