Michael J. Fox,
Carl Denham needs to finish his movie and has the perfect location; Skull Island. But he still needs to find a leading lady. This 'soon-to-be-unfortunate' soul is Ann Darrow. No one knows what they will encounter on this island and why it is so mysterious, but once they reach it, they will soon find out. Living on this hidden island is a giant gorilla and this beast now has Ann is its grasps. Carl and Ann's new love, Jack Driscoll must travel through the jungle looking for Kong and Ann, whilst avoiding all sorts of creatures and beasts. But Carl has another plan in mind. Written by
Ann's clothing changes throughout the period on the island when Kong has her; a narrow camisole-strap, a wide flat white shoulder-strap, or the untorn collar/shoulder fabric of her dress are randomly present on her shoulder at various times, and the condition of her clothing changes in how tattered and/or removed it is between shots.

At the end of the closing credits: "This film is dedicated with love and respect to the original adventurers of Skull Island: Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Willis H. O'Brien, Max Steiner, Robert Armstrong and ... the incomparable Fay Wray. They continue to inspire all those who follow in their footsteps." See more »
Just saw the premiere. Having never seen the original I was in for a treat. The acting was phenomenal. Jack Black played the movie producer
more like a caricature of movie producer. At first - comical. Towards
the end - more depth is revealed in his character as he shamelessly exploits Kong. Adrian Brody was also outstanding as the screenwriter that falls in love with Naomi Watts' character Ann Darrow. As for Watts, she showed her versatility as an actress in certainly the biggest action role she's played to date. The effects on the island were AMAZING as were the action sequences...the monsters and creatures that the director created were as terrific as they were terrible. My one nitpick: in some places plausibility of relationship between Ann Darrow and Kong was strained. In general a great flick.
