The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
In the official Monarch timeline posted on the Facebook page for Kong: Skull Island, the label given to Ghidorah is "Monster Zero", which was the name given to him by the Xiliens in Kaijû daisensô (1965). See more »
The location of Skull Island shown on MONARCH's big map (somewhere far south and somewhat east of Hawaii) makes absolutely no sense considering a dogfight happened there between an American and a Japanese pilot in 1944. See more »

The Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures logos appear in an ancient carving of monsters.
This is one of the most beautiful movie to watch today. The cinematography and graphics are out of the world. But the story sucks due to heavy involvement of humans in the story of monsters. It's funny how much role a 5 foot girl plays in a movie of these reckless monsters.
